"This movie was about a law called "Alienation Of Affection" which shows how to get even with mistresses and philanderers who deliberately break up other peoples marriages. In this case, it was about a secretary named [Lynne Cox], and an insurance salesman named [Joe Hutelmyer], who ended up having an alleged affair for three years. At the insurance company where they worked, all their co-workers found out, and Joe's wife, Dot found out through info of a [P.I.] (suggested by a friend of Dot's), and also from the co-workers. So, as a result, [Joe and Lynne] were thrown out of the company. Dot then sued Joe for divorce. She still wanted to get even with Lynne, so she heard about a law called "Alienation Of Affection", and sued Lynne for that, and prevailed. She became an instant celebrity receiving phone calls for interveiws on talk and news shows. Eventually in the end, she and Joe agreed to share custody of their two boys, and she also worked with her lawyer on helping other people whose marriages were ruined in the same way.
This law is very helpful in getting even with mistresses and philanderers who ruin other peoples lives."

"Totally excellent movie! The actors were right on and the story line can't get any better! Husband cheats on wife with low class husband stealing mistress. Wife knows it was also the mistresses fault in destroying her marrage and sets out to show the world that mistresses/homewreakers should be held accountable for their action too!!!! LOVED IT!!"
