If Looks and Beauty can kill .. you would die laughing to this
on 18 May 2017
This is one of the best comedies of the 1990's and it is now lived up to the true classic that foretells every woman's nightmare and every man's horror when the Witch Queen of full Beauty wants to stay as the Snow White.
Madeline Ashton is a washed up Actress (played marvellously by the versatile Oscar winner and the best actress in show business according to critics and audience is Meryl Streep) and when her Childhood rival Helen Sharp (Goldie Hawn) brings in Fiancé Dr Ernest Menville (Bruce Willis) and swiftly before Helen can say "smiley faces", Madeline takes Ernest away and betrothed, then Helen plots revenge that is better than murder, and soon Madeline encounters the mysterious Mr Chagall and recommends the answer to faded flower Madeline's wishes of ageless Beautiful enchantress and witch Elesle Van Rhuman (Isabella Rossellini). Then as two women meet, there deepest secret is revealed.
This is one of the top ten best dark comedies you will ever see and the cast are in fine form, you will see two of the most beautiful, immoral, greedy, vain women fighting as they knock each other down literally. The script is packed with one-liners that are viciously sarcastic but witty and reflect symbolism of ageing. Rossellini that represents youth as three hunky helpers with those "popular" names and when she calls them they "awake"
It is a brilliant comedy which is rarely made anymore back when the days are so carefree, Both Actresses Streep and Hawn are brilliant and gorgeous, their comedy timing is genius and there is no dull moment.
Go watch it because it is so much fun and forget a few negative sensitivity bruised reviews
