* WhatHappenedToTheMouse?: Dan's lawyer buddy and his wife, apparently good friends with Dan and his wife, disappear halfway through the movie. The lawyer's last scene is warning Dan that Alex could sue him for child support, but that's the last we see of him.

* [[spoiler: BetterManHandleTheMurderWeapon: Dan takes a butcher knife away from Alex after the fight at her apartment. Note the lingering closeup of his hand on the handle as he places it back on the counter. In the original ending, it's the same knife she uses to kill herself with and try to frame him for murder]]

Added DiffLines:

** Dan: Commits adultery, breaking & entering, assault and intimidation. He nevers faces any legal consequences for his crimes against Alex. [[spoiler:His rabbit gets killed, his innocent wife gets hospitalized, but he suffers very little physical harm. He never has to take responsibility for his unborn child. And in the end, his wife apparently decides to take his lying, cheating ass back.]] Basically, everyone else suffers more for his transgressions than he does.

''Fatal Attraction'' was the top grossing movie of 1987, was nominated for several Academy Awards, and became hugely popular both in the United States and internationally. Alex Forrest was cited as a notable film example of someone with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erotomania erotomania]]. The movie was also the cause of much discussion about marital infidelity (and the DoubleStandard gender politics involved in the StalkingIsLove trope) for a good while afterward.
