Malice - pretty bad, and yeah, the plot is absurd. You mentioned that Sorkin co-wrote it, but so did Scott Frank, who's got a pretty solid writing career himself. The little twist at the end is a real groaner. As far as neo-noirs with Bill Pullman opposite (SPOILER) borderline psychopathic women, The Last Seduction is a lot better. As far as Nicole Kidman playing a borderline psychopath, To Die For is a lot better.
I haven't seen The Circle, but worth mentioning it's based on a novel by Dave Eggers, a once-big literary name who I don't get the sense anybody cares much about anymore. Maybe the double one-two punch of 2012/2013's A Hologram For The King/The Circle getting adapted into apparently forgettable movies in 2016/2017 took the shine of his career. (I still like his debut memoir/novel A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius.)
