Diobolic!. Sexy Jude comes back around.

Yves Simoneau directs this thriller. MOTHER'S BOYS actually is better than I thought it would be, in spite of not being a fan of Jamie Lee Curtis. Curtis plays a very unstable wife and mother, Jude Madigan, who turned her back on her husband, Robert(Peter Gallagher), and their three sons. After three years absence, Jude suddenly appears and wants her family back. However, Robert has moved on and has fallen in love with Callie(Joanne Whalley), an assistant principal at the Madigan boy's school. A true psychopath, Jude, goes all out to bust up Robert's romance and even puts some unscrupulous moves on her oldest young son(Luke Edwards) to carry out violence targeting Callie. She wants her sons back and Robert may just be collateral.

Have to admit that Curtis comes off sexy, jealous and crazy. Also in the cast: Vanessa Redgrave, Paul Guilfoyle, Joey Zimmerman, Colin Ward and Joss Ackland.

Good 90s thriller with a super cast

This hidden gem is a pretty scary and well filmed thriller. And that cast is amazing - all top notch. Jamie Lee Curtis is terrific as the unhinged family abandoning mother of three boys who returns after a 3 year absence and wants her place in her family back. Unfortunately for her, her husband played by the multi talented Peter Gallagher has moved on with a young assistant principal played by the very lovely Joanne Whalley Kilmer. The young children mainly the eldest ends up a pawn in the wack job mother's plans. Vanessa Redgrave plays grandmother.

The movie is quite scary and unpredictable. Not dated even though it's from the early 90s. Watch it.

I quite agree with positive reviews. Apparently they were not among the majority. This appears to be a movie you either love or you hate. Jamie Lee Curtis turns in a fine performance, not over the top more than necessary, full of quiet menace that explodes with enough underneath to make her psychopathy believable. On the surface, she seems in the beginning a normal person. A tic here, a turn of the lip, a set of the eyes, betrays the sickness inside her. The rest of the cast is quite good, though Peter Gallagher is less than stellar, but basically competent. Joanne Whalley is quite believable as was Lynn Redgrave.

The one big problem I have is that Luke Edwards as Kes is turned to Jamie's side too quickly. His role is key, but isn't sufficiently developed. It's sketched instead, which is too bad because, in a sense this is as much his movie as Jamie's. For once, perhaps, a film was under rather than over written.

The movie deserved better than it got.
