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 »

"Perception is everything." Don Champagne (Wilson) has the perfect life, at least it looks that way to everyone else. He runs a car dealership with his friend and is married to Mona (Heigle). She wants everything in her life to be perfect and will stop at nothing to make sure it is. Perfection begins to waver when Don hires a new saleswoman. This is a funny but very dark comedy. I enjoyed it but this is not a movie for everyone. From everything I have heard about Katherine Heigle in the news this seems like the perfect part for her. There really isn't a whole lot to say about this movie other than that. If you like dark comedies like Tucker and Dale or Very Bad Things you will like this. The movie isn't all that original and the cast really makes it better than it is. Overall, if you are a fan of dark comedies this is worth seeing. If you offend easy I would avoid this. I give it a B.
