Julia moves in with her fiance, David, but his ex-wife and her own haunting past join forces to rock her quiet suburban existence.
Remember the sweet Katherine Heigl from romcoms like 27 Dresses and The Ugly Truth? Well, it looks like constantly looking for love took a toll on her. Here, she's revamped her image and stepped into the shoes of a woman on the verge of madness. Tessa (Heigl) is the prim-and-proper American wife who wears pearls, speaks French and gives horse-riding lessons to her daughter. But her calm facade starts to crack when Julia (Dawson) enters her ex-husband David's (Stults) life. Old demons start rearing their ugly heads and Tessa loses control. She targets the new woman, emotionally manipulates her own daughter, stages a fight to win her ex's sympathy and even reconnects with Julia's ex on Facebook. And while all of this is supposed to make you detest her, you end up feeling like she just isn't trying hard enough! Being the supervillain in someone's life surely requires more effort than badly constructed lies and amateur social media hacks. And this is where the movie loses you. Romantic thrillers about deranged exes are a dime a dozen and Unforgettable doesn't have anything on the ones we've already seen. It looks like a half-hearted attempt at adapting The Hand That Rocks The Cradle and for a thriller, plays it too safe. The actors try to compensate for the predictability. Heigl is scary as the jilted ex with a stony disposition. Dawson plays a survivor of domestic violence and brings that vulnerability to her increasingly terrifying situation; a scene with her former lover is particularly impressive. But those are the only takeaways. We've seen crazier things done in the name of love on the big screen. Ultimately, it's easier seeing Heigl pine for love than seeing her try to snatch it away from someone.
