Movie Info

Into the small law offices of unlucky-in-love Charlotte St. John stumbles a handsome stranger, bloodied and battered, suffering amnesia. The good Samaritan, she cares for him, nurses him to health ... and falls hard for this mysterious angel. He reciprocates -- and good love finally finds Charlotte. But not for long, for their brief love affair hits the rocks when his identity is uncovered. Together they learn to their heartbreaking disappointment that he's already married ... twice. That's right, he's an amnesiac who forgot his was a bigamist. Though initially crushed that her perfect hero is just another perfect schmuck, Charlotte soon agrees to defend him against the bigamy charges, arguing that his injury has wiped out his former personality. In mounting her defense, she investigates his past ... and discovers that his vengeful wives may have uncovered his dirty bigamist secret months before -- and secretly plotted his violent downfall.

    I watched this because I liked Molly in Breakfast Club. I thought she did a good job in "The Wives He Forgot". The movie runs its course, but there is some doubt at the end.

    I'm not a big fan of Molly Ringwald...I don't think she's a very good actress. It was definitely a hokey movie, but it was entertaining enough to sit through.

    Not bad for a tv movie - had a reasonable twist at the end, although my husband reckons he could see it coming a mile off, I actually couldn't (maybe it just caught me on a bad day!). Molly Ringwald, as seems to be the case generally these days, is way better than the material - I think with anyone else in the role it would have been a three star movie, if that. She puts in a really likable performance in this one, making it seem a better film than it actually is.
