Movie Review: UNFORGETTABLE (Blu-ray Combo Pack)

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

UNFORGETTABLE is the first film in the director’s chair for veteran producer Denise Di Novi and stars Katherine Heigl as Tessa; Rosario Dawson as Julia; and Geoff Stults as David. The main cast also includes film and television star Cheryl Ladd as Tessa’s mother, Helen; Sarah Burns as Sarah; Whitney Cummings as Julia’s best friend, Ali; Simon Kassianides as Michael Vargas; young actress Isabella Kai Rice as Lily, and Robert Ray Wisdom as Detective Pope.

Tessa Connover (Heigl) is barely coping with the end of her marriage when her ex-husband, David (Stults), becomes happily engaged to Julia Banks (Dawson)—not only bringing Julia into the home they once shared but also into the life of their daughter, Lily.  Trying to settle into her new life, Julia believes she has finally met the man of her dreams, the man who can help her put her own troubled past behind her.  But Tessa’s jealousy soon takes a pathological turn until she will stop at nothing to turn Julia’s dream into her ultimate nightmare.

Unforgettable follows Julia and David who are fairly new into their relationship and they get along great. There’s also Tessa, the jealous ex-wife who is having a very hard time letting go and moving on. David left her and for very good reasons! There’s also David and Tessa’s young daughter who has warmed up to Julia and Tessa doesn’t like that one bit. Anyway, Tessa comes up with a sleazy plan to hurt Julia (in more ways than one) and to break up the relationship hoping David will eventually come back to her. Not gonna happen! What happens is, Julia not only catches on to what Tessa has been doing but she discovers that Tessa has a history of violence and instability that goes all the way back to her childhood. All of this chaos leads to a violent cat fight to the death between the two women where winner takes all in this pyscho-thriller.

The packaging comes with a slipcover/o-card. The front of the packaging features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes movie details, some images and list of special features. Each disc has a flat black finish and features the movie logo. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for the high-definition disc were crisp and clear. The picture and sound quality for the standard-definition disc were really good. I didn’t have any issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Unforgettable wasn’t that good of a watch and it’s a movie that’ll remind viewers of about a dozen or so other psycho-thrillers similar to it. It fits right in with those cheesy Lifetime thrillers if you know what I mean. It’s hard to come up with something original and unfortunately there is nothing special about this movie. With that being said, the cast did a really good job with their characters and it was entertaining to watch Katherine Heigl channel her inner “Mommie Dearest” because she nailed it as the unlikable and beautiful crazy ex-wife. This was the directorial debut for Denise Di Novi and she did a good job considering the stale material she had to work with. Unforgettable releases on Blu-ray+DVD+Digital HD Combo Pack on July 25th.
