Can't spoil a plot when there isn't one...
22 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It seems that Lynn Redgrave wants to do everything. She's done silly kids' films ("The Lion Of Oz), silly should-have-been-for-adults films ("Hansel and Gretel") shouldn't-have-been-done films (What Ever Happened To..."), and the list just goes on and on. That said, what in heck is this film supposed to be? Funny? I did laugh, but not too often. Dirty? It had some sex/nudity in it. Parody? I guess I missed the joke.

It seems that Midnight is a dead ringer (ha ha) for Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. They have the same job, but the similarity ends there. Midnight is not funny. There's the big difference between the two. Anyhow, she meets some guy and they do things. End of story. There are some freaky moments--when she describes her snake as a phallic symbol, you do get somewhat unnerved. He rides a motorbike really fast, which apparently says something about him. She thinks it's cool. I think it's dangerous and stupid. Oh well, that's why I didn't write the movie.

In conclusion, this movie is awful. It doesn't know what it's doing, and so you just won't know how to react. Well, one must give credit where credit is due. Lynn Redgrave is so far over the top you can barely see her, but she does what she can. She's frightening, occasionally funny, but always watchable. Nice try.
