Movie of the Week - The War of the Roses (1989)

The trio of Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito worked so well for Romancing the Stone and it's follow up Jewel of the Nile that they decided to join forces again and make this 1989 dark comedy.

The War of the Roses is so funny, because it is so true. There are ways this troubled couple relate to each other that almost any married couple in the world can sympathize. There are classic scenes throughout that will stick in your memory forever.

Even though the Indiana Jones-like Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile get more attention for this trio of actors, it is this movie that is by far the more superior film.

Kudos to Danny DeVito for directing this film. It was an underrated job of directing. Go rent this film and thank me later.

I'll be typin' at ya later,
