This just occurred to me the other day. I watched The Good Girl and I didn’t really like it.
Be forewarned – big spoilers ahead … (I think it’s still a new video release).
I felt that the main character never really felt the repercussions of her duplicity.
I think that would have been fine if she went from duplicity to psychosis. At least it would have made for a “twistier” movie. If she had gone through with her plot to poison Holden with the blackberries and then just went off the deep end and cleaned up the rest of her messes, maybe offing Bubba, and even torching the clinic where her hubby got the unfortunate test results.
The way it was, it seemed like the kind of bullshit any old cock-hole head would pull and I didn’t like seeing her getting away with it.
If a “protaganist” is going to get away with something, at least push it over the edge and make her get away with something really big and twisted.
