While investigating a murder, a detective is lead to a sexy novelist who may be the culprit. Or is she?
This is the movie that made Sharon Stone a star; and I would be too if I showed my junk on the big screen. All coochie shots aside, Basic Instinct is a fast-paced, steamy film noir that never ceases to entertain. The script is a bit hokey at times, but luckily the director never takes the film too seriously. Stone is terrific as the femme fatale and Douglas stands up just as well.
This would make a good double-feature with Wild Things, another humorous erotic-thriller.
