Trivia

Many scenes in the trailer did not make the final cut because they re-shot the movie almost two years after it was first finished. The original version had, among other changes, a climatic fight between the two ladies with one dying. It was re-shot following bad feedback from test audiences. See more »

Goofs

Martha attempts to induce Helen's labor by spiking a cake with Oxytocin. We see Helen eat the cake, and then several hours later go into labor. The problem is that Oxytocin is broken down in the gastrointestinal tract and rendered ineffective. It needs to be injected or inhaled to work. See more »

Mediocre film with great cast (3/10)
29 December 1999 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I don't know whether they give Oscars for casting, but if that is the case, the person responsible for casting for this film must be at least a nominee. I'm just amazed how such established actresses as Lange and Paltrow have been agreed to take part in this 'plot is thinner than silk-paper'-film (blackmailing? ;->). Every scene is predictable and the story itself has been told thousand times. There aren't any camera-angles that make you say 'wow, nobody thought of that before' either, so the end-result is very average. I'm all too aware about the existence of bad mother-in-laws, so this one just didn't cut it for me... 3 out of 10.
