    No!
    I actually thought Reversal of Fortune was pretty well done-ish.
    My favorite part is Glenn Close's line to Claus when he tells her that he wants a job; she replies, "First you marry me for my money, and now you want a job. Claus, you are the prince of perversion!"

    I've never heard of Sunny till a few years ago when they referenced her in an episode of Will and Grace. I laughed even though I had no idea who the woman was. ...I still don't know who she is but God rest her soul.

    Reversal of Fortune = Capolavoro

    Lasse Hallstrom = Genius

    Glenn Close = Priceless

    Hmm... interesting coincidence.
    The doctors charged $22 million to keep her plugged in all these years.
    Sale of her assets in the 80's raised $22 million.
    If I were a cynical person, I'd say the nursing home had milked her out and pulled the plug.

    I first heard about her a few years ago when I read about the case referenced in a book (forgot what). All I can say is, thank goodness. This is why I plan to have a euthanasia agreement. I seriously would rather die than have to be supported by family as a vegetable for years.

    I don't know if Claus did it really, but his recent actions seem to say otherwise. Plus his daughters did side with him, which makes me think that blaming him has more to do with the fact that he wasn't the ideal choice for a husband by Sunny's family. But like the OJ Simpson case... this has been waaay too sensationalized by the media.

    He didn't do it, and it ruined his life too.

    My favorite part of the movie was when Ron Silver said something like "You're a very unusual man, Mr. Bulow," and Jeremy Irons looked at him like he was shooting venom out of his eyes and said "You have no idea."

    I was never a big Will & Grace fan, but the line you are referring to was hands down the funniest thing I ever heard on that show - ever!

    For those of us who were around in the 80s, the von Bulow saga was a big news story. And as it turned out, a friend of mine was one of the nurses on Sunny's floor and helped care for her in the early months of her coma. Amazing she was in a coma for so long...
