This film is PAINFUL!!
31 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary and the people in it are insane. I think I lost all faith in humanity and in particular the female gender. Basically it is the story of how an wealthy hag kept a secret lover from her decent, hard-working husband. Then when the hag was dumped by her secret lover she mourned him for years. She became disconnected from her children and disconnected from her husband - eventually resenting him. Then 40 years later she hooks up with her ex-lover again and has another secret affair. This time her horrible, shameless and self-promoting daughters arrange the affair. Clearly they take after their mother. Genetics can be a beast..... Anyway, this is all for a childish fantasy of what Walt Disney portrays as love. I really felt horrible after watching this. I cannot imagine the pain the poor old man endured over the years living with someone who was that narcissistic.

Anyway the story should have been about how YOU will hate your spouse if you feel guilt every time you look at him or her. So, don't start relationships with other people and hide it. Poor Harold. If there is a hell, Phyllis has a spot saved for her. I only wish she had choked on the sheep bone instead of Harold. I guess life isn't fair though.
