Pervez A H She obviously didn't watch "Narcos" all she'd to do was use "Chicken wire" and body would've been fish food however she did cross the line and deserve what she got hope she burns in hell after she if ever she cones out 102 guy's don't feel sorry fir her she took a human life however low life he was. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‘must watch 10 out of 10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Good inspired by true events story. Yeah I think sheโ€™s guilty recommended from James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas July 21, 2023. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/20/23 Full Review Melody W I've read the book and seen a few documentaries and this movie is wrong in so many instances. Wasted $1.99 renting it. Definitely don't recommend! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/26/23 Full Review dan b I liked it because it was true Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review A. D I know it is a movie based on an actual event. I watched the 20/20 program on this case. I watched a YouTube panel discussion by body language experts. I watched the body language panel because I was unsure about her having really done the murder. After I saw the 20/20 episode, I was informed. This beginning of the movie makes it sound like the husband was the bad guy. In actuality, she was not a victim. She began the affair while pregnant with her second son, not after, as depicted in this movie. So if you want to just enjoy the movie, do not watch any of the crime shows about this murder or listen to the body language panel about it. The section leading up to the arrest and post-arrest improved from the beginning section of the movie. Peace Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews
