Rosalie loves to shop too much to let a little thing like no money stop her. When the local shopkeepers no longer take her bad checks or bad credit cards, she's reduced to stealing from one family member to buy presents for others. It's looking pretty bleak until her daughter pushes her into buying a 'guilt gift' of a PC, complete with modem. Master shopper becomes master hacker, and Rosalie is back on top.

The ultimate weird-groaner cult-classic movie
1 April 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is one-of-a-kind.

Overall it's not outstanding, but it's a definite "must-see" for anyone who enjoys torturing themselves with cult-classic bizarre behavior and humor.

It's more of a wacky-bizarre than a psycho-bizarre. We've groaned our way through it several times and the title has become the enigma of "Oh no, don't make us watch that again!" However, it's painfully humorous and worth the time!
