Horrible hubby slaps spouse, kicks kids, dreams divorce, lambasts live-in, group grouses, chills considerably
28 March 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Ritter, usually Hollywood's Mr. Niceguy, plays a holy terror in this tale of raging spousal abuse. Very effective film showing how a family can be torn apart for years by a lunatic who was created by the actions of his own father. Realistically played out, this picture could serve as the 'poster' movie for a problem which is apparently more pervasive than I had supposed. A definite must see.
