Basic Instinct 2: a downmarket version of Basic Instinct is actually possible!

In case you haven’t yet seen the ‘leaked’ footage of Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction, I envy you. Would that I could go back to those heady, innocent days. You can view it over on Rope of Silicon (hmmm…) if you want, but I warn you:

  1. It’s very, very bad
  2. It’s so very, very bad, you’ll be pining for the high quality writing that Joe Eszterhas brought to the original
  3. You’ll wonder what the hell David Morrissey was thinking. Okay, you probably won’t. It’s quite clear what he was thinking. But will you be able to take him seriously again? Could you take Michael Douglas seriously once you’d seen him in that v-neck down the night club? No. You couldn’t.

But you’re a grown adult, I take it, so if you want to make that choice, it’s up to you. But you won’t be able to go back. Oh no.
