5.0 out of 5 stars ROSEANNE IS A LAUGH RIOT November 29, 2005
This has to be one of my favorite movies from the 80's. Watch out, when Ruth Patchett (played by the queen of comedy Roseanne) gets ticked off she can cause a lot of damage (and laughs!!!)!! Her worthless excuse of a husband Bob (Ed Begley Jr.) is at the center of Ruth's rage in this comedy about revenge. Roseanne's character learns that she is better than whatever her no-good husband thinks of her, and she sets out to prove him wrong and learns how to start a new life along the way. Meryl Streep's (Mary Fisher) character is totally over-the-top and the perfect addition to this already campy classic. Mary Fisher is a cross between Joan Crawford and Jackie Collins.

There are so many funny scenes in this movie. Perhaps the funniest is when Bob drives Ruth home from the party in the beginning of the film. Poor Ruth has to sit in the back seat of their two-door car while Mary Fisher sits in the front next to her husband! And the bum doesn't even have the common decency to drive Ruth to the door, instead dropping her off a block away from the house! It was also a hoot when Ruth drops off the kids (Andy & Nicolette) at Miss Fisher's because "the children would like to see their father." And of course we can't forget Mary Fisher's kooky mother. Sylvia Mills plays the senior Mrs. Fisher with such comedy and finesse; Mary Fisher's mother almost takes as much joy out of wrecking Mary's perfect lifestyle as Ruth does, almost! And finally, I can't leave out the wonderful character Hooper played by Linda Hunt. Hooper is a dowdy old nurse-maid that helps Ruth start the business Vesta Rose for the harried and hopeless women of New York.

4.0 out of 5 stars The grass isn't always greener... July 6, 2005
She-Devil a great dark comedy about revenge. BoB (Ed Begley Jr.) is bored of his blah wife who just can't seem to do anything he decides to have an affair with romance novelist Mary Fisher (Meryl Streep). He leaves suburbia, his kids and wife, so Ruth (Roseanne) decides to show him how bad life can really be. After burning down the house, dumping the kids at the pretty pink palace by the sea and breaking Mary Fisher's mom out of a nursing home, she and a friend start an employment agency to help women in similar situations. By placing the right women in the right jobs, Bob soon learns hell hath no fury like a woman scorned when he ends up with nothing and no one, all because he crossed the wrong woman.

A Kid's Review
She-Devil is among the few dark comedies that gained popularity in the late 80's early 90's period. It has been closely associated with such classics as Zemeckis' Death Becomes Her and War Of The Roses starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny Devito). She Devil is based on a novel by the same name. Roseanne Barr stars as the irrepressible Ruth Patchett, Ed Begley Jr as her cheating husband and a delightful Meryl Streep as his mistress romance novelist Mary Fisher. The captivating premise revolves around Ruth's plot to exact revenge on her unfaithful husband. We are generally sympathetic with her (or at least I was when I saw the film) because she truly does not deserve such a fallible and inconsiderate husband especially after being good to him and raising his children. Roseanne steals the show as she takes revenge step by step straight out of her list of wicked deeds. The script and dialogue is witty and packed with humor. Memorable characters further enhance this black comedy, characters such as Mary Fisher's elderly mother who dislikes her daughter for selfishly shutting her out of her life and putting her in the care of an old folks home to which she later avenges by blabbing to a sleazy tabloid that Mary Fisher was a promiscious woman. Ed Begley Jr. is quite good as the cheating husband who later tires of living with his mistress/mother to his kids replacement Mary Fisher and takes on a new mistress his own office secretary. He is involved in fraudulent scams and eventually Ruth makes it possible for him to be imprisoned. He does seem to have learned his lesson by the end of the film. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars wacky comedy July 1, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Roseanne Barr and Meryl Streep battle it out in the wacky comedy SHE-DEVIL.
Mary Fisher (Streep) is a romance novelist who lives in a pink palace by the sea. Ruth Patchett (Barr) is a frumpy housewife with a bad attitude. They have one thing in common - Bob( Ed Begley Jr) - Mary's lover and Ruth's husband!
Ruth decides to get even with her louse of a spouse, so she blows up the house, and frames Bob for embezzlement. Along the way Ruth also digs up Mary's mother in a decaying nursing home, and decides a "family reunion" is needed....!
Based on the novel "The Life and Loves of the She-Devil" by Fay Weldon, this is a charming film. If you loved DEATH BECOMES HER you will flip over SHE-DEVIL.
Also starring Linda Hunt and Sylvia Miles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underated Comedy Classic!! December 5, 2005
This movie deserves so much more credit than it has received in the past. I hope alot of new Roseanne fans will take the time to check out this movie. Meryl Streep is amazingly talented as a comedic actress...Just watch this movie and see. Roseanne is Vesta Rose. A nice lady who has always let the world step all over her. Sometimes when you push people too far they may have a sneaky way settling the score. She-Devil is fantastic.
