Don Champagne seems to have it all: a successful business, a perfect house, perfect kids and a perfect wife. Unfortunately, when his wife, Mona (Katherine Heigl), learns of Don's affair with a pretty new salesgirl (Jordana Brewster), this suburban slice of heaven spirals out of control. Don soon realizes that Mona will stop at nothing, including murder, to maintain their storybook life where "perception is everything".Written by
Katherine Heigl and Kevin Mckidd previously worked together on Grey's Anatomy. See more »
When Mona tells Don to hit Dusty with a hammer, the orientation of the hammer head is not consistent in all shots. Don starts with the hammer head facing the SUV but in a couple of scene changes, it is reversed. See more »
Nice Dark comedy ,, the drama overpowered the comedy in a few parts of the movie but the whole thing worked out just okay with a bit of unexpected thrill.
Loved the story since i'v seen the trailer but the movie started just a little bit slow like they've needed 35 minutes to build up to the main plot of a 80 minutes movie !! well after that it peaked to the level i expected, As i thought they would give a little unpredictable surprise to make it look different than what they revealed in the trailer, Well there were a bunch of them,,The last 20 minutes had A Boom Boom. ;)
So the the idea is fresh, new for me, the storyline gets really good after the first half of the movie .. and it surprisingly got thrilling in a way , i gotta be honest thou the Dark Comedy side seemed to be overpowered by the Drama one in some minutes,, Apart from the dorky innocent tense comic acting (which i sorta liked) by "Patrick Wilson" i didn't see any :P but again that was the whole idea and it worked out nicely after the middle of the movie ... maybe it was just me because i really wanted to watch a pure comedy movie ;)
The cast is nice ,, i love "Katherine Heigl" i mean she's so HOT and yeah talented too ;D, her role here didn't give her more of her funny side but she engaged well in the character ... "Patrick Wilson" also did a good job, the appearance of "James Belushi" was also cool ;)
Overall the movie worked out just fine,, and it was enjoyable on an bit above average.
