Ring For De Soup? Karen Black is awesome!!
10 September 2003 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

Never mind its obscurity , fans of 80s glossy childish trash will love this as well as young teenagers who may find it a little dated.Altenatively known as BAD MANNERS in Australia Karen Black stars and is in full nerosis here and has never been better. Rumour has it this canadian made curiousity was first put forward by Disney who later backed out of the project. Younger Fans of REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS should eat this up with Martin Mull, that blonde girl with the annoying voice in Twin Peaks, Russ Meyers ex wife and a cast of unknowns who fit with the zany acting style this movie requires. Has a snippet of SHOGUN ASSASSIN and band SPARKS supply the excellent soundtrack.If anyone knows if a LP or CD exists please contact me!!! I thought it was goofy and great!
