Unforgettable 3.0 stars

Unforgettable movie poster

It’s been two years since Katherine Heigl has appeared in a movie. Imagine my horror when, halfway through the trailer for Unforgettable, a warning voice began yelling in my ear: Oh no... it can’t be... SOMEONE WENT AND BUDGETED ANOTHER KATHERINE HEIGL PICTURE! But my horror was (somewhat) misplaced: the queen of failed romcoms here trades in her ill-fitting bridal gown for a more icy couture, and the shift into darkness makes for a good fit in this superior domestic thriller. It's more than just a typical possessive-ex revenge pic — with Heigl's mephitic villain and her even-better stalkee Rosario Dawson to thank. Great cinema? Get real! It’s a stalker picture starring an entitled TV actress on the skids. But for what it is, and in consideration of the expectations that accompanied me into the theatre, this was a hell of a lot better way to spend the afternoon than anticipated. This marks famed producer Denise Di Novi’s (Heathers, Edward Scissorhands) first time in the director’s chair. 2017.
