“Marriage is an institution. Divorce is big business,” is the keyed-up tagline of Divorce Corp., a documentary that pledges to unveil widespread corruption in America’s family court system, which enriches wayward lawyers and dishonorable judges while tearing families apart. Most of the talking-head interviews in this film are convincing enough; indeed, despite the film’s hyper but insubstantial presentation of its information, there likely is a story here. But statistics are few and far between, a look at solutions from countries where divorce is supposedly more civil proves too thin to be useful, and, worst of all, the victims’ stories are largely flimsy and one-sided. The film's press materials tout director Joseph Sorge's extensive research, but fairly quick Internet searches reveal public documents that suggest, at worst, that at least one of his featured victims is a long-term con artist, and, at best, that the stories behind the sad situations unveiled here are more complicated than Sorge lets on. Dr. Drew Pinsky narrates, and the likes of celebrity divorce lawyer Gloria Allred feature among the experts. That may be all you need to know about Divorce Corp. — and you won’t learn much more than that from it.
