Don't expect a pot full of boiling bunnies, because nothing so creatively crazy ever happens in Obsessed, a "Fatal Attraction"-inspired predatory-female domestic thriller that spends much time spinning its wheels and making auds practically beg for an explanation to all the madness and obsession.

Isn't half as dramatic as what probably went down after she (Beyoncé Knowles) kicked LaTavia and LaToya out of Destiny's Child.

Obsessed has little plausibility, but at moments it's an entertaining bad movie, and the performers are vivid.

The singer-actress' saucy, glamorously wry performance makes up for some of the film's inherent predictability.

The film may seem a bit undercooked until it gets to the staging of the ultimate battle, but Obsessed is swinging from the chandeliers by the end.

Every move is telegraphed well in advance thanks to desultory writing, routine direction and ample musical cues.

Larter just doesn't have the same bite as the bunny-killing stalkers of years gone by.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
Unfortunately, the whole movie seems constructed just to get the singer/actress into a knock-down catfight, shoehorning one of show business's sexiest entertainers into a scorned-woman role. And even then, the pay-off feels cheap.

Memo to Beyoncé Knowles: You were so good as Etta James in "Cadillac Records," so why'd you go spoil everything with a rank cheeseball thriller that buries you in clichés and won't even help you dig yourself out?
