Oh my gosh I have never finished a movie and been so infuriated.
This movie is just stupid. For one, the summary for this states “psychopathic mother in law”. She’s not psychopathic, maybe mildly at the very end but most of the movie she is nice.
What really infuriated me was that the “good” person won and the “bad” person lost. And it all was very unrealistic.
In summary, mother in law wants daughter in laws baby and wants to kill her and take her baby. I totally support the mother in law. I cannot stand the daughter in law. I wanted her to be killed. But the father rushes home in time because the new mom is killed. Wanna know why he rushes home? For no reason, he rushes home just because he had called the house and was told the phone was breaking up. No normal person rushes home from a big event just because the phone breaks up. Very poor excuse for him to rush home. Very coincidence. And then at the end they take everything away from the mother in law. COME ON. And on top of that the bratty daughter in law slaps her! I felt so bad for the mother in law. I couldn’t stand the son or daughter in law. But Jessica Lange is a great actress, I wish she had more screen time. And I wish she had been successfully in killing the daughter in law and raising her grandkid and then maybe along the way realize that getting a baby doesn’t fill the hole in her heart. They could have made this better. It wasn’t thriller or anything. It was a big boring and I kept waiting for the mother in law to be “psycho”. I don’t know , I’m on the mother in laws side because it’s fiction. If this was a real story, obviously I’d be on the daughter in laws side but in this movie, she was just unlikeable. Best parts are at the end, 40 minutes from the end.

If you love Jessica Lange in American Horror Story...
Verified purchase'll love this. Surely the producers saw Jessica Lange's performance and said "get her!" Lange's performance in this film identical to her role(s) in American Horror Story - the first season in particular.

Another reviewer extols this (now) camp classic much better than I can. However, if I can toot my horn, I declared it a future "camp classic" two decades ago. A rare prescient moment for me.

Great fun, this.

I am strongly pro life, this movie isn't, but I loved it. It focuses on the women's health and risks she needs to be made aware.

I am pro life. I loved this because it was directed by someone who makes it very clear she is pro choice, but is alarmed that women aren't being given facts about the health risks. Not designed to be a piece on pros or cons, simply a piece on what the facts are regarding a woman's risks are and why no one seems to be aware of them.
