So much fun to watch, and no it's not a high-brow film or arthouse fare. Just an oft-told tale by Hollywood standards, but the camp makes it worthwhile. Also? IDRIS ELBA.

Could have been good, but the sudden complication is not convincing. They should have been business acquaintances a couple of years beforehand, perhaps representing different firms in an extended negotiation. She should have been on an equal level, not a temporary employee.

Good movie, now I am wondering why it took SPL so long to order the movie. Don't go by the reviews, it is really good.

entertaining movie, not that good could be better. The actors did do a wonderful job.

Storyline was a little different than I expected which was a nice surprise. Not half bad.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Obsessed is Play Misty For Me and Fatal Attraction's ugly illegitimate child. It is boring, poorly made, and movies like this have been so overdone these past few decades. And Beyonce is a terrible actress who should stop trying because, frankly, she sucks. The editing and cinematography both failed, which made this movie very difficult to watch at times. The only reason this movie is getting one-and-a-half stars instead of one is because I love Ali Larter. Not in this movie, but in other stuff...

Beyonce was the wrong choice to play the wife, Sharon. She needs to take more acting lessons.
