Amerikaanse verfilming uit 1989 door Susan Seidelman van de bestseller 'The life and loves of a she-devil' (Leven en liefdes van een duivelin) van Fay Weldon, de Britse literaire grootmoeder van het feminisme. In deze zwarte komedie neemt een door Roseanne Barr gespeelde huisvrouw wraak op haar overspelige echtgenoot (Ed Begley jr.) en succesvolle minnares (Meryl Streep). Hans Kroon (Trouw 17-6-1999): '[De film] kreeg veel lof en werd even hard verguisd, al naar gelang waardering voor de wijze waarop Seidelman is omgegaan met de komische talenten van Streep en Barr.' De dvd-video bevat geen extra's.
