Storyline

Criminal defense attorney Arthur Jamison wants to get a divorce from his wife Louise Jamison. He knows that the downside would be the hefty alimony payments his wife would receive from him. Instead of facing this monetary dilemma, he comes up with an imaginary alter ego to help him plan the perfect murder of his wife. Written by mts77

Clever but - SWOOSIE KURTZ is the star here
7 November 2001 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

Lots of nice words about Hopkins and Danner in these reviews - which I both believe did a fantastic job in this play...but PLEASE....the quirky character played by SWOOSIE KURTZ is - by far - the most fascinating and her performance the most whimsically memorable in this wonderful murder mystery.

Even if I know what's going to happen, I love to run into this fascinating movie and it becomes new every time.
