9 1/2 Weeks (1986) Director:  Adrian Lyne Writers:  Elizabeth McNeill (novel), Patricia Louisianna Knop(screenplay) (as Patricia Knop) Stars:  Mickey Rourke, Kim Basinger, Margaret Whitton   The title refers to the duration of the relationship between self-absorbed Wall Street shark Mickey Rourke and divorced art gallery owner Kim Basinger. Kim is looking for true love, while Mickey is searching for...gosh knows what. His notions of lovemaking include blindfolds, ice cubes, chocolate syrup, and rolling around on spent peanut shells. When the alotted 9 1/2 weeks are up, Kim has finally come to realize that Rourke has been using her. We could have told her that twenty minutes into the film.
