She-Devil > Wiki


Someone stole her husband...and now there's hell to pay! Roseanne Barr puts a hilarious twist on the domestic goddess persona that made her a star, and Meryl Streep makes you marvel at [her] real comic witchcraft (Newsweek). She-Devil is a film that doesn't stop at mild-mannered prankster revengeit's a funny Fatal Attraction on steroids, with attitude, that's gone bad! Meet Mary Fisher (Streep). She's got it all: a cliff-side villa overlooking the ocean, a wholly satisfying career as a romance novelist...and Ruth Patchett's husband. And when Ruth (Barr) discovers that her social-climbing spouse (Ed Begley, Jr.) has been spending his time at Mary's pink-and-white-monstrosity-by-the-sea, she doesn't just vow to get him back...she vows to get even! Setting out todestroy his business accountsas well as Mary's precious reputation and careerRuth proves the old adage about a woman scornedby delivering up a husband nearly scorched!
