Storyline

Into the small law offices of unlucky-in-love Charlotte St. John stumbles a handsome stranger, bloodied and battered, suffering amnesia. The good Samaritan, she cares for him, nurses him to health ... and falls hard for this mysterious angel. He reciprocates -- and good love finally finds Charlotte. But not for long, for their brief love affair hits the rocks when his identity is uncovered. Together they learn to their heartbreaking disappointment that he's already married ... twice. That's right, he's an amnesiac who forgot his was a bigamist. Though initially crushed that her perfect hero is just another perfect schmuck, Charlotte soon agrees to defend him against the bigamy charges, arguing that his injury has wiped out his former personality. In mounting her defense, she investigates his past ... and discovers that his vengeful wives may have uncovered his dirty bigamist secret months before -- and secretly plotted his violent downfall!

see it for Molly Ringwald
21 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Molly Ringwald is what makes The Wives He Forgot worth viewing. Had she not been cast as the lead I doubt it would have worked nearly as well. In summary: Ringwald is Charlotte, a heartbroken single attorney who is disappointed with the men she has dated. Literally one second after proclaiming she will find a decent man someday, a stranger, Gabriel (Mark Humphrey), storms into her office. Heralding him a hero, Charlotte believes she has finally found the perfect man. There are complications, though, as Gabriel has amnesia and has no idea who he is or where he has been.

As I stated, Ringwald is the glue that keeps this film from falling flat. Her acting skills are top notch and it shows. The film picks up in the second half and has some clever plot twists and a competent ending. The dialogue is sometimes intelligent and entertaining. I will say there are occasions where this movie comes off as too watered-down and silly. But, on the whole, it is fun and creative and I would watch it again. 7/10
