Every woman's nightmare
8 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every Woman's Dream is a very interesting story. If it were true, who were the characters upon whom it was based. Would love to know more about what happened to the character of Mitch - is he still on death row? What happened to his first wife, Candy? Does anyone know? Did this story take place in Florida and California? There are probably thousands of self-centered narcissists like Mitch and it is an important movie for all women to watch. No man is that perfect and it is surprising that his first wife took so long to figure out that he was such a liar. The movie starts out by claiming it is a true story, but I don't recall ever hearing anything about this. What about the senators and congressmen with whom Mitch had dealings? What happened to them?
