Over the weekend, my best friend and I decided to watch the new Netflix film, Secret Obsession.
Her boyfriend also joined us and from the get-go, he wasn’t thrilled that THAT was the movie we’d picked for a Sunday night viewing. To be fair, we didn’t give him the option to suggest anything else…
He was actually so not into the movie, he chose to wear her pink headphones and watch another movie on his laptop in the living room – while rattling off facts like the below to us:
“It’s gotten 4.3/10 on IMDb”
“AND 33% on Rotten Tomatoes”
But my favourite comment from him was:
“Guys, I can’t believe you’re actually watching this.”
I think we heard that about 10 times…
Look, the movie wasn’t great – but it was one of those movies that’s so bad, it’s good.
To sum it up in one sentence: it’s about a girl who wakes up with amnesia and her husband takes care of her… but all is not as it seems.
As you watch it, you realise that bits are predictable.
And you’re faced with SO many questions:
- Why does she eat so many scrambled eggs for breakfast?
- Why is her husband allowed to identify his wife purely by her tattoo and not by showing ID?
- Who is the man with the flowers?!
Anywho, many people have taken to Twitter ask their questions so if you’ve seen the movie, you’ll no-doubt be able to relate to the below!

Just curious… there’s no way “Russell” could know she’d get hit by a car and get the brain concussion that would result in her amnesia. So what exactly was his game plan? Something doesn’t add up #SecretObsession pic.twitter.com/GxC4Ey6fZl

Watching the new movie #SecretObsession on @Netflix and the only thing suspenseful about it is how in the world she managed to eat this obscene amount of scrambled eggs for breakfast. pic.twitter.com/z3ILc5wbLw

This man really went through every picture in the house and photoshopped them but missed something like reflections and lighting that’s obviously different. Dumb criminal 🤦🏾♀️ #SecretObsession pic.twitter.com/AIiLHV5iAz

If you haven’t watched it yet, add Secret Obsession to your must-watch list.
It’s trash-tastic and wonderful and bad and good and great all at the same time.
