what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie attempts to find dark humor in the premise that murder is a convenient option for women who've been the victims of offensive male behavior. Most men are portrayed as empty-headed, leering sexual predators, while the women are either angrily amoral, wide-eyed victims, or both. Expect plenty of violence, including a car crashing and burning, a woman being pummeled by her husband, and a dentist stabbed by his assistant, though all are portrayed in a darkly comedic manner. Characters also swear ("f--k," "s--t," "whore," etc.) and smoke, and some drive drunk.

"It was a movie that I watched to pass the time. Plus I like Jennifer Coolidge. I think she's a riot. I liked her in this too. I have a hard time liking Heather Graham in movies. It's not that she's a bad actress, oh wait, yes she is. But it's also that she comes off, how do I say this kindly... a flake. I think that's how to describe her best. I just can't take her serious in anything she does. She annoys me and just can not act. I like Amber Heard. I don't know what she's doing in this movie, but her and Coolidge made this watchable. The script is bad, most of the acting is bad, and the maybe with a better directing and writing this could have been something worth watching again."
