In Final Analysis, Richard Gere stars as Isaac Barr, a San Francisco psychiatrist whose alluring patient Diana Baylor (Uma Thurman) is being treated for traumatic memories. In order to find out more about her trauma, Diana suggests that Isaac speak to her sister and question her about what went on between them in the past. But when Isaac sets eyes on Diana's sister Heather (Kim Basinger), they become involved in a torrid and steamy sex affair. Unfortunately, Heather is married to psychotic sadist Jimmy Evans (Eric Roberts). ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Tantalizing double-crosses mount right up to the eerie final scene."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Things get weirder and weirder, until it's clear scriptwriter Wesley Strick's the one who needs analysis."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Since when did Basinger learn to act?!? Wow, quite a performance indeed."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"The film's worst elements come from the filmmakers. To say they've seen too many Hitchcock films is to understate."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"It's hard to care in the end."
‑ , Time Out
"Most audiences are likely to emerge dazed and a little goofy, convinced they've seen a humdinger, but unable to quite describe it."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A clever whodunnit.....Basinger and Gere raise a little heat"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"In its conclusions, this movie is so cynical, so evil, that it would inspire despair were it not so incompetent."
‑ Kathleen Maher, Austin Chronicle
"The movie attempts to top each of its revelations with still another until reason bends and interest flags."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Has so many twists, turns and backward leaps, the actors tackle their work like trained poodles in a circus act."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Great trashy fun: Don't drink the cough syrup!"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Far too much of the plot is like that of too many other films with very similar plot twists. Fans of classic thrillers, be warned."
‑ Mark R. Leeper,
