Director John Dahl's The Last Seduction is an updated film noir centering around a seductive, cheerfully lethal femme fatale. Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino) talks her gullible, easily manipulated, doctor-husband Clay (Bill Pullman) into pulling off a $700,000 drug deal to pay off his gambling debts. But while Clay is in the shower, Bridget quietly leaves with the money. She ends up in a bar in a small town where she meets Mike (Peter Berg) and uses him to further her scheme to keep the money and get rid of her inconvenient husband. Linda Fiorentino was championed by many critics for a Best Actress Academy Award nomination, but neither she nor the movie could be nominated since the film had made its debut on cable television. ~ Linda Rasmussen, All Movie Guide

Red Rock West
John Dahl's best noir to date developed an almost immediate cult following and deservedly so

Almost forgettable thriller is still watchable, all the more so due to Fiorentino's presence

After Dark My Sweet
Oh, the games lovers play! Lurid, smart little noir based on a Jim Thompson novel

the other review had it right, as comedy ok, complete disappointment, as film noir or thriller. Expected something much more from this movie; long time Linda Fiorentino fan, since 'After Hours' ( with the exception of the opening scenes in the call center where she seems to love the pacing and taunting, she seems so bored, not radiating the fun she should be having manipulating all the poor saps ), Bill Pullman segues from this poor guy here, to be further abused, but with revenge and a life again, last seen triumphantly driving away, in 'Lost Highway', and Peter Berg, who as Johnathan handled that joyful maniac, Horace Pinker, pretty easily, but here cannot seem to recover from his truncated marriage prior to meeting the Wendy version of the advice; unless you just want to see these actors in a movie, see something else. What Jim Thompson could have made with this story line...and what James Foley and/or Stephen Frears could'a done directing it...a real pity that it is not a better movie

When viewed as a comedy, this is a funny movie. If you expect to get a serious drama, you will be disappointed.

The characters are so over the top and the plot so ridiculous, I was in stitches through the entire movie.
