Basic Instinct : Gus was the only character I cared about.

Gus was the only character I cared about.

I saw this movie several times back in the day, and it hasn't aged well. I didn't really care about Nick and his dogged pursuit of a woman who invokes his DEAD WIFE as they're tussling. Maybe he was so filled with self-loathing he felt he deserved it, whatever. Gus was the only character I cared about. Anyone else?

Re: Gus was the only character I cared about.

He certainly didn't deserve the brutal death he received. Two of the people that truly cared about Nick were gone b/c Catherine, it is assumed he will get killed too, though he seemed to have a death wish.

Y'know, I could eat a peach for hours

Same here, I agree. Gus & Beth really did care for Nick, he lost them both being with Catherine as a result.

He was really vulgar in the diner, but he was "on the sauce," so I forgive him...

Re: Gus was the only character I cared about.

I agree. I liked Gus.
But he was dumb to go meet some random person on the phone, at an isolated place.

I didn't feel sympathy for anyone else either, really. Jeanne was sad but she was REALLY stupid not to do what Nick was ordering her to do!
And to know Catherine & lie about it, lie about her husband, even her hair dye!

Nick was a scuzzy asshat who couldn't get his brain out of his own crotch. Or Catherine's.
He basically got 2 people murdered. I mean, seriously, sex is worth ALL THAT?!

And Catherine wasn't even THAT hot.





I'd say this cloud is Cumulo Nimbus.
Didn't he discover America?
Penfold, shush.

They did have "the fVck of the century", don't forget! I'm sure howling hyenas everywhere would agree. (Sorry, all the screeching noises they made sounded like two hyenas howling). 😀

Don't let anyone ever make you feel like you don't deserve what you want.
