I recently purchased the DVD "Betty Broderick: A Woman Scorned", as I have enjoyed this well acted movie on the Lifetime Channel.

To my surprise, this DVD has two movies on it. The first movie of the Betty Broderick story "A Woman Scorned" and the Sequel called "Her Final Fury". A total of 3 hours on this DVD! I also noticed that there is a special section on the DVD where you can see the real Betty Broderick and watch some of her actual testimony at the murder trial. Very interesting. I recommend this DVD highly. This is for anyone who enjoys movies bases on real life incidents, crimes and murders.

OK so i admit it I am a LIFETIME junkie and I make sure that i do not miss this one when it repeats, and it does ALOT. Meredith Baxter gives a convicning performance of "that woman scorned" and although she she murders in cold blood her x husband an his new wife as they lay sleeping peacefully in thier bed in the middle of the night, I still felt sorry for her. The movie starts from thier life together that she helped create while working to put her husband in law school, so that one day that they can have this wonderful life together, as she put it, he took her home, her kids, her friends and her life. Stephen Collins played her husband who after several years of marriage decides he wants a younger more attractive woman an they begin this affair, which is quickly found out by Betty. A lot of women can relate to the loss of love and freedom that Betty Broadwick loses but when i watched this movie withmy husband he could not help but saying "what a bitch she was." I think it depends on which side of the coin you look at it. One of my faviort lifetime movies. Baxter deserved a Emmey for her performace.

I have watched both these "docudramas" over and over again on Lifetime, and I enjoy them every time I see them. The story of Betty Broderick, and her terrible descent into a homicidal rage due in great part to the vicious and foolhardy actions of her estranged husband, is certainly fascinating and great "entertainment." But if you're really interested in Betty's story, and you want a far more balanced retelling of the Broderick marriage than these two movies provide, I highly recommend "Until the Twelfth of Never" by Bella Stumbo. Betty Broderick says that Meredith Baxter never met with her before the movie was made, and that's pretty clear. The first movie, for instance, implies strongly that Dan didn't begin dating his new wife, Linda, until after he had left Betty. A complete lie. They were involved for over two years during his marriage, and his denials to his frantic wife that he was cheating more than contributed to her later breakdown. Read the book for the full story.

I've seen this movie a hundred times; I love it. I am going to order it from Amazon because I want a permanent copy for my huge DVD library.

This movie is a true story. It took place in SanDiego, California.

Betty Broderick started out as a loving wife and mother. She worked hard; worked very hard to put her husband who began as an ER md I believe....through law school. He becomes a renowned lawyer; is very successful and makes them both rich. Betty is finally able to stay at home to raise their 5 kids and the two of them are enjoying the good life. Right about this time, a new young attractive secretary begins employment at Dan Brodericks lawfirm. It doesn't take long for the two of them to become attracted to one another. Betty suspects and goes into a jealous rage, burning all his clothes for starters. One thing leads to another and he divorces her, and marries his secretary.

What the movie does not portray is the fact that Dan Broderick had a habit of screwing around on his wife. In the movie, he is portrayed as the injured party along with his new wife, who in my opinion, is a two bit home wreaker. She knows he is married, and still goes after him. The two are murdered in cold blood by Betty as they slept.

I don't feel they deserved what she did, however, I felt sorry for her as he took everything away from her that he had given her, that she helped to build. They built a great life together, money was no object, and then he throws her away for a younger woman. Granted, she is a spiteful, jealous lunatic that goes way overboard with some of her actions; however, he is no angel in this relationship, and that is the part that the movie does not show.

Men are horrifed and blame BB entirely; women have quite a different opinion. Meredith Baxter is sensational, as is Stephen Collins (this is the second movie Collins portrays a husband murdered in cold blood by his wife; the other was Nick Dunne's excellent book turned movie "The Two Mrs. Grenvilles", the true story of the Woodward family...and even sadder, both children of the couple committed suicide, one on Mother's Day) and it is like watching a train wreck; you can't turn away and you hope maybe this time they will wake up and escape and Betty will recover, but it is not to be.
DB did everything wrong; he, of all people, knew BB and how deeply she was affected by the loss of her children, her husband and her entire lifestyle; usurped by a young, thoughtless girl who took delight in sending her ads for wrinkle cream and weight loss products,
I also read in one book that Kolkena was a bit of a monster toward the children. Neither Dan nor Linda behaved in a way that was wise or sensible; they seemed to deliberately go out of their way to inflame and harass Betty who was already way over the edge; taunting someone already in deep rage and depression is simply not a good idea.
I in NO WAY condone the murder of two people; (I would have much preferred Betty to win by legal means, but it was just not in the stars.) but I absolutely understand WHY she did it. I am also not surprised to notice that the overwhelming majority of those sympathetic to BB are women and those who vilify her are men; it is common and acceptable, even admirable, for men to abandon their wives for younger women; it happens more than we like to think.
Baxter said she was more on BB's side in the first picture; much less in the second. Either way, she turned in great performances in both features.
