* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: To be fair, Mitch is showcased throughout the whole movie to be an unrelenting, absurdly evil and absurdly well-connected abusive husband, but as BrokenAesop and MoralDissonance tell, the climactic fight is not Slim fighting Mitch off, but performing ''premeditated breaking and entering and murder'', which is ''no different from what Mitch had done at least once during the movie'' (and also she plants falsified letters and other items that will help with her "self defense" testimony). If the movie was ''not'' a high-budget LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek, chances are that Slim would have seen the inside of a jail cell for some time (at least until the investigation cleared her), or ended with a HeWhoFightsMonsters aesop. Instead, out into the sunset she goes, without an ounce of angst from her, or her kid.
