The movie Fatal Attraction isn’t your typical love story. However, it’s a common story of that jilted lover that the majority of us have experienced. In the movie we have the two main characters by the names of Dan and Alex. It was a relationship that started from what Alex liked to call, instant attraction. Alex and Dan first came across each other at an office party. Their relationship quickly escalated to something more. Alex didn’t want to just be a one weekend fling she wanted to be the wife. Only problem is, Dan is already married. It’s a simple story about the discrepancy between infatuation and being in love. When does ones actions just become a little carried away and it becomes a case of fatal attraction?

This innocent date turned into a lot more when Alex asked Dan was he discreet. He replied with a “yes” and things took off from there. They ended up having a weekend full of hot passionate sex. When Dan tried to leave to go back home, Alex decided she wasn’t having any part of that. She started throwing a temper tantrum and began to rip his clothes off. She then presumed to kick him out.
