Audience Reviews for Bad for Each Other

it's among the collection of "bad girls in film noir" but there's nothing too noir about it, just a story of a young talented doctor's struggle between integrity and wealth...and lizabeth scott is surely among the league of wealth, like daisy in the great gatsby...gee, she's surely a honey pie, her voice is so sweet and feminine (also adorable to look at) it's no surprise that the doctor will naturally go for it in the first place. but eventually our man selects the path of integrity after a mouthful taste of the sweet, cutie pie. typical man, i must say..ha. not very noir, i suppose. noir man is the creature of lust hindered by his remains of humanity and eventually the noir man will surrender to his dark side and get a taste of the supreme evil incarnation of the super-cunt(no soft-core honey pie but hard-core spicy meat pie!) and then compulsively perish with it! lol.

Personal redemption 50's programmer with Heston temporarily lead astray by rich girl Scott until seeing the error of his ways in an abrupt resolution. Enjoyable if you like the stars with nice work by Foster and particularly Marjorie Rambeau in a small part.
