Cheesy, but still has its moments!
25 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a movie from childhood I remembered fondly enough I had to Netflix it. Harper Valley's PTA decides that widowed door to door makeup saleswoman Stella Johnson is not proper enough for the image the school wishes parents to project. She dresses too sexy and has a social life*gasp*. The PTA sends home a nasty condescending letter via Stella's daughter and of course Stella's upset-which causes her to begin a mission to expose the towns hypocrisy. The hi-jinks involved exposing the PTA are pretty seventh grade, but this was the same era that produced the Duke boys wreaking havoc on Hazzard-actually, this movie has a very similar feel to the Dukes Of Hazzard. This day and age there are still people who frown upon single mothers being beautiful and sexy so I suppose it could still get a laugh or two.
