Don Champagne (Wilson) seems to have it all: a successful business, a perfect house, perfect kids and a perfect wife. Unfortunately said wife, Mona (Heigl), learns of Don’s affair with a pretty Dusty (Jordana Brewster, Fast Five), this suburban slice of heaven spirals out of control. Don soon realizes that Mona will stop at nothing, including murder, to maintain their storybook life where “perception is everything.”

Directed by Anthony Burns, the movie also features James Belushi (Thief), and Kevin McKidd (TV’s Grey’s Anatomy).

Home Sweet Hell was released online in February, 2015, followed by a limited theatrical release last week. Reviews were mixed, with Peter Vonder Haar of the Village Voice humorously pointing out that Heigl’s crazed character is “practically a parody of every negative behavior Heigl has been accused of over the course of her career: She’s humorless, domineering, occasionally unhinged.”
