This is Stephen King's first self-adapted screenplay since "Pet Sematary," which was released 25 years earlier. The last feature film script he wrote was "Sleepwalkers," released in 1992. Since then he has written TV movies, mini-series and shows, such as "The Stand," "The Shining" and "Kingdom Hospital." See more »
During the opening scene at the 25th wedding anniversary party, a sinister-looking character (who turns out to be an investigator looking into a series of gruesome murders) sits at the bar looking at a newspaper with the headline: "Expect Beadie To Mail Latest Vicitm's ID."

I fled him down the nights and down the days. I fled him down the arches of the years. I fled him down the labyrinthine ways of my own mind. And in the mist of tears, I hid from him, and under running laughter.

I'm a huge Stephen King fan, the man is a genius when it comes to books. When it comes to his books becoming movies, not so much though. Don't get me wrong, some Stephan King books have translated into film's quite well, however "The Good Marriage" is not one of those.
I'll start off by saying I did not read the story that this film is based on. I'm not sure if the movie does it justice or not, I hope not though. The entire thing was just so slow and not entertaining at all. The story is very basic and really hardly goes anywhere. The acting is also pretty bad, some of the delivered lines were cringeworthy.
I really don't have much good to say about this film other than the last 15 minutes was alright. I really feel bad bashing it, because I wanted to like this movie. Just had a really really really hard time finding something to like about it.
