Michael Douglas is caught in that Fatal Attraction/Basic Instinct trap again, this time with Demi Moore as a former lover who is promoted above him in a cutting-edge computer corporation run by Donald Sutherland. When Moore seeks to rekindle their passion, the now-married Douglas has second thoughts at a vital moment, and the much-miffed Moore accuses him of sexual harassment. Based on a bestselling novel by Michael Crichton and directed by Barry Levinson, this self-important and unintentionally funny thriller purports to be about corporate power and sexual equality but there's precious little insight here. Moore models some slinky lingerie and Douglas soaks his collars in sweat, while the emphasis on computer gizmos and cyber-babble encourages a verdict of virtual rubbish.

Plot Summary

Thriller based on the novel by Michael Crichton, starring Michael Douglas, Demi Moore and Donald Sutherland. Tom Sanders is disappointed when he is passed over for promotion in favour of a former girlfriend, Meredith Johnson. Now forced to work closely with Meredith, Tom becomes the target of her seduction techniques. But when he rejects Meredith's advances, Tom discovers that he has been accused of sexual harassment.
