It's a fucking coma!
A fucking *coma*?
Well, I'm very sorry.
No, *I* am really sorry, because this really bollockses things up, doesn't it?
Well, it could delay the divorce indefinitely. I'm sorry, Ruth. That's the way of the world. The comatose often have the last word.

I don't know about this one, I hate to be down about this film: the idea of the film was interesting, and the acting was passable. Where it fell down was in the storyline, it just felt dull. Amanda Donohoe just felt too bland as a suffering housewife, dealing with her husband's infidelities; I'm used to her playing lesbians and snakewomen and stuff like that. I can't even imagine a fat lard like Harry would be cheating on a hotwife like Ruth (Donohoe); but I suppose if we could accept Michael Douglas cheating on hotwife Anne Archer with Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction, then we can accept this. I just wasn't convinced by the characters in this movie.
