4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect trio in bizarre and wonderful dark comedy
Falling actress Madeline Ashton (Streep) learns of a secret potion that will regenerate her beauty whilst her long term enemy Helen (Hawn) looks set to steal her husband

Black comedies are some weird and wonderful creations. The Coen brothers are creative masters at such a genre, whether depicting the nature of the government in Burn after Reading or revealing...

3.0 out of 5 stars funny black comedy
A terrific black comedy that skewers the vanity and lengths people go to staying young. Merle Streep and Goldie Hawn play friends/rivals through life and Ms. Streep steals Bruce Willis's character from Goldie. Goldie goes into a deep depression made better by terrific makeup work. Time passes and Goldie is now slim and successful while Ms. Streep's character is the...

4.0 out of 5 stars "I can see right through you!", 4 Sept. 2007
By 
bernie "xyzzy" (Arlington, Texas) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
Rivalry between two women (Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn) over a doctor/undertaker (Bruce Willis) leads to extreme measures. They take an elixir that maintains beauty forever with some minor side effects (and a belated warning by scantily clad Isabella Rossellini).

One woman becomes very twisted, the other holier than thou.
Who will he choose?

The great acting and good special effects will hold your attention. One must be prepared to suspend reality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film but a disappointing DVD, 3 Oct. 2007

This review is from: Death Becomes Her [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
This is one of my favourite films. The cast are obviously enjoying being in it as well which makes it nice to watch. There's some wonderful barbed dialogue and the performances are (while maybe a little broad at times) excellent. The reason this gets 4 stars and not 5 is the DVD itself.

Firstly it's not even anamorphic! It's only a bare bones release. There are a lot of deleted scenes from the film (including an entire subplot featuring Tracey Ullmann) that were cut out! In fact if you look up the trailer (youtube etc) for the film some of these scenes can be seen. Making it extremely frustrating that they are not included here.

In this world of "Special Editions" and constantly repackaged DVD's can't somebody at the marketing department suggest a re-release of "Death Becomes Her"?

Another movie impossible to find in the US... particularly in wide screen format! A bit silly at times but fun and clever for us big Bruce Willis fans. Goldie and Meryl draw you into their tit-for-tat relationship with humor and irony.

Seriously, watch this film.
It is so funny, original comedy with scenes that every woman can relate too.
But also a thriller with magic and soft violence.
It is an old film that if released today would still be loved.

DVD arrived in time however the quality of the DVD was far from what I expected! Worse than VHS quality! Didn't look like a copy from the packaging but the quality definitely did.
