Storyline

Palm Beach, Florida-one of the premier enclaves of the super-rich. A community in which private jets are as common as bottles of Dom Perignon. Young and innocent all-American beauty Roxanne Ulrich comes to town an outsider in this tightly knit society, but, by the time she leaves, she is its most notorious member. Roxanne is quickly seduced by the charming Herbert Pulitzer, handsome, older and possessing a confidence born of inherited wealth. Theirs is a whirlwind romance, the kind that exists only in fairy tales. But Roxanne's desire to raise a family conflicts with Herbert's breakneck life in the fast lane. Desperate to indulge himself, Herbert sweeps a confused Roxanne into a pattern of cocaine-fueled nights and affairs. She tries to break away from the depravity and devote herself to her children. The marriage is torn apart and a bitter divorce battle ensues. Soon the world is shocked by the intimate details of their decadent life. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Perry King as Pulitzer...
30 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was about yet another failed 80's marriage; in the wake of Donald Trump and Ivana; Perry King looks believable; Chynna Phillips looks a bit like Roxanne Pulitzer, an outcast in Palm Beach from the start.

Apparently this was an abusive marriage, and Roxanne was seen on the cover of the NY Post for awhile; she really didn't have a chance; at least she got custody of the children, Mack and Zach.

Courteney Cox portrays a fair weather friend, we see the usual conspicuous consumption (you may want to watch "Reversal of Fortune" for the Von Bulow story, similar theme).

Watchable. 5/10
