Overview

A seemingly ordinary couple jump the tracks into disaster in this drama based on a true story. Chris Anderson Luke Perry is a straight-arrow cop who meets Pam Ashley Judd after she's hurt in a barroom fight. He asks her to dance after helping to stop her bleeding, and it's love at first sight. While Chris plays by the rules, Pam likes to drink, smoke dope, spend money, and cause trouble, and while he wants to make her happy, her emotional instability makes this no easy task. After Chris is fired and takes a job as a security guard, he can no longer pay the bills that Pam is ringing up. He uses his knowledge of security systems to rob banks, and he discovers that he's good at it. Pam eventually finds out about Chris' sideline; the prospect of danger excites her sexually, and she insists on joining in for future robberies, goading him into a crime spree that leads to tragedy. While Normal Life was planned as a theatrical release, the film debuted on premium cable after disputes between the studio and director John McNaughton; despite this, the film earned positive reviews and a cult following.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Tom Wiener
It's easy to understand why this dark and unrelenting psychological drama never made it into movie theaters, which seem to welcome fewer and fewer films with real bite onto their screens. Though not as gloomy as his breakthrough film, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, John McNaughton's look at a suburban marriage gone awry in the worst ways doesn't hold back. Give credit to Ashley Judd, a long way from playing victimized women in much more formulaic films, for letting out all the stops in her portrayal of Pam, the picture of amorality. Normal Life follows many of the conventions of film noir, with an honest man allowing himself to be sucked into a life of crime by a no-good woman, but it is also deliberately less polished than the best films of that genre. It has the immediacy of a documentary, and even if it weren't based on a true story, Normal Life feels like a feature article you'd read in the Sunday edition of your local paper under the headline "Local Cop Gone Bad."

    Dont miss it

    Very few films touch my heart but this one has. The direction in this film is more than real. Ashley Judd and Luke Perry are two of the most wonderfully , talented actors I have ever seen. I love this film and have enjoyed watching it many times.
