Pete Plum...doesn't that remind you of a certain Clue character?
Dick Contino is a rocking thirtyish trucker who really swings! He wears a Santa belt pulled to the side and I swear he has no crotch due to really elevated pants! The moviemakers really wanted to make him so cool especially in the musical numbers. "Rock Candy Baby" is like Kids in the Hall: the more you see it, the more you appreciate it and laugh, and laugh, and LAUGH!!! I love the band members swaying to and fro in the background...I wonder how many times they laughed seeing poor Dick clapping his hands with faux soul. John Williams, how could you??
Sandra Giles (RAWRRRR!!!) plays the bad, feisty feline Jana who makes me wish they let her star in a sequel "Bad Momma-O"! Better her than old Chinbutt Contino. This gal will do anything to win a pizza and she can really handle an apple (<SLAP> I want ANSWERS!!!). I'd give her some toppings! My favorite scene is when she defiantly says, "Anything goes Daddy-O!!" And that cigarette girl outfit...I'd take up smoking anyday!
Extra kudos to my B fave Bruno VeSota who plays the ominously evil Chillas and the even more dastardly rubdown scene. He always manages to give great performances; not too over the top, but small, yet memorable roles. No one skulks around in a wine cellar better than Bruno!
Daddy-O isn't your best delinquent, sing-along flick, but it's loads of B schlock fun, and one of my favorite MSTed eps too.
