Don Champagne (Patrick Wilson) seem to live the American Dream; he has a successful family business selling furniture; he lives in a comfortable house in the suburbs; he has the perfect wife Mona Champagne (Katherine Heigl) and the perfect children Allison (Madison Wolfe) and Andrew (Aiden Flowers). However Mona is a cold woman that schedules the days that Don may have sex with her. When Don hires the gorgeous saleswoman Dusty (Jordana Brewster) to work with his salesman Les (Jim Belushi), they have a torrid love affair. Soon Dusty tells to Don that she is pregnant and has the intention of keeping the baby. Don does not have money that belongs to Mona but Les offers to lend some money to him. He offers thirteen thousand dollars to Dusty, but she blackmails him. Without any way out, Don discloses his affair with Dusty to Mona and she tells that he must kill Dusty to protect their family. But what they do not know is that Dusty is a swindler and lover of a dangerous gangster and his gang wants to take money from the Champagne family.
"Home Sweet Hell" is a very dark joke with the American Dream. Don and Mona seem to have the perfect life, but there is a sex problem between them. When Mona sees the risk of her programmed life be shattered by a blackmailer, she does not hesitate to get rid of the woman. The black humor is too dark and the conclusion with Mona totally out of control is inconsistent with her personality. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Lar Doce Inferno" ("Home Sweet Hell")
