Fatal Instinct script
Synopsis: Fatal Instinct is a 1993 American erotic thriller comedy film directed by Carl Reiner. It parodies the erotic thriller movie genre, which at the time had reached its commercial peak. The film stars Armand Assante as a lawyer and cop named Ned Ravine who has an affair with a woman named Lola Cain played by Sean Young. Kate Nelligan stars as Ned Ravine's wife and Sherilyn Fenn stars as Laura Lingonberry, Ravine's secretary. The film's title is a combination of Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct, both of which starred Michael Douglas.

LOLA:

You really are incredibly stupid,

aren't you? I like that in a man.

NED:

I'd be insulted, but I know you're

serious.

LOLA:

You sound so sure of yourself.

NED:

I'm not as dumb as I look.

LOLA:

Let me buy you a drink, Mr. uh...

NED:

Ravine. Ned Ravine. And you are...?

LOLA:

Thirsty. What about that drink?

NED:

I'm on duty.

LOLA:

Brain surgeon?

NED:

Cop.

LOLA:

Oooo... and I bet you have a big

gun.

NED:

You lose.

Lola looks toward a nearby hot dog vendor.

LOLA:

If I can't buy you a drink...

(nods toward vendor)

...let me buy you one of those.

NED:

Who can say no to a weiner?

LOLA:

Not me.

Lola turns to the hot dog VENDOR, raising two fingers.

LOLA:

Two dogs. Hot.

She takes them... hands one to Ned. He picks up the plastic

mustard container to put mustard on her hot dog first.

NED:

You come here often?

LOLA:

Only when I'm in heat.

Ned REACTS to this, squeezing the container. A stream of

mustard squirts out, hitting the front of Lola's dress.

NED:

Oh! Sorry.

Flustered, he stuffs his hot dog into his inside jacket

pocket, then tries to wipe the mustard off Lola's dress,

smearing it all over her, making it worse. She watches him

with a cool, detached gaze as he fumbles ingenuously.

Suddenly, Ned stops, looking off. He sees... Milo Crumley

going into the PUBLIC RESTROOM. Ned starts to leave. Lola

grabs his hand, holding it tightly against her breast.

LOLA:

Where ya going?

NED:

Get something to wipe it off.

LOLA:

That's okay. You're doing just fine.

NED:

I'll get you a wet paper towel.

He heads for the men's room... signaling to Arch, who's

waiting in line at the Nacho stand. Arch motions at the long

line... all UNIFORMED COPS... shrugging helplessly.
