Aus Verärgerung über nörgelnde Nachbarinnen und andere unliebsame Zeitgenossen wird eine unscheinbare, pflichtbewußte Hausfrau und Mutter zur Serienmörderin, die jedes Problem mit Gewalt aus dem Weg räumt. In der Gerichtsverhandlung kann sie die Sympathien der Öffentlichkeit für sich gewinnen. Doppelbödige "schwarze" Komödie von ausgesuchter, aber nie selbstzweckhafter Geschmacklosigkeit, die die Kehrseiten des bürgerlichen Familien- und Vorstadtidylls ebenso aufs Korn nimmt wie den modischen Medienwahn um pathologische Mörder. Kathleen Turner überspielt mit einer komödiantischen Glanzleistung die Längen der Geschichte. [film-dienst]
