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

Great soliloquies from Hopkins!
7 August 1998 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

For a TV movie, this is awfully good. Hopkins spends much of the movie playing out scenarios of how his murder trial would play out if he killed his wife, with a portrait of his father playing the judge. He goes through different methods of killing her, and plays out the trial until he finds the mistake in his plan. These one-man scenes are very funny, and Hopkins delivers them expertly, as one would expect.
