Novelist Catherine Tramell is once again in trouble with the law, and Scotland Yard appoints psychiatrist Dr. Michael Glass to evaluate her. Though, like Detective Nick Curran before him, Glass is entranced by Tramell and lured into a seductive game.

Would be a INSTANT camp classic if crazy ass Sharon Stone (she's genuinely awesome here) was on screen the entire time and if we weren't subjected to endless scenes of wet blanket David Morrissey wandering around the city and being totally boring. The clear highlight is Stone's breathless monologue, “When you think... about FUCKING me... and I know you do... how do ya picture it... doctor?"
This movie is so retarded that makes it so funny. Every time Sharon Stone showed up, I started to laugh because she was trying REAL hard to look hot and mysterious, but all that I could see was just some old forgettable Hollywood hasbeen making this weird face expression.The first movie is a classic sexy thriller, the second one is retarded thriller wannabe with some talent wasted.
I feel people love to hate this movie almost as much as they love to overrate the original. Sharon Stone plays the exact same character in the exact same way, but for some reason, her performance her is ridiculed. I thought Morrissey and Stone do a pretty admirable job, particularly since the script is so damn awful. All in all, it's a stylish, great looking flop that is definitely in my guilty pleasure category.
Even though Sharon Stone still is one of the prettiest and sexiest actresses of all time, this movie makes it clear that she has lost her touch. Her performance in this film is not even close to be as excellent as the one in the 1992 film. Really bad movie, not boring, but bad. Of course, not the same Sharon, no Micheal, bad script.
