I hated the movie (stupid women, stupid actresses). Last read the book 20 years ago (I made a list of characters at the time, so I must have found it difficult to concentrate on the story even then!) Have found the book still on my shelves, surprising myself that I hadn't thrown it out and have started reading it again. The novel is obviously written as a satire, you are not expected to like the characters - which is why the film just doesn't really work - even with the best actresses and a happy ending. I'm about a quarter of the way through, so will give an update when (and if) I finish it. If I can stomach it, I will even watch the DVD.Saw the movie but don't remember anything about it
