“Unforgettable” (Warner Bros.)
By Catholic News Service
Feverish domestic drama in which an obsessive ex-wife (Katherine Heigl) conspires against her former husband’s (Geoff Stults) fiancee (Rosario Dawson), eventually framing her rival for murder.
Director Denise Di Novi keeps the pot boiling but, together with screenwriter Christina Hodson, throws in some unsavory and gratuitous ingredients that limit the appeal of her film even for those with a taste for cinematic junk food.
Occasional violence with some gore, cohabitation, strong sexual content including graphic scenes of casual and premarital sexual activity and masturbation, brief rear and partial nudity, about a half-dozen uses of rough language, a few crude terms, a mild oath. The Catholic News Service classification is L — limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
