San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
It's that rare kind of movie that comes along only a handful of times each year -- gut-level entertainment that's oddly profound.

Lane is a force of nature. Her slow-burning, fiercely erotic performance charges the movie.

All the accolades Lyne got for "Fatal Attraction" -- and didn't really merit -- he deserves here.

Unfaithful doesn't push the melodrama the way "Attraction" did, but it lingers in the mind as much.

New York Daily News

By Jami Bernard
The movie doesn't stoop to cheap psychoanalysis and must be commended for a bravely ambiguous ending. But most of the credit goes to Lane, who is simply extraordinary as a woman whose body is at war with her conscience.

That's what's intriguing about the film: Instead of pumping up the plot with recycled manufactured thrills, it's content to contemplate two reasonably sane adults who get themselves into an almost insoluble dilemma.

Despite some fine, nuanced acting (it's Lane's movie, to be sure), Unfaithful doesn't get much deeper than a romance novel.
