SUMMARY: The day my momma socked it to the Harper Valley PTA. The smash hit song was considered scandalous and the movie is a terrific satire with a fun-loving comedy style. It's all about that fateful day when my momma socked it to the Harper Valley PTA. Poor Stella Johnson, she and her 13 year old daughter Dee seem to have been overlooked by the Harper Valley welcome wagon. Perhaps it's because Harper Valley wives have suddenly noticed that their husbands leave work the same time voluptuous Stella a widow, goes for her daily jog. These same matrons have decided that Stella should go back where she came from, and threaten to expel her daughter from school because of Stella's nonconformist ways. However, they have another thing coming, because angry Stella and her friend Alice have received a masterful plan for revenge. What ensues is a hysterical scenario of Harper Valley Housekeeping-with Stella wielding the broom-as every PTA. Member gets his just desserts. A delicious comedy confection for the whole family!
MY THOUGHTS: I like this movie because of the comedy and the acting of Barbara Eden. It was nice to see her in another role other than Jeanine. I give this movie 10 weasel stars.
