Lifetime Movie of the Week

Showing that women have the power, one flick at a time.

"This Thursday, Meredith Baxter Birney gets beaten with an iron rod, in a Lifetime Original: Rod..."

A genre of Made for TV Movies, also known as "Women in Jeopardy," that feature similar plots and thematic elements — mainly aggrieved women and their struggles to find empowerment of one sort or another.

The Trope Namer is Lifetime, a cable TV channel in the United States with programming geared toward female audiences (or, at least, female audiences who conform to Lifetime's conception of its target demographic), which is well known for giving rise to the subgenre. Despite being the Trope Namer and Trope Codifier, Lifetime isn't the only source of movies in this subgenre; some of the most well-known (Not Without My Daughter) and most-parodied (Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?) movies weren't Lifetime Movies at all, although they now are frequently re-run on that channel. (Indeed, only two of the movies in the page image above are Lifetime Movies, and one of them is a theatrical movie.)


The four basic plots of the Lifetime Movie of the Week can be summarized as follows:

  • Woman against man. A woman suffers from Domestic Abuse, Parental Incest, or has a Stalker with a Crush or psycho ex-boyfriend. Rape as Drama may be involved or merely threatened. This plot is very likely to end in a Karmic Death for the Evil Man.
  • Woman against woman. A woman is abused, oppressed, or vilified by another woman — either in a position of power over her, like her boss or mother; or a jealous ex / stalker of the Good Woman's boyfriend/husband. The Evil woman is always prettier and more popular than the heroine. The more cartoonish ones may climax with a Designated Girl Fight. This one is likely to end in the Evil Woman going to jail, though the evil ex and stalker are more prone to Karmic Death.
  • Woman against child. A woman has a problem child — autistic, seriously ill, violent, or drug-addicted. She must fight accusations of abuse or neglect while trying to find someone to help her cope. This one usually turns out in a Downer Ending if the child is beyond help.
  • Advertisement:
  • Woman against herself. A selfish, alcoholic, or generally insane woman wrecks her life and/or family despite everyone's attempts to help. This one is likely to end up in her being a Karma Houdini, unless it's Ripped from the Headlines and the real life woman in question went to jail. Also, there is usually a sympathetic character who serves one of the above roles.

In all cases, she must fight not only against her problems, but also against the Uncaring System that refuses to believe her or even accuses her of being the villain. Anyone on her side is unable or unwilling to help her, except for one person, typically male, who comes to believe in her or her plight and comes to her rescue at the end, but not before she's been put through a Trauma Conga Line.

One reason for the films' similarities is that they are designed to play on the fears of their target demographic. Thus, the themes of violent or uncaring men, female rivalries, smothering mothers, difficult children, and absent support systems are prevalent. Though notionally intended to send a message of empowerment by having the female triumph, it can seem like they have the opposite effect, as the world is depicted as harshly uncaring and even antagonistic toward "good" women, and rarely does a protagonist succeed without help from a male ally. For the same reason, expect Ripped from the Headlines and Very Loosely Based on a True Story to come into play (and be heavily advertised).

For the opposite, see A Hallmark Presentation, named for the Hallmark Hall of Fame series of films which, appropriately for a greeting-card company, tend towards the other end of the scale.

    Tropes common to the subgenre 


Straight Examples

    Comic Books 
  • A variation of this can be found in V for Vendetta in the story arc of Rosemary Almond, a gentle and demure housewife whose husband, Derek, just can't wait to get home every evening so he can get to beat her up and get drunk as a way to vent off his everyday frustrations. Derek is then killed by V himself, making her a Widow Woman. She is then hit on by one of her husband's co-workers whose sole purpose is to sully her husband's memory by fucking his wife. He is also killed by V later on. She is then expelled from society and is forced to become a showgirl to support herself. Eventually she snaps and assassinates England's dictator.

    Comic Strips 
  • Between Friends bears many aspects of this genre, although as much as men are depicted badly, the allegedly "empowered" women are depicted as hyper-insecure, Does This Make Me Look Fat? types who both agonize over buying the low-fat double-whipped frappucino and also pound back the cheesecake like there's no tomorrow.
  • For Better or for Worse has Michael's novel, Stone Season. The plot concerns a woman stuck in a loveless marriage with an abusive husband which she makes no effort whatsoever to escape until the 'empowering' climax: he goes out into a storm to hit the bar and doesn't return. She goes searching for him, finds him seriously injured and weakened, and he berates her to help him. She says "No", and leaves him to die. She's a Pinball Protagonist who only exists to suffer tragically until 'fate' disposes of her husband for her, and is praised as 'strong' and 'amazing' for this. (The excerpts given on Michael's Character Blog also depict 1960s Canada as being more or less like the 1860s in the rest of the Western world.)

    Fan Works 

    Films — Live-Action 
  • Enough features a protagonist who, after abuse and cheating from her husband, breaks into her husband's house with the full intention of beating him to death with her bare hands. Her threat, "self-defense isn't murder", rings pretty hollow considering she's instigating the fight in his home and not hers, goes out of her way to remove anything he could use to defend himself, and even plants evidence to prove the version of the story she plans to tell the cops. She gets the upper hand, but then she chickens out. After more struggling he falls out a two-story window.
  • Julia Roberts plays a wife escaping the grasp of her abusive husband in Sleeping with the Enemy.
  • Sally Field's Not Without My Daughter, taken from the book by Betty Mahmoody. Neither the Iranians nor Roger Ebert were impressed.
    • Sally Field does it again in Eye for an Eye, which deals with her struggles to cope with the brutal rape and murder of her daughter after the perpetrator gets Off on a Technicality. Unlike Enough, Sally's character plays it smarter by baiting the evil creep and getting him to break into her house so she can kill him and more reasonably claim self-defense.
  • The 1993 remake of Attack of the 50-Foot Woman fits this formula. Men are abusive, sex-obsessed monsters? Check. Women are weak, spineless victims? Check.
  • The Oksana Baiul Story. Most glaring among the liberties taken is the near-complete absence of Viktor Petrenko. In real life he persuaded his own coach to coach Oksana, he paid for all her costumes early on, and even translated for her during interviews before she learned English.
  • Waiting to Exhale is a bitter piece-of-life movie where all men who ever walk on screen are either immature, total assholes or perverts who can't keep it in their pants, leaving all the main Four-Girl Ensemble embittered, lonely or sad and realizing that having Sisters Before Misters is the best way of life for women if they don't want men to walk all over them.
  • Cyberbully (2011) is one of these, even though it aired on ABC Family.
    • Cyberbully star Emily Osment appeared in an actual LMOTW in 2014, A Daughter's Nightmare.
  • The 1993 movie Men Don't Tell is a Gender Flip.
  • The Burning Bed is a made-for-tv movie that dramatizes the real-life story of a battered wife who sets her abusive husband on fire.note 
  • The 2014 thriller, No Good Deed, ultimately falls into this category. The film is about a wife and mother of two named Terri, who is married to an insensitive jerk of a husband named Jeffery. It's later revealed that the husband was cheating on her. She then meets and gets tormented by an escaped convict, looking to kill her cheating husband.
  • Perhaps the most famous example was the two part film about the real life murderer Betty Broderick. After her husband cheated and left her for another woman, Betty stalks and harasses her ex husband for months before finally killing him and his new wife in their bed. While the film shows some of Betty's crazy actions prior to the double murders and ends with her getting convicted and thrown in prison, the film goes out of its way to show that her ex-husband was just as bad and drove Betty to kill him, which their own children claimed wasn't true.
  • When the Bough Breaks was criticized for being basically a Lifetime movie that made it to the big screen. The Perfect Guy got similar criticism.
  • Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life is about a teenage boy who becomes addicted to internet pornography after looking at some pictures of women in bikinis.
  • The 2006 film, Provoked has Aishwarya Rai who plays Kiranjit Ahluwalia, a Punjabi woman who moved to London to marry a man named Deepak, played by Naveen Andrews. He became physically, emotionally, and sexually abusive to her for ten years and their two children bore witness to it. One day, in 1989, Kiranjit got tired of all the abuse that she decided to kill her husband in his sleep by using Napalm oil mix to pour on his feet and burn him. She was later arrested and was found guilty of murder with a sentence of life imprisonment for a possibility of parole in 12 years in her trial. Her case attracted attention to a support group called Southall Black Sisters who help women who have been beaten and abused by their husbands.
  • The horror/comedy independent film Teeth is basically a LMOTW with the twist that our innocent female lead has a carnivorous vagina.
  • 1983's Independence Day definitely qualifies; it's set in a small town in New Mexico - a waitress who wants to leave, but is discouraged by a mechanic who did leave but came back. Meanwhile they learn the mechanic's sister is regularly beaten by her husband. she goes Im Taking You With Me on hubby's abusive ass in the climax.

  • A lot of Jodi Picoult's novels fit this trope, usually falling into the woman vs. sick child and woman vs. herself category.
  • In the V. C. Andrews novel Celeste, it's mentioned that the events of the Cutler Series by the same author (a girl discovers that she was kidnapped as a child, and has to go to a new family who are by turns abusive and neglectful) were turned into a Lifetime-esque movie.
  • About a third of Catherine Anderson's contemporary romances are this in print form, especially Baby Love, Star Bright and Only By Your Touch.
  • Most of Danielle Steel's books are this in literary form. Throughout the mid-nineties, a large chunk of them were adapted into TV movies, which, while initially aired on NBC, where eventually bought by and frequently reaired on Lifetime.

    Live-Action TV 
  • The Mexican show Lo Que Callamos las Mujeres ("What us Women Keep for Ourselves"), and the Chilean show Mujer: Rompe el silencio ("Woman: Break the Silence) are pretty much Latin-American versions of Lifetime movies in a one-hour TV series format. Stories about females in peril or distress that claim to portray how women live in modern society? Check. Men portrayed as selfish, cruel, one-dimensional, perverted and/or abusive unless they throw themselves at the Lead-Du-Jour's feet and kiss her ass? Check. Women caricatured as weepy, whiny, weak little victims who are Too Dumb to Live to an egregious degree, yet we're expected to sympathise with them without any question? Check.
    • And before either of those two shows, there was Mujer: Casos de la Vida Real ("Women: Real Life Cases") with former Mexican young actress Silvia Pinal (known to younger people as the old lady in "Mujer..."). Interestingly, the show actually started as a charity show, raising money to help those affected by a 1985 earthquake that devastated Mexico City. This came full-circle with the show's 20th anniversary (2005), where they did an hour-long special about Real Life women in the 1985 earthquake. In any case, Mujer: Casos de la Vida Real was revolutionary in its day, as it showed cases involving abortion, homosexuality, etc. in the context of a very conservative society like Mexico. The show ended up a Long Runner, lasting until 2007.
    • And continued by La rosa de Guadalupe ("The Rose of Guadalupe") and Cada Quien Su Santo ("To Each His own Saint", also aired on Televisa and TV Azteca respectively, which is about the same but with religion played in, although not all stories featured in both programs are focused exclusively on women. Another Televisa series, Como dice el dicho, also follows the formula.
    • The show has also been sold and re-made in other Latin-American countries,
  • More than a few episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit fall into this, not helped by Olivia being progressively flanderized into a Straw Feminist.
    • One episode deconstructs this when Stabler suddenly finds himself being treated as if he was "the evil man" in this sort of drama, despite him (for once) genuinely doing everything he could to help the female victim (as in, really trying to help instead of simply wanting REVEEEENGE).
    • Another didn't so much deconstruct it as show how absurd making the massive leaps in logic these movies do can be in real life. A woman claims her ex-husband is stalking her and burned her, and after a confrontation with the cops he gets killed. Turns out she burned herself and accused him of it because she was resentful of him leaving her. Olivia fought for her the whole way, and was rewarded with the woman looking right in her eyes and saying "I sure showed him!" as she lay dying after revealing her scheme. In short, Olivia's own prejudices helped a woman kill her husband by proxy.
    • Also sort-of lampshaded in a case where a woman sets a Lifetime movie-worthy Wounded Gazelle Gambit by having sex with her divorce attorney and then falsely accusing her much-hated sports star ex-husband of raping her, a bait that Olivia and everyone else (save for Elliot) completely swallow. Then this horribly backfires when the husband snaps and fatally immolates his lying ex-wife, but she still won't tell the truth of the false rape accusation even as Olivia asks her on her death bed. Naturally, Olivia is appalled when the lawyer explains what truly happened.
  • The Oxygen series Snapped tries to promote itself in the same vein as the Lifetime movies by being about women who have suffered terrible abuse and decide to kill their abusers.
    • Occasionally, there are women featured who killed/tried to kill their significant other for no clear reason. That, or completely unsympathetic reasons, like trying to collect insurance money/inheritance, or they had a love interest on the side and needed the first guy out of the way.
  • Strong Medicine is this in Medical Drama format. Unsurprisingly, it was produced for Lifetime.
  • Morning TV shows in Chile have some sketches about supposed Real Life stories, but said "stories" are not only very badly acted and planned but also pretty much Lifetime Movies in 20-minute format.
  • Human Trafficking counts, but unlike most Lifetime films it was well received. The fact that it's inspired by actual events might have helped though.
  • There used to be an Indonesian version of this program in one of the local TV channels called "Oh, Mama. Oh, Papa" (or something like that) based on a true story segment from a magazine with the same name.
  • In Emmerdale we have an glaring example centering around Chas and Carl.
    • Firstly Chas Dingle discovers her Jerkass boyfriend, Carl King, has been cheating with one of her friends. It reaches "lifetime" levels when she begins secretly plotting an elaborate revenge with her cousin Charity in order to punish them. This includes weeks of getting engaged, organising a wedding and then finally planning to divorce him right after for every penny he's got. This deception goes on until the day of the wedding where Chas doesn't go through with it and reveals she knew he was a dirty cheat. The fact that both Carl's and herself's entire friends and families are dragged through this charade for the sake of pure spite is very quickly forgotten if even really touched upon. She just settles for the paltry 30 grand she siphoned off from his money.
    • Secondly much later down the line Chas herself begins an affair with Cameron Murray. Her pregnant niece's fiancee. Yep, she's a massive Hypocrite. But she's still portrayed as a Sympathetic Adulterer. Carl, of all people in the world, finds out and manages to capture an incriminating picture. Over the next few episodes Carl acts unsurprisingly like a smug jerk whilst threatening to expose Chas unless she coughs up the 30 grand she stole. However this might seem justified given Chas was willing to ruin him for the same crime, so naturally his character is Flanderized from a jerkass blackmailing his ex for payback, to a Stalker with a Crush and finally an attempted rapist. Thus Chas and Cameron end up bludgeoning him to death with a brick. And she ends up portrayed as a traumatised woobie on trial for his murder.
  • The Philippine soap "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" (Just Don't Be Gone) fits the trope, mostly since the lead woman only wants nothing but to take her son back from the husband who cheated on her. She succeeds, but doesn't kill the husband (since he ends up in a mental hospital) and both women (the latter whom the husband had an affair with but later revealed in the finale by the husband himself that she was just a substitute for the protagonist he still loved,) get their happy ending.
  • The NBC series Sisters was syndicated on Lifetime for several years and in-universe, a TV movie was made about middle-sister Georgie serving as the surrogate mother for second-youngest sister Frankie. When the women traveled to LA to watch the filming, they were sorely disappointed in how melodramatic and overblown the film had become (possibly lampshading Lifetime's tendency to do this).


    Comic Books 
  • In Ultimate Spider-Man, Flash Thompson was kidnapped by mercenaries who mistook him for Spider-Man. After managing to escape, Flash and his family use the resulting media frenzy to their advantage. The peak of this is a Lifetime movie based on the experience. From the short snippet we see, it's pretty bad.
  • Transmetropolitan. In the future Lifetime movies can be about men, too. Men who struggle with raising headless children, saving nippleless strippers and dodging insane police snipers to save the world from crime by telling everyone that it is wrong.

  • Her Married Lover looks like a straight example, but notice that the flashbacks tend to have more of this style than the scenes in the present? It turns out this is a deconstruction.
  • Saved!! features clips from a fictional Lifetime movie, complete with Adam Westing from Valerie Bertinelli. It leads to a Eureka Moment when the main character realizes that she's pregnant as a result of something she sees in the movie.
    "Up next on Lifetime, Valerie Bertinelli stars in Bitter Harvest, a sensitive portrayal of one woman's struggle with cancer…"
  • Parodied in The Naked Gun 33 1/3, in which all the films nominated for an Academy Award have a synopsis starting with "One woman's struggle to..."
  • A Deadly Adoption. Or is it...?

    Live-Action TV 
  • An episode of 30 Rock featured scenes from a fictional Lifetime movie which told the story of how C.C. became a congresswoman after being shot in the face by a dog. The movie was titled A Dog Took My Face And Gave Me A Better Face To Change The World: The Celeste Cunningham Story and the scene where she's shot had her dramatically gasping "I'm going to get into politics!" as she fell to the ground.
  • Saturday Night Live did a Real Trailer, Fake Movie for "Lifetime's" Hello Stepson, Now Let's Go to Bed: I Went to Bed with My Stepson: The Laura Bengal Covington Story.
    • They did another one, "To Love, Honor, and Stalk", about a woman whose husband (played by guest host John McCain) kept "invading her personal space" (i.e. standing too close to her). After the trailer, the "real life" victim explained that she and her husband discovered he had a hearing disability, and was subsequently lauded for standing up to his abuse of being so close to her all the time.
    • A sketch about a Lifetime channel game show, "What's Wrong With Tanya?" where the contestants were all suburban mothers from Lifetime movies. They had to guess what specifically was troubling different teenagers named "Tanya" that were brought out.
    "Tanya! You've been going to those parties where girls give oral sex for bracelets!"
  • Mentioned in an episode of Parks and Recreation:
    Ann: I watch a lot of Lifetime movies. There was this one, How Far is Too Far Enough: The Terry Palaver Lonagan Story. This woman had agoraphobia and her therapist was obsessed with her. And he hid in her house, and then he attacked her and tried to eat her toes. Also, her daughter was having sex way too young. So yeah, free self defense class? I'm there.
  • "The Wedding Bride" from How I Met Your Mother is an over-the-top version of these combined with a healthy dose of Her Code Name Was "Mary Sue" that cast Ted and Stella's relationship as the good girl in love with an evil man and her leaving him at the altar from out of the blue as the happy ending. That is not how it happened in the show proper.
  • Parodied by Almost Live! here, though it was making fun of NBC's awful "Made for TV movies" that followed a similar format. In this one, the "victim" is an alien abductee who behaves insanely after her return.
  • Hot in Cleveland has Victoria Chase, a largely washed-up soap actress who also starred in number of Lifetime Original Movies, all of which have overly exaggerated titles, such as "Lady Storm Chaser", "Concrete Pillow", "The Princess and the Plumber" and "Soccer Mom Ninja."
  • Schitt's Creek has an episode where White-Dwarf Starlet Moira Rose is delighted that a Lifetime movie-of-the-week she did with Joyce Dewitt called Not Without My Cousin about two astrophysicist cousins who get kidnapped in Lebanon is being re-aired. Moira complains that Dewitt insisted on wearing pigtails and bemoans that her love scene got the aerial shot, but she declares the film had its moments.
  • Lifetime got in on the act in June 2015 with A Deadly Adoption, starring Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig. It featured all of the standard tropes turned Up to Eleven. The decision to do a straight-faced parody à la The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra that never turned to wink at the camera or crack obvious jokes ended up confusing many TV snark and social media sites, several of which concluded it was dead-set serious and sincere (which just made the whole thing more amusing).

  • Chainsawsuit has She Cried Veto: The Susan Miller Story (starts here), in which Susan Miller is assaulted by the President of the United States. Money quote:
    The President: My new bill will make rape the new legal currency of America.
  • In The Adventures of Dr. McNinja after the ghost wizard takes over Dark Smoke Puncher he suggests that his mother might get a Lifetime movie out of their fight, entitled A Woman's Choice. A Mother's Nightmare. The alt-text goes on to say:
    I think that's how I want to see the first Dr. McNinja movie made. With the budget and style of a movie on Lifetime. What's that? Why yes, I will throw away life's opportunities for the sake of a joke.
    • Immediately subverted on the next page, when Mitzi unhesitatingly orders Gordito to shoot her son fatally.
  • Simultaneously played straight and subverted in a Something*Positive arc, in which Kharisma's arrest for murder is portrayed as an inspiring Lifetime Movie... but even the actress portraying her knows it's a load of bull.

  • Sent up in American Dad!:
    Roger: Oh, my God, look what's on Lifetime! Daphne Zuniga in Spooning with Anger.
    Steve: So?
    Roger: So?! That's our favorite spousal abuse movie of all time. We gave it even higher marks than Valerie Bertinelli's classic, Please, Kevin. Not in the Face.
    TV: "I'm sorry dinner was late! I love you so much!"
    Roger: Why do they stay, Steve? Why do they stay?
    • That particular episode ("A.T. the Abusive Terrestrial") is itself a parody of these... and ET. Roger feels neglected by Steve, so he makes friends with a new boy (an Expy of Elliot). The boy eventually turns abusive, which Roger tries to hide from Steve. When he does find out, Steve helps Roger figure out a way to escape safely by pretending he has to return to his homeworld. However, the boy catches on, so Roger settles for kicking him in the crotch, pushing over his bike then walking off.
    • In another episode, Roger watches A Cyst For Amelia, starring Delta Burke.
  • A skit on the claymation show Starveillance parodies how Lifetime movies are usually the end of the line for actresses, particularly TV actresses, with sinking careers. The skit features Mischa Barton taking a nap in a cafe shortly after her character was killed off on The O.C.. In her dream, she meets Michelle Rodriguez, Star Jones, and Shannen Doherty whose entry is accompanied by an ominous flash of lightning. They tell her that, since she left the show that made her famous, her career, much like theirs, is doomed to spiral downward, with her only career openings all being on the Lifetime channel. They point to Shelley Long, whose career was never the same after Cheers ended and is still preparing for an audition for Shakespeare In Love even though that movie came out years ago. The dream ends with the other actresses mobbing Mischa like zombies, chanting "You're one of us now, Mischa!" She is finally awakened from her nightmare by her agent, who is calling her with a movie role. She is initially overjoyed to hear his voice, but after she learns that the role she's been offered is that of a young mother with cancer, she asks what channel the movie is airing on. Cue Big "NO!".
    • But follow that with a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment when she ended up in the Lifetime movie Homecoming, as a psycho who couldn't let go of her high school sweetheart and lost it when he brought his new girlfriend home for the weekend.
  • Family Guy had Brian and his girlfriend Jillian watching a commercial for a Lifetime movie entitled Men Are Terrible and Will Hurt You Because This Is Lifetime. What little we saw of it consisted of a woman who was raped by her doctor, who then tells her in a very uninterested fashion that she has cancer.
    • An earlier episode showed the family watching a show with two women eating ice cream and making very lame jokes about men. Then it went to commercial announcing that they were watching Lifetime: Television for Idiots.
    • Another episode featured Raped By a Clown, starring Meredith Baxter-Birney (who voiced herself).
    • The episode "The Story of Brenda Q." subverts this. It's NOT a parody.
  • An episode of The Simpsons had Marge watching "WifeTime: Television for Housewives", the movie being about a widow whose husband was heavily in debt and didn't have any life insurance (despite the fact that debt obligations aren't inherited and the worst that could be done is property repossession). The widow becomes insane, homeless, broke, and ugly; she then ends up going to Harvard Medical a cadaver.
    • In another episode, Dr. Hibbert gives Marge a DVD of a Lifetime movie called The Woman Who Couldn't Leave Her House to help her cope with the agoraphobia she developed after being robbed at gunpoint.
    • Then there was the time the babysitter thought Homer was trying to grab her butt (he was actually trying to pull off a piece of candy that was stuck to the seat of her pants—thus explaining the incriminating drool). She denounced him for sexual harassment. Next thing you know, Fox is running the original movie Homer S: Portrait of an Ass-Grabber, starring Dennis Franz as Homer.
    • In "Bart The Murderer", Bart is accused of apparently killing Skinner and soon there's a TV movie titled Blood On The Blackboard: The Bart Simpson Story starring Neil Patrick Harris.
  • From the Beavis And Butthead episode "Blackout": "Melissa Gilbert stars in... Asbestos In Obstetrics!"
