The best work of Tom Selleck
7 April 2007 | by seepirtleSee all my reviews

Tom Selleck did a wonderful job of playing the part of Jack, the divorce lawyer. He showed a very emotional side of himself and played the roll very convincingly and with ease. The movie provided insight into how petty situations can become during a divorce. The scene with the fight over a little wooden horse was an awaking of how people react under the pressure of trying to get their fare share of property. Hopefully, Divorce Wars will one day be out on DVD.

Jane Curtain did an excellent job, as well. She and Tom Selleck played off of each other well and were a convincing couple of whom should not have been married.
