: : : The Rich Man's Wife

Story

One of Halle Berry's first star vehicles, The Rich Man's Wife has a quirky, unearned twist for an ending, but everything else is pretty obvious. So obvious, it's possible to review it like this: <blockquote> See Halle.
Halle is a wife.
See Halle's husband.
The husband is mean.
See the barfly.
Halle tells the barfly how she feels.
The barfly is not well.
The barfly kills Halle's husband.
The barfly tricks Halle.
Extort. Extort. Extort.
Halle has to run.
Halle has to fight.
Halle has to carry this movie.
Act, Halle! Act!
Halle has no help.
Plot, people! Plot! </blockquote> And, no, even though it's rated R, she keeps her clothes on. -- Keith Simanton
