Blu-ray Review: Unforgettable

Synopsis:
Barely coping with the end of her marriage, Tessa Connover learns that her ex-husband, David, is now happily engaged to Julia. Trying to settle into her new life, Julia believes she has finally met the man of her dreams, the man who can help her forget her troubled past. Soon, Tessa’s jealousy starts to consume her, and she will stop at nothing to turn Julia’s paradise into the ultimate nightmare.

Thoughts:
Drawing comparisons to films like ‘When the Bough Breaks’ and ‘The Boy Next Door’, Unforgettable is a guilty pleasure thriller which boasts an impressive cast including Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl. The film benefits from its self aware storytelling which helps the cast pull off over the top performances, Heigl especially. There’s a certain amount of campiness that the film provokes which makes it more than watchable.

Though the script is generic with little character development, both Dawson and Heigl are able to command the screen and give convincing performances as Julia and Tessa. What makes Unforgettable better than the films it’s being compared to is simply the trashy fun that ensues throughout. Often playing like a soap opera on cable TV in the afternoon, the twists and turns are frequent and extreme.

Special Features:
– Reclaiming What’s Yours: Making Unforgettable
Director’s Commentary
– Deleted Scene with Commentary

Release Date:
Unforgettable is now available to own on blu-ray, dvd, and to purchase or rent on streaming services such as CinemaNow, iTunes, PlayStation, Xbox, YouTube Movies, and others.
