Quotes

Dan Broderick: I know this isn't the exact ring you asked for, but I thought it'd be more of a surprise. And you know... I kind of like this one better.
Betty Broderick: [surprised] You liked it better?
Dan Broderick: Well... uhh...
Betty Broderick: [calmly] Yes, you liked it better. And that's what counts, really, I mean, that's what it's all about. You make it, you spend it on what you want.
Dan Broderick: [flabbergasted] Geez, Bets, it isn't like it cost any less.
Betty Broderick: [becoming ballistic] Exactly! So, why not get me what I want? *You* certainly got what you wanted, even though...

Superb performance by Meredith Baxter.
22 March 2000 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

First off Meredith Baxter turns in a superb performance as Betty Broderick. She clearly was head and shoulders above all the others who had roles in this made for TV film. It is her and really her alone that makes this picture shine. Second, having lived in San Diego at the time this crime went down and watching it being literally beaten into the ground by the news media there I never thought I would find myself watching a movie in a theater or even on TV about this story. However I did and am glad I did. This was a good movie. Third, Yes Betty Broderick had a couple screws loose but I couldn't help myself feeling that Dan sort of got what he had coming to him.
