"TILL MURDER DO US PART" IS SAME MOVIE AS "A WOMAN SCORNED"

"The movie "Till Murder Do Us Part" is the same movie as "Betty Broderick: A Woman Scorned" Both are for sale on Amazon.com.
I guess "Till Murder Do Us Part" was released first on DVD and VHS. "A Woman Scorned" is only on DVD, which, by the way, consists of two movies, a total of 3 hours in all: "A Woman Scorned" and "Her Final Fury".
I recommend this movie under either title. It is a very interesting true story, which the Lifetime Channel shows on occasion. I enjoyed it so much watching Lifetime that I wanted to purchase a copy for my own personal movie collection.

"Agree or disagree with Betty Broderick, this story is fascinating. Just like with the film "Fatal Attraction", it struck a chord with many women and fear into many men. Betty Broderick was raised to be a good Catholic wife who sacrificed for her husband and children. When Dan Broderick stood in a church and promised to love and cherish her forever, she believed him. However, to Dan, forever meant about 20 years. Then he went out and bought the required midlife crisis car -- a red convertible. And got himself a slutty 20-year-old to sleep with.
When Betty confronts him, he denies it, saying she's crazy. Finally, though, Dan decides he's having more fun with the ho and dumps his wife. But despite Betty having contributed to his professional success, he doesn't want to share 50/50. People may say, "What's she complaining about? She was getting $10,000/month!" But Dan was making like $100,000/month. Besides that, Betty's dreams of this successful life were taken from her. Not just her husband. She lost her prestige in the community, she was ostracized by their rich friends -- not invited to events/ parties/dinners. Dan took the new wife on vacations, parties, kids' soccer games. He basically cut her out of the photo and inserted wifey No. 2. And Betty simply lost it. She could not accept that she got royally screwed by Dan. Every minute of the day was consumed by her hatred of Dan and this skank. And she did what she had to do. I'm not saying it was right, but I UNDERSTAND. As she fought with Dan about her alimony and Dan was saying, "What? What do you want from me Betty?!" She seethed and said, "You OWE me!" For all the years of struggle, for everything she did for the family -- this life was supposed to be her reward and HE OWED HER.
Part One of the movie deals with life up to the murder and the first trial. Betty is shown in a much more sympathetic light. Part Two deals with the second trial and conviction and Betty is portrayed much worse. However, it appears to be an honest portrayal -- warts and all. Anyone who enjoys the Lifetime TV movies such as "Beauty's Revenge" and "A Mother's Justice" will enjoy this DVD."

"I thought Meredith Baxter's acting in this true-life story film was exceptional ! Baxter had to take on all of Betty's moods and her behavioral changes and then display them realistically . I certainly do not agree with the murderous actions Betty took and she diffinately developed a stalker/O.C.D. mentality just for revenge . The whole story was sad . The children were left without a father and basically without a mother because of her unbalanced reaction. I would have given Meredith Baxter an Emmy for this one ... It was a very good drama .M.A.Fiske. email@example.com"

"Somebody in the review comment said this movie wasn't long enough. They must have not purchased the version I purchased from Amazon, wich was a total of 193 minutes long on a DVD! The movie was wonderful! Meredith Baxter was an excellent portrayal of Betty Brodrick, as I did follow the true story of it on Court TV. I must say, this is one of my favorite movies! Buy the movie- not the compressed version, the 193 minute version, so you can see the movie in it's entirety. It is definately worth it, and what a good deal Amazon has to offer on it! I got my DVD for under $10!!!"
