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.

Superb performance in a compelling film
22 July 2004 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Meredith Baxter gives a superb performance in this film and its sequel. She captures the cold narcissism of Betty Broderick and manages to play scenes of rage in a surprisingly subtle manner. For example, in the scene in which Betty trashes her ex-husband's house, Meredith approaches the destruction with great nonchalance, which is ultimately more frightening than if she had played it full-on. She taps into the smugness and sense of entitlement that were strong components of Betty Broderick's personality and allowed her to murder two people in cold blood.
