The casting is a real coup, with Barr going her everywoman TV persona one better by breaking the big screen heroine mold, and Streep blowing away any notion that she can't be funny.
Meryl Streep is divine in this misguided guilty pleasure
Misses the savage satire of Fay Weldon's novel.
Proof that Roseanne sold her soul for fame.
A so-so entry in the knee-em-in-the-nuts genre.
It absolutely doesn't work.
Just as big of a surprise that Streep and Barr are working together, is the fact that this is mildly entertaining.
A flop at the time of it's release, but actually a very good and funny female revenge fantasy from the seriously underrated director Susan Seidelman.
I absolutely loved this movie! Roseanne has never been as entertaining and mischievous as she is in this. If you loved her show, you ought to see it. The rest of the cast is just perfect. This film is hilarious and heartfelt at the same time. We identify and sympathize with Ruth, she's just an ordinary woman like the rest of us, but she has guts too. I highly recommend it, it's a lot of fun.
An enjoyable surprise, having expected this to be total trash. Meryl Streep played her role really well as the husband stealing, spoilt, Neurotic. This film would bring many a smile to anyone who could relate to the Woman Scorned scenario and the list and the cool demeanour of Ruth (Roseanne) was proof of Revenge being a dish best served cold.
Meryl Streep owns the Knowledge to play the roles of "Divas" or wannabe. However Roseanne was really funny in this Movie. The Part where she lives her house burning back was really funny.
A dismally unfunny rendering of Fay Weldon's novel of a wife taking revenge on her departed husband and his lover.
