A good drama for church ladies
31 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

If you think a movie with a title like "Daughter of the Streets" just has to be a gritty good-girl-goes-bad story similar to George C. Scott's gut wrenching "Hardcore", think again. This lame TV flick tells of an oh so perfect mother (Alexander) who has some awful disease which is so debilitating she can't support her family so her oh so perfect teenage daughter (Zal, who was wonderful in "Table for Five") starts to get poor grades in school, then smokes, then drinks, then dates a pimp, and then somehow just sort of starts selling her body (the next logical step, right?) curbside so she can feed her family. This unseemly turn of events inspires the oh so perfect mom to have some kind of miraculous remission so she can begin a campaign to get kids off the streets thereby saving the day. This super sanitized soap opera quality tripe has about as much to do with reality as it does with entertainment. Just about nothing. (C-)
