For 15 years, Ellen Farris (Marg Helgenberger) has been seeking answers as to the cause of her rapidly deteriorating health.

Audience Reviews for Lethal Vows

This was a great TV movie. I didn't realise until the end that it was based on a true story - that makes it even more terrifying. I hated that husband. John Ritter was really the right person to play him - just looking at his face made me angry. So wanted him to get what was coming to him. Sadly I am finding some of these TV movies better than new release stuff at the cinema. Whether that's me getting old, or the quality of what is released these days, hard to say.

It's terrible how disgusting and horrible some people are. To suffer unnecessarily all those years because someone you loved had poisoned you...it's just unimaginable. John Ritter is not one of my favorite actors, but he was very fitting for this role.

Another good old fashioned Lifetime movie. This a story about this woman who had this strange illness for like 14 years. Then all of of a sudden her ex husbands new wife comes down with the same illness and has the same symptoms she has had. She grows closer to her ex husbands new wife because they share the same illness. Then her ex husbands new wife dies. Her ex husband rushes the doctors at the hospital and gets his 2nd wife cremated rather fast. This makes his first wife rather suspicious. His 2nd wife was just 38 years old and died of something unknown and the first wife wonders why her ex-husband didn't give the doctors more time on the autopsy. She then becomes suspicious of her ex husband and starts to remember things from the past that start to make her suspect her ex husband of murder. This is a very good movie overall. It is based on a true story which makes it even more eerie. John Ritter portrays a very evil and despicable madman in this movie. Worth the watch.
