She screamed a lot. I don't dislike her as much as many people did. Not a great actress but fairly likable and personable.

Kim is a lot more versatile than she's given credit for. I'm partial to her early work like Hard Country and The Natural.

Fuck you r5. She was awesome in 9 1/2 weeks.

She was too old.

Too old for what? Too old for the Michael Keaton in his late thirties? Too old to be a world-famous photojournalist, a career that takes a long time to establish?
If anything, she was too young.

R11 - It didn't hurt, but she would have been beautiful bald.

Sean Young would have been amazing as Vicki Vale.

Kim Basinger was one of the sexiest woman ever to grace the screen.
She was great in 9 1/2 weeks and LA Confidential for which she one the academy award.
The best femme fatale during 80's and 90's.
She was sex on a stick.

I've never paid attention to her (haven't even watched her Oscar-winning performance), but I recently watched a documentary on Rita Hayworth on YouTube, which was narrated by Basinger and OMG her style of reading was so annoying, I barely made it through the hour without wanting to drip hot wax in my ears! Who talks like that?!

*snort* Vicky? Ice skater or stewardess?

Here is a short compilation of her best scenes in the movie.

R26 - Scream queen indeed.

Her hair was luscious. It's amazing how much it had grown out from 9 1/2 Weeks to Batman.

I thought she was fabulous. If you look beyond those scenes in the middle portion of the film where she's screaming, you will find a performance with a lot of depth. I love the way she plays Vicki's fascination with Bruce and her own trepidation. She looked fabulous, but she had that introspective quality that gave her substance too. I will always adore Kim Basinger and Michelle Pfeiffer in those first two Batman films. Their poignant performances mean the world to me.

Kim has a great girly scream and directors know it. All of her vintage late 80's movies contain 3-7 screams minimum.
Her hair IS fabulous, but I thought that changing the style every scene was a bit much. Would a wartime photographer with Time Mag covers really rock so many dos? I know, picky picky.
I would love to have read R5 before it was deleted since several of you have replied and it sounds like it was a monumental diss.

God, that was such a pervy scene.

Would've been better if the part was written as Silver St. Cloud,from the Steve Englehart/Marshall Rogers days, rather than Vicki Vale. Vicki never even made it to the 66 Batman TV series.
Basinger looks like a Milt Canniff or Howard Chaykin dame brought to life. She would have been great in an "American Flagg!" or "Blackhawk" film.
Isabelle Adjani would have been the ideal Talia.
Annette Benning's Catwoman was not to be, and Pfeiffer was phenomenal, but Benning would've been interesting.
Alicia Silverstone, Batgirl, now that's a travesty

I loved Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy. What a daring performance.

There was more MARY in that post than in the Counter-Reformation.

R35, I take it you haven't seen BATMAN RETURNS? That's Selina Kyle's haughty response after Bruce Wayne tells her that his former girlfriend was named Vicky.

Yes, and that was his answer: "Photojournalist, actually."
I practically know that movie by heart.
|by Anonymous||reply 40||03/14/2014|
r40, actually, his correct response was, "(laughs) No, she was, um, a photojournalist."

"Was Vicki right about your... difficulty with duality?"
I would have DIED to see Selina and Vicki in a scene together. If only Basinger had been in RETURNS for a cameo.

I loved that line r46. I love her performance in the film, apart from all the screaming but that's down to Tim Burton's poor direction.

Despite her beauty, Basinger had the ability to project amazing vulnerability. Her earlier works, even her guest stint on "Charlie's Angels" proved she had a quality that women could empathize with.
|by Anonymous||reply 48||02/18/2016|
So true. She had to go to a funny scary and vulnerable place to do Nine and a Half Weeks and the performance speaks for itself. Rourke's character gets inside of her mind and messes her up and somehow, she manages to persevere and get out of the situation and that final scene, she is just laid bare. Basinger deserved an Oscar for that film but the Academy preserves affectation of the Meryl Streep variety.
