Bitter divorce , real bitter, no insanely bitter - The War of the Roses review by PT

Spoiler Alert
03/09/2017

This film is described as a drama and dark comedy. That is so apt as there are some humorous moments in an intense love hate relationship. I say love hate relationship because Michael Douglas never loses his love for Kathleen Turner even during their turbulent divorce demands. Conversely, Turner has gone too far, she wants out and is superb as the estranged wife, believe me hell have no fury like Barbara Rose, and the film shows Turner at her wonderful best.

Douglas and Devito put in their usual good performances but the film belongs to Kathleen Turner as the woman you DO NOT want to fall out of love with you.

Golden Oldie - The War of the Roses review by NC

Spoiler Alert
26/05/2019

Quite an old film now, but still quite up to date in content. De Vito commentates throughout, and holds a good progression. Managed to keep more interest than many of the modern films, and no computer graphics!
