aka "Wednesday's Child"
23 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

The fictional filming of this movie is shown in the Bob Fosse film STAR 80, which is about the death of Dorothy Stratten, and is called "Wednesday's Child" instead of "Autumn Born". In STAR 80, Dorothy Stratten, played by Muriel Hemingway, is being slapped by an actor, and she bites into a blood pellet too soon, and the director gets mad at her. And then Eric Roberts, who plays Strattens crazy boyfriend/husband Paul Snider, calls her up and gets her to cry on the set. That's in STAR 80 and the movie "Wednesday's Child" is really this movie, "Autumn Born", and it's plain awful. It looks like a porno, has acting like a porno, has music like a porno, but doesn't pay off at all... There is lesbianism involved but they kiss each others noses and that's it... The sex is all edited out for the most part, and all that's left is horrific acting... They cut out so much sex that it doesn't even seem as if this movie deserves an R rating... It's awful, but somewhat fun to watch I guess. In one scene, Stratten falls in love with a wind up mouse (!!!), and then she hears voices in another room singing the Three Blind Mice song, about the farmer's daughter cutting off the mouse's tail, and Stratten begins crying and trying to hide the mouse inside the walls. Since this film mainly deals with lesbianism, they should have at least shown some real kissing, or something other than badly edited nose pecks. To note: other films mentioned in STAR 80 that in real life starred Stratten are "Ballbearings" that is really "Skatetown USA", and there's the movie "They All Laughed" shown, but that title isn't mentioned in STAR 80. Anyhow, since the Fosse film is one of my all time favorite movies, I checked out this one, "Autumn Born", aka, "Wednesday's Child", and I wish I hadn't, because it was a big tease and nothing more.
