Worth watching! WAHOOOOO
20 May 2002 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

You gotta love Lifetime with all the good choices in movies to show. Some real life and others fiction. "Burning Bridges" was actually worth it. Meredith Baxter Birney, Nick Mancuso, and Derek deLint played their roles very well. Kick ass in fact. MBB is the wife and her husband is Mancuso. MBB has an affair with the married DdL and realizes she loves him more than her husband. Soon after that she has a nervous breakdown, checks herself into a hospital to get better and get her life in order. The nervous breakdown was sooooo great too! One of the best scenes. It's so much fun watching characters break down. What's interesting is that MBB's husband confronts her lover but he runs into his office like a little girl. Then MBB confront's her lover's wife and I was laughing so bad. Yes, there were some bitch fights and that was fantastic. The story flows from start to finish. You should watch this movie for yourself. It's worth it. 10 out of 10 stars!
