Oh, oh, I thought - exploitation cheapie but, surprise, surprise, "Delinquent Parents" turns out to be a pretty decent movie. The story makes sense, the acting is quite good, the solution is satisfactory. The leads are quite good, quite likable. The 'who is my momma?' story keeps you interested throughout. Much better movie than you might expect. Sure, you can see where some expenses may have been cut, but the end result is a damn good movie. No, not a blockbuster, but plenty easy to take.
One surprise was the Big Apple dance. I had heard about it but never saw it. The movie did not go the route often taken by many of these types of movies - it stayed within the decency limitations, perhaps more than need by. By today's standards it might be a bore, but if it is a good story and good performances you are looking for check this out. For the most part, by the way, the title is misleading.
