“…the raw material for a really good movie was there. Fay Weldon’s novel “The Life and Loves of a She-Devil” previously spawned a superior 1986 British TV miniseries. The story’s premise, a spurned housewife exacts extremely crafty revenge on faithless husband and rich bimbo lover, is the kind of deliciously nasty fantasy anyone can relate to.” ~ Steve Simels | EW.com | July 6, 1990
