Basic Instinct 2

When you hear that there's going to be a sequel to a movie like Basic Instinct the first thing that comes to mind is "how much smutty, dirty and downright indecent sex will they try to get away with this time?" Well, the answer is 'Not a whole hell of a lot'. Actually, when compared to the original flick this is Sesame Street! Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone) is in trouble with the law again, this time in England, and gets involved with her court appointed shrink. Lots of manipulation and sex type stuff happens. Well, we get to see Granny Sharon show off all the liver spots on her breasts once, well, one and a half times, and that's all she wrote. The movie is pretty uneventful for the most part, actually it's pretty boring. Sure it has a cool twist in the finale, and its left open for debate as to what actually happened, but it's just not Basic Instinct if it doesn't make you feel dirty after watching it. Filled with crap dialogue ("Even Oedipus didn't see his Mother coming"), a horrible script and inept direction, is it any surprise this film is underwhelming garbage? At least it looks good.
