So ridiculous it's funny!
Verified purchase
If you don't like that kind of humor, then this movie isn't for you. But if you have a love of dark comedies with an overwhelming amount of ridiculously retro flair, this movie is the best! Perhaps the most comprehensive lovers revenge comedy I've ever seen!

One of ATF of the 1980's .....

There is something that is so uniquely ...perverse about a WOMAN .. That decided to "Get Even" ... with a Man that has done her .... WRONG ! It's best to use these ...tactic's .. than the obvious ..?? Let's face it ... none of us as women will stay ... YOUNG and Beautiful forever . Especially if your married and you assume that your husband will ...always . Have that romantic ..feeling for you like he once had when you both were teenage in love or 20,30 or even 40 something when you were sot by "Cupid's arrow".. ?? Men are very fickle creature's and they ..will get bored and move from . One woman to the next ... There are some people who dis the film. While the others ..rather enjoy it.. In life ..we all will never lean into the same pond ... I like the mother character, the judge and the book agent parts. All three of those ladies have passed away .. I love the house typical of the posh " 1980's at the time .. The story hit's home for many of a woman who has been hurt and betrayed by a man . I will see this again... even though it's been on cable ...in full repeat re-run's since the 1990's .. and I only watch Prime for my viewing pleasure ...

Campy but...

I’ll admit, even in 2021, this movie is right up there with “Mommie Dearest” (a true nightmare to watch). It’s undeniably 80s camp. Having said that, I still find myself strangely attracted to it, after all these years. I’m still mesmerized by Roseanne’s character (the lengths she went to get revenge on her husband was BIZARRE), but I’m here for it.

i thought i'd give it a secone chance

I saw this when it first came out and didn't like it. But, I thought that I would see if time was kinder to this movie. It wasn't. My biggest problem with this movie is Ed Begley, Jr. He wasn't hot then and he isn't hot now. In fact, I had to stop watching at the scene where he and Meryl were literraly tumbling around her bed wrapped in a sheet because he is just so unappealing to me. As for Roseanna, surely they could have found a way to make her a frump even without going overobard with that thing on her face?
As for Meryl, she is beautiful but she is what I would say is movie star beauitufl. Striking, yes, but I don't think she's sexy here at all. Mary Fisher is no Miranda Preistly which is Meryl's comedic tour de force!

Shedevil - A guilty pleasure worth having
Verified purchase
This is one of my favorite roseanne barr movies. Its an older 90s movie and a little campy, the house burning down scene comes to mind.
But this does have meryl streep a martinez and ed begley jr too. And we cant forget the fabulous linda hunt
mary fishers mom is one of the best parts in this movie by far as well.
This is not for younger kids under 14, because of sexual situations i feel.
Enjoy the movie for what it is, an escape and a laugh with friends who regal each other with tales of hair like meryl or 90s roseanne!
So grab some popcorn, get comfy and watch....

Still great after 30 years.
Verified purchase
I have loved this movie since 1989! I have owned it as VHS, DVD and now I am thinking of buying the digital copy too. I never miss an opportunity to watch it when I stumble upon it and today was no different. It is still a great and funny dark comedy. It really doesn't get old for me. I still find fun little details that I hadn't noticed before.

Simplistic, Superficial, and Stultifying
Verified purchase
The most interesting thing about this movie is trying to figure out why Meryl Streep and Linda Hunt would agree to be cast. The plot is cliche and predictable and everyone character is a walking stereotype. Streep is mildly entertaining (which is a miracle, given the script) and that's the one and only positive thing I can say about this movie. Life is too short for this drivel, so save yourself and walk away now. Quickly.

YAAAYYY!!!!
Verified purchase
I have looked for this on DVD for YEEEAAARRRRSSSSS. and could NEVER find it, and when I DID find it the price was unimaginable. I'm NOT paying $60 for a movie!! But found it here at a VERY reasonable price and am ecstatic to FINALLY have it in my collection of DVD. Disc in good working order. Case clean and intact. Wish they had printed a disc with special features. Would LOVE to see behind the scenes and bloopers. Oh well. Will look here to order again.
