Death Becomes Her
A morality tale based on a very human foible - in this case the fear of growing old and the search for perpetual youth, or at least a youthful appearance. Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn play aging childhood friends who grow to absolutely hate each other. Helen, (Goldie Hawn), hates Madeline, (Meryl Streep), because she always steals her boyfriends. Helen is currently in love with Dr Ernest Menville, played by Bruce Willis, but Madeline steals him as well and they get married. Years later, both go to a beautiful witch who has a youth potion that allows them to be immortal and gorgeous forever, but they get more than they bargained for when they both die but stay alive (due to the potion).Now they must rely on Ernest to save their skin from rotting.
Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn are perfect as the two warring women, and Bruce Willis is surprisingly very good at playing Ernest, the man caught between these two women, and we get to see him ditching his action star hero type to an emotional weakling. Meanwhile Isabella Rosalini played a delightfully, sexually sensual role. A dark comedy that provides a lot of amazing laughs!
