I'm Not Gonna Be Ignored, Dan!

Have you seen this movie? If not, then you should.

I was only 4 when it premiered, but I've always heard so much about it. Then, just a few weeks ago, Michael Douglas and Glenn Close were on a pre-Oscar special. Curiosity? Piqued.

A quick search through the channel guide turned up a listing on Encore or some free movie channel, and I recorded it. Whoa. It's definitely rated R. But it's also a stellar performance by Glenn Close. She plays this lonely lady who becomes obsessed after a one-night stand.

I had already seen the famous clips and heard about the ending (which I won't spoil, in case you haven't), but it didn't matter. I was glued to the TV. It took none other than Cher in Moonstruck to beat Ms. Close to the Oscar that year. Hmm...maybe I should search that one, too.

Do you ever run across movies you heard about as a child and later watched as an adult? I recently watched Norma Rae, as well, and it was excellent.


  1. Ok, really sad confession..I just saw Braveheart -- like two weeks ago. My parents deemed it too violent for me when it first came out, and I guess it took me a little while.

    Still have to see fatal attraction

  2. I seriously just watched this a couple weeks ago for the first time. Only we caught it when it was about to end. Does that even count?

  3. I love this movie. It's one of those I didn't catch till much later.

    I watched Interview with the Vampire the other day for the same reason. I thought it would freak me out. It was laughable.

    Sorry I missed you this weekend. And, yes, you must see Moonstruck.

  4. great post. i never saw the real R version but i've seen this movie many times on channels like USA or Lifetime. LOVE it!
