1996 Certificate: 18


With his cool car and James Dean attitude, older guy David (Mark Wahlberg) is teenager Reese Witherspoon's dream boyfriend - and her father William Petersen's worst nightmare. Turns out Daddy was right when David shows his true colours... as a violently possessive psychopath. Wahlberg certainly makes his mark in his first leading role, while director James Foley ratchets up the suspense in the 90s noir tradition of Bad Influence, The Hand That Rocks The Cradle and Single White Female.
