Fascinating tragedy - Meredith Baxter is great
True life murder stories are always the best and this is one of the best minis made of a true life murder. Whoever you feel sympathy for this is just superb from start to finish.
The screenplay is balanced and detailed - not biased towards one side or another. Overall you get a picture of a very real American tragedy where everyone loses in the end. You feel for Betty the terrible injustice of being dumped for a younger model after putting her husband Dan through medical and law school and raising 4 kids. You also feel Betty over reacted and got out of control but yet understand her frustration.
Casting is superb. Meredith acts very well - the tension and anger that she shows on her face is not too much. Who else could play the cheating hubby as well as the then not old Stephen Collins? The actress who plays Linda the 2nd wife is good too - really smug. Pace and direction are great and what they choose to show is fascinating. Dialog is carefully chosen and not melodramatic.
And there are lessons to be learned too - for the man who is thinking of leaving his wife for a younger model and for the wife on how it might just be better to move on.
This is a must see.

Outstanding Movie and Outstanding Acting
Betty Broderick worked hard as a wife, and Mother, and got a raw deal when her husband of 16 years, Dan, left her for his young, pretty, secretary (Linda). He finally asked for a divorce, and this was the beginning of the end. A betrayed Betty went on the war path, and made Dan's life miserable, which led to her shooting and killing him, and his new bride, Linda. She worked hard for years supporting Dan when he was in law school, and raised their 4 children as well. Excellently portrayed by Meredith Baxter, this movie was fabulous. Part II, her Final Fury, the last chapter was also an excellent movie!
