Roseanne, as I've said before is a great actress. In most of her roles she is playing a funny, bossy character who we all know and love. In this role, she is none of that. She plays a more serious role, and in the beginning, she a bit of a push over. She stars as Ruth, a dowdy, overweight mom of two. Ruth is well aware her husband Bob is sleeping around on her, she's even met the woman. When Ruth embarasses Bob, he moves in with his mistress reciting the four things that mean most to him in life. His house, his career, his family and his freedom. He also calls her a devil, so she writes the list down to reread, and destroy everything that means well to him. Meryl Streep plays the snooty, spoiled mistress. She is a romance novelist named Mary Fisher. As Ruth says many times in this movie, Mary Fisher lives in a beautiful mansion by the sea. Ruth acts much like Santa Clause with her list. She reads carefully and always checks each thing twice. First she burns his house, then she drops the kids off with him. She starts her own business to get people to be hired by him. (One of whom sleeps with him on a number of occasions.)She finds out he's been cheating his clients so she gets him sent to jail. All in a day's work. Not really, she meets this amazing woman who helps her along the way. Hooper really helped her out. If you like a fun, romantic or unromantic comedy with revenge on the side, I recomend She Devil.
