Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Home Sweet Hell mistakes misogyny for subversive wit, aiming for black comedy but ending up with a grueling test of viewer endurance that wastes game efforts from its likable leads.

Insipid black comedy about suburban materialism and murder.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Home Sweet Hell is a dark comedy about a suburban mom who will go to murderously disturbing lengths to maintain her perfect life. Bloody violence includes a drugged woman being bludgeoned to death and dismembered with a power saw, as well as a scene in which two people are stabbed to death. Perhaps not surprisingly, nobody comes off well here; the women are treated as eye candy and sex objects, and the male characters are either violent, conniving criminals or a weakling who will go along with the most heinous plan to avoid offending his domineering wife. There's some racist and sexist language, a good amount of sex (including plenty of topless women), and frequent profanity (including "f--k" and "p---y"). One scene shows a man snorting crystal meth.
