User reviews



Tom Selleck did a wonderful job of playing the part of Jack, the divorce lawyer. He showed a very emotional side of himself and played the roll very convincingly and with ease. The movie provided insight into how petty situations can become during a divorce. The scene with the fight over a little wooden horse was an awaking of how people react under the pressure of trying to get their fare share of property. Hopefully, Divorce Wars will one day be out on DVD.

Jane Curtain did an excellent job, as well. She and Tom Selleck played off of each other well and were a convincing couple of whom should not have been married.


Clearly different women are willing to put up with different behaviour from hubby. This film takes a look at some of the ways. There are respectable performances all around as the story takes place against a background of the very successful and busy divorce lawyer's work in court, which keeps him away from home, children and wife. Under the circumstance that the wife comes from a wealthy family, her dissatisfactions with her marriage may make her seem like a spoiled brat. Which, as a matter of fact, she is. Hubby's attitude is not all that endearing either, especially when he takes up with a little chippy, who is also a newly minted lawyer. Hardly any of the people, except "ol' Max", are folks you can be expected to empathise with. Jane Çurtin, Joan Bennett and Tom Selleck limn their various characters very well. If you are a fan of Lilliam Hellmann's work, you might almost suspect this film derives from some of her work, but apparently this is not the case.
