This is a really good movie, esp. for camp and childhood memories!
3 May 2003 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I have waited a long time to re-watch this film and it is certainly as good and campy as I remembered it!! I have no idea (yet some idea) what makes this TV Movie of the Week stand out, but it does...as well as some others. Anyone else remember Five Desperate Women? or Weekend of Terror? or The Screaming Woman? or Bad Ronald? What happened to "fun" ABC-TV Movies-of-the-Week like these? These film styles should be revitalized and introduced to the new generation of "bad taste" watchers who pay $10 a film for bad acting and "modified camp" films from one-hit-wonder singers, teenage bimbo "superstars," and wannabe-actor/rap artists. Can't you see J Lo and Eminem and Nelly together in some loopy Made-for-TV or Lifetime movie re-make of "The Philadelphia Story"? Anyway "WIC" is a must see for several reasons, so see it!!
