When Cathy first comes out of the bedroom and overhears Larry and Noelle planning her demise, she has on underpants beneath her nightgown. But when she runs outside into the rainstorm and her nightgown gets soaking wet you can plainly see she has on no underpants. See more »
My family was very poor. My father was a stevedore. There were fourteen children, and we had to fight for our bread at the table. I was lucky; I was born with a talent for mathematics.

Interesting but meandering story of the parallel lives of:
1. A megalomaniac woman who uses her "assets" to ascend the ladder to stardom
2. A producer/housewife (Susan Sarandon) who desires nothing more than to have her husband present half of the time.
Her husband becomes involved with woman #1, and complications ensue. Somewhat predictable towards the end, but seeing an early performance (and brief nudity) by Sarandon makes it interesting and worthwhile throughout.
Film also features Luray Caverns, which happen to be located in my native Virginia.
** out of ****.
