The Perfect Neighbor (2005)

The Perfect Neighbor (2005)-* *

Directed by: Douglas Jackson

Starring: Barbara Niven and Perry King

The Perfect Neighbor is another knockoff of Fatal Attraction (1987). It's not a bad movie, but it's so predictable.

Donna Germaine (Niven) is middle-aged and lonely. Her last husband leaves her. She gets into a rage about that and kills him. After that, she leaves and moves into a small town. There she meets William Costigan (King) and falls in love with him. William is married, but that doesn't stop Donna from taking over his life.

This is a movie, you watch on the Lifetime Movie Network when you're bored as opposed to watching LMN when you're excited. When are these Fatal Attraction ripoffs going to stop? There are hundreds of them. For a movie like this to succeed, it needs to be original. The acting, directing, and writing are okay, but that's not enough to warrant a look.
