I rarely write reviews but I feel obligated to give one because it was the reviews that I gave this movie a chance.
First of all, what twist? The plot was so obvious and predictable. I was not surprised whatsoever at any point of the movie. Second, the story was not realistic in my opinion. The characters behave in a stupid way most of the time which made it hard for me to associate with any of them. The husband is way too unsupportive and still portrayed to be a good one at the end.
So, in short, if you enjoy only very well written and directed, realistic movies with real twists, stay away from this one!
