After all these years it’s still a great comedy, awesome cast and some unique sarcasm. Check the bad guys; fun and scary.

Remember the 1994 film dark comedy "Serial Mom"? Likewise, here is another exaggerated script on suburban life that goes VERY, VERY wrong, north of hell. For Katherine Heigl fans, with a twisted sense of humor and mature audience. BTW, enough horror in it for Halloween.

I think this is supposed to be a comedy, but it's really....not.

This was pretty gory but based off of the preview (which I saw while watching Voices with Ryan Reynolds) I expected no less. Despite the fact that I am not a big Katherine Heigl fan I really enjoyed her in this role. If you are a fan of gory, darkly humored movies I think this movie is worth a try.

Not sure what I was expecting with this movie. Seemed a little "Gone Girl' style with a lot more humour incorporated but left me really confused at the end. If you can handle funny, excessive violence, then this may take your fancy.

Serious eye candy here. Jordana Brewster steals the picture. Katherine Heigl is beautiful and brutal. Not for the squeamish.

I was pleasantly surprised. I thought this was really good. While it was very funny at times, it was also extremely tense at the same time. The plot definitely keeps you guessing as it veers off into surprising turns. Not your standard Hollywood predictability. That it keeps you guessing is to its credit as a dark comedy. Heigl was amazing !!Especially in one scene where her husband is confessing and she is rubbing lotion on her hands. Lots of twists and great performances by all. Reminded me of "War of the Roses". My only issue with it was that the ending was a little soft.
This all being said I would not recommend it for anyone under17 as it has explicit sex scenes and several gory dismember acts.

We're gonna achieve our goals, Don... because we have standards and strategy. Now, focus!

We will have sex on the 9th... as scheduled. Until then you can take care of yourself.

Mona, we're married. We are supposed to be a little kinky. We're supposed to have sex more than six times a year!
-Well, if you wouldn't pressure me...
I am a man, Mona! I have needs! You obviously do not!
===
Do you care for me?
-More than the moon and the stars.
That's really good to know.

How much do you love me? How much do you care? Spare me no details, my sweet

Mona made me do it!
===
Do not get weak, Don! This tramp is trying to tear apart our family. How dare you not try to fight for that.
- hat's not what I meant.
This is about our legacy.
-Are you sure there's no other way?
There is only ever my way.

You're gonna need to pick up some more trash bags from Costco tomorrow. I'd write it down for you, but I'm just covered in that girl. Just distasteful. FYI, I'm hiring the next employee. Now, grab a shovel. We need to fertilize the garden with your hooker.

To wives and sweethearts. May they never meet.

I will not put myself through that. What would our friends think? What would the community think? We'd be the laughingstock of this entire city.

That wife was not a very good person.
===
I love you, Don.
-I love you too.
But if you ever talk to me like that again... I will end you.

We don't want Mona to find out.

I have a genetic mitral valve prolapse. I can't even drink coffee.

I'm just a furniture salesman.
-You are so much more than just a furniture salesman, Don. You are my husband. You are the father of my children.

We have goals, we have a family... and we're not gonna let a little infidelity get in the way of that. It's gonna take a little time to heal...but ultimately we'll be better partners because of it.
