Surprisingly good blend of humor and dark noir (by loradunes)
After so many negative reviews, I had to watch. I thought this was really good. While it was very funny at times, it was also extremely tense at the same time. That is unusual. Few can pull this off and if it's not what you're expecting. In fact, it defies expectations if you go by the trailer. This plot definitely keeps you guessing as it veers off into surprising turns. Not your standard Hollywood predictability. That it keeps you guessing is to its credit. Heigl was amazing particularly in that one scene where her husband is confessing and she is rubbing lotion on her hands. Will <more>
definitely watch again. Lots of twists and great performances by all.
Heigl Shines As A Sadist in This Murderous Black Comedy (by zardoz-13)
This scintillating black comedy about a married couple where the wife rules the house is refreshing hilarity. Katherine Heigl is cast as Mona Champagne, a ball-breaking wife who denies her husband sex unless she has scheduled coitus on her calendar. Patrick Wilson is simply brilliant as Heigl's milquetoast husband Don Champagne who runs a furniture store. He hires a drop-dead gorgeous saleslady, Dusty Jordana Brewster of "The Fast and the Furious" , with whom he winds up in an extramarital affair until she informs him that she is pregnant. As it turns out, Dusty works as an <more>
accomplice to two murderous meth head desperadoes, Murphy A.J. Buckley of "Zombie Hamlet" and Freeman Kevin McKidd of "Trainspotting" , and they plan to blackmail Don. In an earlier scene, we saw Murphy and Freeman take advantage of another man who appears to be dead. Anyway, Don's one and only employee before he hired the sexually outgoing Dusty, Les Jim Belushi of "Red Heat" , decided to give her $13-thousand dollars. Don's paranoia about the consequences of his affair prompts him to throw himself on the mercy of Mona, and she concocts a scheme whereby she is administer a Mickey Finn into Dusty's drink when the latter comes to see Don about the money. Naturally, Don is frightened at the prospect of Dusty dying from Mona's drink. Don is marginally relieved when Dusty revives just long enough for Mona to slug her with a hammer. Afterward, Mona dons a gown and cuts Dusty's corpse up with a wood-working appliance. She luxuriates in the splatter of Dusty's blood as she mutilates her lifeless body. Later, she has Don drive her over to Dusty's trailer where she stuffs Dusty decapitated head in the freezer. While she is shoving Dusty's body parts into the fridge, Freeman and a hooker surprise her while she is in the trailer. Mona displays no qualms about taking a samurai sword away from the witless girl and skewering her with it like a shish kebab. The dim-witted Freeman doesn't recognize Mona for a moment and she stabs him repeatedly with a knife until he crumples into his own pool of blood. Murphy is considerably upset when he comes home to the trailer and finds Freeman and the girl sliced and diced in their own reservoirs of blood. Emerging triumphant from her double-murder, Mona warns their gay neighbors about their frisky little dog that encroaches on the Champagne's home. She threatens to kill the little doggie if it ever ventures back onto their premises. One evening while they are preparing to bed, Mona warns Don that she has two deadly knives in her bedside cabinet that she will wield to carve him up if he displeases her. A shocked Don doesn't know what to do until he finds the poor little doggie in their own freezer, and he comes up with a plan to kill his wife that reminded me of the Michael Caine black comedy "A Shock to the Systerm" where he rigged up a booby trap that will electrocute his wife. Don fixes it so that the lightning fixture in their garage will spark up when she switches it on, and the gas leaking from two propane container will ignite. As Don is walking away from a party at their residence, the entire garage blows up.Director Anthony Burns and scenarists Carlo Allen, Ted Elrick, and Tom Lavagnino have created a flawlessly funny R-rated film that benefits from a light touch. Katherine Heigl is both wicked and clever as the domineering dame who emasculates her husband without a qualm. She treats their son with equal contempt but dotes on her intelligent daughter. Watching Heigl relish the prospect of cutting up a corpse is something that you don't always seen this lightweight comic pull off with her tongue-in-cheek. Burns and company never make a error in plotting the downfall of not only Dusty but also Murphy's accomplices. Everything is done with a wink and "Home Sweet Hell" lives up to its title and is a drastic change of pace for Heigl. If you are a Heigl fan, you don't want to miss "Home Sweet Hell."
Don't fret; if you're looking for a dark comedy with genuine laughs and some sinister behaviour, look no further. Its not a true story or a documentary, just a wicked good time. All performances were spot on And, Katherine Heigl is not hard on the eyes. 8.5 rounded up to 9

Funny In All the Wrong Ways (by Necroambulant)
My friend Bryan recommended that I watch Home Sweet Hell, thinking that I would enjoy it. He was absolutely correct. This movie is a twisted little black comedy about a man who cheats on his frigid, OCD wife with a woman he hires to work in his furniture store...a woman he believes is sincerely sweet and genuinely interested in him as a man. The affair goes sideways and his life spirals out of control when his wife becomes aware of the situation. That is as close as I can get to sharing spoilers, aside from the fact that anyone who saw the trailers for the movie is already aware that the wife <more>
informs her unfaithful spouse that the only solution is for him to kill the woman he had been having the affair with...so that part should be no surprise. Patrick Wilson manages to succeed in coming across as the bumbling, panic prone, jackass of a husband without any difficulty, but the true star of this movie is Katherine Heigl. This was a very different role for Katherine Heigl...and she pulls it off exceedingly well. I never really felt one way or another about her as an actress, but I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by her performance here. This was an entertaining movie, no question about that. I like this sort of movie though, this sort of dark humor is just my kind of thing...though I tend to prefer things that go a little bit more perverse and a bit darker in my comedy, this one manages to satisfy.
Wasn't prepared for this twist on the happy, white, middle class, family storyline. I was leaning towards another redundant rom-com Hollywood not N.Y. style and should have paid attention to the knife on the DVD cover. It seems, and there's a bit of assuming in this, that 9 out 10 one star ratings come from females and/or families with little ones surprised upset even that this film turned out to be a bloody dark comedy. Perhaps hitting too close to home that one of there own should have such a nasty disposition. Leaving aside personal taste I was surprised at how well written, <more>
acted and twisty this turned out. Not having any personal connection with an urban/suburban white middle class lifestyle I did not feel violated or offended. We have a super competitive, scrapbook, goal setting obsessive-compulsive mom with an acquiescent former used car, now furniture salesman 2nd & 3rd most ridiculed professions, behind lawyers dad with two polar opposite kids reflecting their parents, of course . Final thought, for the squeamish mentioned way above you can sleep better knowing that, no, the kids did survive those were screams for another .
Underrated....surprisingly entertaining and thrilling! (by cybit-26361)
The chemistry between Heigl and Wilson are excellent to play their roles. It is a dark comedy of an unhappy, sex-deprived husband and his control freak wife that made the whole plot full of twist and turns with sex, drugs and murder not suitable for young children. Brewster was also very sexy in this movie and the antagonists are not to be messed with either.The movie itself was well-written and I wasn't really expecting anything from this movie but it delivered the theme it wants to portray quite well. It kept my attention all throughout the film which Hollywood rarely does these days. <more>
Will I watch it again or recommend it with friends? Oh, definitely! Good job guys!
