Interesting only as a story of just one more scumbag in power during the Reagan administration. Adequate acting, but superficial characters and story, and even my 12 year old kept asking why the mother and children were so compliant, insipid and, well, moronic in their response to this guy. Well...this was the 80's I guess. But we did watch the whole thing, so it gets a 5 from me.
