"Fatal Attraction" quickly became one of the signature films of the '80s. The movie launched a wave of similar thrillers, in which a yuppie's life is turned upside-down by a vengeful interloper. (See "Pacific Heights," "Cape Fear," "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," "Single White Female," and many others.) It made a star of Archer, changed the course of Close's career, and helped cement Michael Douglas' image as a certain kind of leading man. It gave director Adrian Lyne a reputation, too, as a sexual provocateur. Yet for others in the cast, it barely had an impact. Here's a look at how the stars and director of "Fatal Attraction" have fared over the past quarter-century.
