    The singer-actress' saucy, glamorously wry performance makes up for some of the film's inherent predictability.

    Isn't half as dramatic as what probably went down after she (Beyoncé Knowles) kicked LaTavia and LaToya out of Destiny's Child.
  3. Obsessed has little plausibility, but at moments it's an entertaining bad movie, and the performers are vivid.

    Takes far too long to get cooking, and it works so hard at NOT being exploitation that it loses sight of its reasons for existing in the first place.

    Larter just doesn't have the same bite as the bunny-killing stalkers of years gone by.

    Doing his best to class up the joint, "The Wire's" Idris Elba stars as the perfect man.

    Memo to Beyoncé Knowles: You were so good as Etta James in "Cadillac Records," so why'd you go spoil everything with a rank cheeseball thriller that buries you in clichés and won't even help you dig yourself out?

    I found this Movie to Be Very Entertaining!!! Though the Trailer did basically give the movie away!! my only problem was Beyonce's acting it seemed better in other movies that she made besides that awesome.. Love Ali Larter she is a spectacular Actress and Does an Obsessed very Good!! Expand

    I'll admit that I probably like this film more for the fact that it has Beyoncé playing a badass black woman trying to get her revenge, but overall it's quite an entertaining and thrilling film. Props to the two leading ladies as well as Idris Elba who is between them. It's a type of film that has been done before, but I personally don't think this well. It didn't get the best of reviews, but I quite liked it right to the very end with that rather forceful girl-on-girl fight! Expand

    It kills me to say that this movie wasn't all that bad. It was pretty damn tense. It might have been unintentionally funny at times, but it was still creepy. The main girl was a total psycho. Expand

    Is it cheesy? Yes. Predictable? Yes. Plausible? Not really. But what matters most is that it's much better than you would think. Sure, no one will be getting an Oscar for this film, but it is a fun thriller that is bigger on corny laughs than action. Expand

    When will directors understand if a movie does not have humor, thrill,drama, nudity, a shocking twist to it or an attempt to give its audience some goosebumps, then it will fail miserably. You can project exactly what was going to happen at the end from watching the beginning. This movie is more of a comedy then anything else!! good actors, written badly, They could have been way more creative!!! Expand

    Beyonce can not act her way out of a paper bag to save her life!!!!! Weak plot with bad acting. Atleast, Idirs and Ali tried to resurrect the movie but, to no avail. Ali rocked in the movie; good job. However, Beyonce dragged the movie through the gutters. I don't recall seeing any A-list actors at the premier!!!!! I should have taken that as a sign to stay home.
