The movie was filmed in New York in the spring and summer 1989, which was during the first season break of Roseanne Barr's popular ABC television sitcom Roseanne (1988) See more »
In the opening scenes, when Roseanne is trying on the gold and black mini dress, she turns 3/4 to the camera and we hear the dress's zip and she looks satisfied at finally getting it to zip up. But in the mirror on the left, you can see that the dress is still half-unzipped and her bra is still showing as much as before. See more »
Ute, where are you going?
I took this job because I only had to cook and clean for one person and one dog. Then I get the mother, the lover, his kids and their dog. Miss Fisher, up with this bullshit I will not put. I quit!

In a nutshell-this is another first wives club and fans of that movie will probebly appreciate this one which actually cam eout quite a bit before fwc. It's another woman scorned movie but I enjoyed it actually a bit more then wives club due to the fact it didn't drag. First wives club though it was the ultimate "watch in a group of women movie" had some moments where my attention wandered. This was very much a caricature movie but it was good dark comedy and boy was it funny to see Meryl in a role like this!
