This is the worst movie ever! Horribly written, directed and let's not even start with Beyonce's "acting". Beyonce you are a singer and that is what you should stick to. The "I'm every woman" thing is not working out for you.
I knew from the opening credits I was not going to be impressed with this movie, but still wanted to give it a chance. It is very predictable and just took too long to get to the point. My boyfriend and I ended up walking out of the movie with about half an hour left as we knew we already saw the best parts of the movie in the trailer. We just couldn't bear anymore suffering.
I think Idris and Ali are good actors (and Beyonce a good singer ) but they are definitely going to regret being in this movie and it surely will not help their careers. .. at least Beyonce has her multi-platinum selling albums to fall back on.
Anyway I predict this movie will get multiple award nominations - and the Razzy goes to Obssesed for worst movie of all time and to Beyonce for worst actress, and to everyone else involved for worst screenplay, worst director, .... ah you get the point. I will be very surprised if this movie earns back half of what it cost to film it.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS. Don't even waste your time waiting for the rental, it's just not worth it.
"Obsessed" is more of a road show version of "Fatal Attraction." The only thing missing is a boiled rabbit. "Obsessed" could've been the worst movie of the year if not for the supporting perfromance by Christine Lahti as the detective. She is much better than the whole cast, which gave us nothing more than second rate performances. One of the worst performance by a female is Beyonce Knowles. I have yet to see her in a good performance. She was in "Dreamgirls," but all she did was sing. Knowles never got into her character. I rank her performance on the same level as the music video "Single Ladies," when she ran around half-naked with two other women. She gave nothing to the movie. Ali Larter has already proven herself in "Legally blonde" and the Tv series "Heroes, " Her she in a second rate performance. Idrid Elba didn't help the movie either. "Obsessed" wants to be "Fatal attraction," and ends being fatal in it's own way.
