This does not bode well for horrible people

Some laugh out loud moment, yes the ending was a bit weak. Made ever so slightly uncomfortable by my husband's comments of "I have given it some thought, I need a bigger wood chipper" If nobody hears from me again, please make sure he takes good care of my horses.

And they did.

What a curious little picture to just discover on amazon prime.

It's funny how I found this just after watching the movie "The Lie" which handled a similar concept a lot more seriously (Canadian movie too). This movie is a great example of how Americans can use humor in any situation to make it palatable and engaging.

It's a simple set up: someone gets killed; they all cover it up. The emotional and physical struggle to do this is all part of the journey. It's never trite or sanctimonious but it ticks all the boxes it needs to to make sense.

The "victim" is totally unsympathetic while still not interesting enough to leave a big hole in the movie and the process was pretty tense but never stressfully so.

There's a movie called "A young man with high potential" which (again) is like this but not funny. Excellent film...

Not for everyone but I just frickin' admire how this movie just went there.

Take it easy

"Let's kill Ward's Wife" is a dark comedy, dealing with the young father Ward, whose wife is holding him under strict control. Again and again he has to cancel his friends, who jokingly begin to think about ways to let her disappear. When she catches one of the friends in a rather delicate situation, things spiral out of control and she gets killed. What now?

The film surely is not a masterpiece, it doesn't tell a big story, neither is it unbelievably clever or anything alike. But it creates an interesting plot, is fun to watch and in all its absurdity entertaining. A bit like in "Arsenic and Old Lace" people just react fully different from what one would expect and the one character who actually shows himself traumatized is a nice mirror of how strange everyone is handling the situation. I can understand that some might be disappointed but personally I really enjoyed this small but nice piece of dark humor.

All in all you should really give it a try. Some of the ratings here and from critics appear a bit unfair to me. If you don't expect this to be a big step in cinema but just a decent, small film, I'm quite sure you won't get disappointed.
