Derek Charles (Idris Elba), a successful asset manager who has just received a huge promotion, is blissfully happy in his career and in his marriage to the beautiful Sharon (Beyoncé Knowles).

Full synopsis »
In one corner, we have Beyonce. In the other, Ali Larter. Ladies, start your fighting. This is essentially the final act of the erotic thriller Obsessed
, and if I just ruined something for you, then you must have been hiding in hole when they were marketing this surprise hit. In the movie, Larter plays a sexy blonde temp who goes crazy over dashing Idris Elba and spends most of her time trying to convince the happily married man that he is indeed in love with her and not his hot wife. Beyonce plays the wife, and that's about as much as can be said about her character. Full movie review »
