Who Do I Root For?

'Home Sweet Hell' is the epitome of a film that will never be watched by the mainstream. In fact, I'm surprised in these days of the dollar, this film ever got made in the first place. That's not because it's bad, it's just because it's so 'non mainstream' that I'm surprised anyone ever thought it would make a profit. However, I'm glad it was made regardless of how much it earned when it (no doubt!) went straight to DVD (or Netflix - wherever!).

The reason I feel that it would never be considered 'mainstream' is that the central characters are fundamentally unlikable. We're introduced to a professional couple (Patrick Wilson and Katherine Heigl) - he is a weak-willed, spineless excuse of a man who is desperate to have an affair with anything in a skirt. She is a controlling, cold-hearted harpy of a woman. And, as I mentioned, when he finally gets 'lucky' enough to have an affair with an attractive employee, you know it's never going to end well. Let's just say that what follows is a twisted tale of blackmail, murder and double-crossing.

Now, those are traits you may expect from the film's villains (of which there are also the 'traditional' type who come in the form of a pair of meth-heads). However, the fact that those we're supposed to root for, i.e. Wilson and Heigl, also display those - ahem - 'admirable little traits, mean these are hardly your regular 'heroes.' Some may claim that they could be called 'anti-heroes,' however they do little to earn this label, as they're hardly fighting the forces of darkness for the good of mankind, merely to save their own skins (and reputations!). I know Wilson comes across as slightly more sympathetic, as he really does find himself victimised by everyone and you can sort of see why he had an affair when you catch a glimpse of his homelife. James Belushi is a nice guy in the story, but he's just an additional character who we never really get to know.

Now, please don't think I'm coming across as 'harsh' on this film - I actually quite liked it! In these days of selfless heroes (many of which in costumes swinging through cities and fighting hordes of alien bad-guys!) I quite enjoyed watching a pair of real nasty people being pitted against those equally distasteful - it made a pleasant change not to care who wins, only enjoying seeing as many people fail as possible. Yes, they say that you need to 'relate' to characters in order to understand their plight and therefore invest in their journey. I'm pleased to say I don't really relate to any of them and I still enjoyed the - darkly disturbing and sometimes comic- ride. If you're in the mood for something distinctly UNheroic and dark, then this one should kill an hour and a half of your time.

Heigl Shines As A Sadist in This Murderous Black Comedy

This scintillating black comedy about a married couple where the wife rules the house is refreshing hilarity. Katherine Heigl is cast as Mona Champagne, a ball-breaking wife who denies her husband sex unless she has scheduled coitus on her calendar. Patrick Wilson is simply brilliant as Heigl's milquetoast husband Don Champagne who runs a furniture store. He hires a drop-dead gorgeous saleslady, Dusty (Jordana Brewster of "The Fast and the Furious"), with whom he winds up in an extramarital affair until she informs him that she is pregnant. As it turns out, Dusty works as an accomplice to two murderous meth head desperadoes, Murphy (A.J. Buckley of "Zombie Hamlet") and Freeman (Kevin McKidd of "Trainspotting"), and they plan to blackmail Don. In an earlier scene, we saw Murphy and Freeman take advantage of another man who appears to be dead. Anyway, Don's one and only employee before he hired the sexually outgoing Dusty, Les (Jim Belushi of "Red Heat"), decided to give her $13-thousand dollars.

Don's paranoia about the consequences of his affair prompts him to throw himself on the mercy of Mona, and she concocts a scheme whereby she is administer a Mickey Finn into Dusty's drink when the latter comes to see Don about the money. Naturally, Don is frightened at the prospect of Dusty dying from Mona's drink. Don is marginally relieved when Dusty revives just long enough for Mona to slug her with a hammer. Afterward, Mona dons a gown and cuts Dusty's corpse up with a wood-working appliance. She luxuriates in the splatter of Dusty's blood as she mutilates her lifeless body. Later, she has Don drive her over to Dusty's trailer where she stuffs Dusty decapitated head in the freezer. While she is shoving Dusty's body parts into the fridge, Freeman and a hooker surprise her while she is in the trailer. Mona displays no qualms about taking a samurai sword away from the witless girl and skewering her with it like a shish kebab. The dim-witted Freeman doesn't recognize Mona for a moment and she stabs him repeatedly with a knife until he crumples into his own pool of blood. Murphy is considerably upset when he comes home to the trailer and finds Freeman and the girl sliced and diced in their own reservoirs of blood.

Emerging triumphant from her double-murder, Mona warns their gay neighbors about their frisky little dog that encroaches on the Champagne's home. She threatens to kill the little doggie if it ever ventures back onto their premises. One evening while they are preparing to bed, Mona warns Don that she has two deadly knives in her bedside cabinet that she will wield to carve him up if he displeases her. A shocked Don doesn't know what to do until he finds the poor little doggie in their own freezer, and he comes up with a plan to kill his wife that reminded me of the Michael Caine black comedy "A Shock to the Systerm" where he rigged up a booby trap that will electrocute his wife. Don fixes it so that the lightning fixture in their garage will spark up when she switches it on, and the gas leaking from two propane container will ignite. As Don is walking away from a party at their residence, the entire garage blows up.

Director Anthony Burns and scenarists Carlo Allen, Ted Elrick, and Tom Lavagnino have created a flawlessly funny R-rated film that benefits from a light touch. Katherine Heigl is both wicked and clever as the domineering dame who emasculates her husband without a qualm. She treats their son with equal contempt but dotes on her intelligent daughter. Watching Heigl relish the prospect of cutting up a corpse is something that you don't always seen this lightweight comic pull off with her tongue-in-cheek. Burns and company never make a error in plotting the downfall of not only Dusty but also Murphy's accomplices. Everything is done with a wink and "Home Sweet Hell" lives up to its title and is a drastic change of pace for Heigl. If you are a Heigl fan, you don't want to miss "Home Sweet Hell."
