A married man's one-night stand comes back to haunt him when that lover begins to stalk him and his family.
In a 2013 interview with CBS News, Glenn Close admitted that she would have rethought her portrayal of Alex Forrest, because of her fear that the film's popularity may have been a contributing factor towards mental health stigma. "I would read that script totally differently," Close said. "The astounding thing was that in my research for Fatal Attraction, I talked to two psychiatrists. Never did a mental disorder come up. Never did the possibility of that come up. That, of course, would be the first thing I would think of now."
You better get going kiddo, we're gonna be late.
The time on the clock when Dan and Alex first make love.
Barbara Harris is sometimes credited under the name Barbara Iley. In the final credits here, under 'Party Guests,' she is credited under both names.
In the network version shown on TNT in the scene where Alex phones Dan at 2:13 a.m., there is additional dialogue between Dan and Beth after Dan hangs up the phone that is not in the theatrical/DVD version. Beth asks, "Who in the hell was that?" Dan says that it was a client calling and that this happens when you're a lawyer (being called at odd hours). Beth says that it's the middle of the night, still wondering why someone would call at 2:15 a.m. Dan justifies this by saying it's only 11:00 or so in L.A.
