A Woman Scorned : The Betty Broderick Story  After sixteen years of marriage and four children, Betty Broderick’s high-powered attorney husband decides to leave her for a younger woman with whom he’s been having an affair. Hurt by his betrayal and feeling helpless against his legal expertise, Betty begins a campaign of vandalism and verbal assault. Her rage consumes her and ultimately leads to a terrible and violent act.

Betty Broderick should never get out of prison.

A Woman Scorned : The Betty Broderick Story  If this movie is supposed to make a person have sympathy for Betty Broderick it didn’t make me feel sorry for her.

Should have Dan cheated on her, no, but she had no right to murder her ex-husband and his new wife Linda.

I read where Betty said once that she didn’t go there to kill them but she was going to shoot herself in front of them. I don’t believe her. Was the shooting an accident and was pulling the phone cord out of the wall an accident? Was calling her friend and saying I finally shot him an accident too? Only to someone who wants to make a killer into a victim.

Betty wouldn’t listen to her attorneys which is why probably none wanted to take her case. California is a big state I’m sure she could have found a excellent attorney in Los Angeles who would have loved to take her case and take Dan to the cleaners. That’s what he deserved but not to be murdered.

All she did was focus on herself with no regards to her kids. She stalked, harassed, and threatened her ex and his wife as if that would somehow solve her problem. All it did was put her in prison where she belongs.

Superb performance in a compelling film

Meredith Baxter gives a superb performance in this film and its sequel. She captures the cold narcissism of Betty Broderick and manages to play scenes of rage in a surprisingly subtle manner. For example, in the scene in which Betty trashes her ex-husband’s house, Meredith approaches the destruction with great nonchalance, which is ultimately more frightening than if she had played it full-on. She taps into the smugness and sense of entitlement that were strong components of Betty Broderick’s personality and allowed her to murder two people in cold blood.
