Picks and Pans Review: Hexed

UPDATED 02/08/1993 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 02/08/1993 at 01:00 AM EST

Arye Gross, Claudia Christian

While it is being marketed as a spoof of Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct, this crass, grindingly dull, inane comedy is relevant to neither of those films, nor their genre, nor much of anything else.

Gross plays a hotel clerk who gets' involved with a French supermodel. Christian, which leads to a frenzied, convoluted series of events involving murder and blackmail.

Writer-director Alan Spencer must think it hilarious when a man punches or kicks a woman in the face or stomach; he fills his movie with such incidents, played for laughs. The dialogue is mostly a succession of mumbled and shouted insults.

Gross projects a slothful image that's hardly conducive to comedy. But Christian is ideal as a gorgeous con woman with great legs. She is obviously not afraid to look dumb. And she sure came to the right place for that. (R)
