Even though there have been ads for Basic Instinct 2 on this blog, that doesn't mean I'm a slave to corporate interests. You might expect to read a favourable review, but I think regardless of all the media hype and advertising, there really aren't going to be any. In fact, I'm probably not even going to be seeing this movie, and here are some reasons why...
According to Page Six, the movie is just plain bad (Gee, who would have guessed). The dialogue is ridiculous, and of course, Sharon Stone really doesn't look that good.
Maybe Sharon Stone should have listened to those who thought "Basic Instinct 2" was a bad idea. At the premiere Monday night, audience members kept cracking up at inappropriate times, like when Stone intones, "Not even Oedipus saw his mother coming!" "The only thing worse than the dialogue were Sharon's implants," shrieked one wag. During the full-frontal nude scene, Stone's bosom seemed lopsided. But nary a negative word was uttered at the after-party at Mr. Chow sponsored by Dior.
And for those of you who just want to see it for the sex, well, you're going to be dissapointed too. Best Week Ever points to this but on Ain't It Cool News that says that there really isn't that much sex in the movie after all.
...if you've seen the internet 'trailer', then you've actually seen 75% more sex than is actually in the film. Virtually every frame of sex and nudity that appears in Basic Instinct 2, you've already seen. Let that sink in for a moment. I'll wait. Yes, there are exactly three sex scenes in this movie. One with a single nipple and some bobbing man ass. Another with a single nipple and some bobbing man ass. And a third, with two exposed nipples, and yes, dare I say it, more bobbing man ass. That semi hot looking threesome in the 'trailer'? Never actually appears in the film - the third person in that three-way...never actually appears in the film. And outside of the sex, there is one, single, gratuitous nude scene. Of Sharon Stone. All told, there is perhaps 20-30 seconds of actual sexual content in this film.
In fact, I think we mentioned a while back that there was a ton of nudity in the movie you wouldn't be seeing. Ah yes, "The Sharon Stone nude scene you won't see. Hint: There's an Orgy" is what is what called. Of course, we also told you that the nude scenes are disturbing, so it's not like this is anything particularly new.
At any rate, I sincerely hope that's it with the Basic Instinct news. And that Sharon Stone really won't return for Basic Instinct 3 (But maybe Sienna Miller will). Even I'm getting tired of it now. But just in case you have some sado-msichistic need to scare yourself repeatedly, here are some more pictures of Sharon Stone looking rather scary.
