Awwww… this truly is a trip down memory lane. My top three dream interviews are with […]. I think this might be doable.
Paul Verhoeven's "Basic Instinct" may have had plot problems, but it didn't skimp on style, and its star, Sharon Stone, carried the whole picture deftly, as if it were a book perched delicately on the top of her head.

When Sharon Stone made her dazzling appearance on the red carpet at the London premiere of Basic Instinct 2, it was easy to forget that anyone else appears with her in the new film.

This, from the guy who gave us the three-breasted hooker in "Total Recall," the interrogation scene in "Basic Instinct" and Ken-and-Barbie fascists fighting giant space bugs in "Starship Troopers"? For shame!
At age 11, I was led into the movie theater by my father to witness a man being stabbed to death with an ice pick while orgasming beneath a nude woman thrashing her hair until the cries stopped and rigor mortis set in. Days after I saw the movie, I carried my plastic lunch tray across the cafeteria and told my friend Scott about the curious motion picture called Basic Instinct. Neither of us wondered why a parent would allow a child to see this movie.
Updated: September 14, pm. How else to describe the preposterous, overcooked goings-on in "Basic Instinct 2," the completely superfluous sequel to the so-so crime thriller made infamous by the sultry, suggestive crossing and un-crossing of legs by Sharon Stone? It's now passed into tawdry film lore: Was she or was she not wearing underwear in that taunting scene from the original as she sat across from Michael Douglas' hard-bitten, salivating San Francisco police detective and tantalized him with hints of her sadomasochistic murder spree?
