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
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 »

A hybrid between romantic comedy and slasher film
This film tells the story of a furniture salesman who seems to have the perfect suburban life. He has an affair with an employee, and his life and his wife goes awfully wrong.
I thought "Home Sweet Hell" was a romantic comedy, but it turns out it's actually a new hybrid of romantic comedy slasher! Katherine Heigl plays an obsessional turns psychopathic wife, breaking her run as the new queen of romantic comedy. She looks so different from her other films, she conveys the stone cold and ruthless attitude required for the role. Patrick Wilson is great as a helpless husband. The whole film is quite funny, despite some gruesome scenes not typically in a romantic comedy. Overall, I enjoyed watching "Home Sweet Hell".
