Good points:
You always get your money's worth with Bette Davis in a film and this one is certainly no exception! Bette rules the roost in this black comedy/drama as the one-eyed, eye patch wearing matriarch, who uses the opportunity of her wedding anniversary to tell her relatives and in-laws - her nearest but certainly not so dearest - exactly what she thinks of them! There is no back-stabbing here, she goes straight for the jugular, firing off a volley of acid-tongued, barbed remarks to one and all. Razor-sharp wit, caustic comments, her tongue is honed to perfection, reminding everyone how their lives have amounted to nothing and basically, how the world would be a better place without them. There are some sensitive subjects, which are handled in a very insensitive way, so be warned. Over-the-top? Yes! Camp? Yes! Bette is clearly enjoying herself here and you could be forgiven for thinking that she has been given carte blanche to say precisely what she wants to the other characters! There are some lighter, genuinely funny moments, such as the son who has a fetish for women's underwear and is seen giving in to the compulsion to remove them from people's washing lines! However, Bette's character revels in the misfortunes and downfall of others, in what some may find an offensive way, as the film ventures into darker territory. If the plight of others gives you enjoyment, then this film is for you. If not, then you may find it a bit tasteless in places. For those of you who have been wanting a showdown with family members but didn't know how to go about it, then this may give you the tips and courage you needed!
Bad points:
Erm....none really, unless of course you don't like Bette Davis, in which case you won't enjoy this.
