Israeli cheers: Up with 'Instinct'!

From: Shirley Smalheiser, Mitzpe Ramon, Israel

You should've given "Basic Instinct 2" the 4 stars the last line of your review suggested. My husband & I saw this film yesterday in Israel. We loved it. It's a romp... it's fun... it's beautifully mounted...it's unabashedly tintillating... Sharon Stone is gorgeous.... It's a mystery that leaves you wondering and discussing the ending
