Just saw this flick tonight


I never know when I see a movie depicting a personal relationship that truly has only two opposing witnesses, but I have to assume that some effort was made to present the facts. If this film depicts what actually happened, then I can say I felt almost ill by the actions of the characters representing everyone but Roxanne. The worst character of course was the completely self absorbed and abusive bastard "Herbert". If this story represents anything close to the truth (and I have no real reason to doubt its message) then Herbert should try to redeem himself somehow. If he dies in this state after completely destroying everyone in his family (recall that Roxanne was told prior to the marriage that Herbert's first wife claimed her life was ruined by him and he agreed), let's just say I find comfort in the concept of Hell and a final judgement. How else can anyone acccept this story without feeling ill? I literally felt dirty and ashamed to be a male before the film ended. Even after the divorce, he tried to charm her and kiss her and she put up with him. I would have kicked him in the crotch and spit in his face. He makes me sick. Knowing this story represents a real person that shares the air I breathe makes me ill. I hope he suffers a terribly painful and long death and I hope is starts as soon as possible.

Hey Chris, don't hold back, tell us how you really feel! Just kidding, and you're right. I felt like I needed a shower after watching this sordid tale of the ultra rich.

Roxanne appears to be having the last laugh. She remarried and apparently had her new husband help Peter (Herbert in the movie) financially.

I recall the previews about the movie. I have to catch it sometimes.

Lol, are you serious? The woman was/is a goldigging slutbag. No need to feel sorry for her whatsoever.
