one of morgan fairchild's happier roles. it's revenge-of-the-nerds meets the mob.
26 May 2000 | by (st. louis) – See all my reviews

problem: what to do with morgan fairchild besides putting her in a tight dress?

answer: she is the perfect trophy girlfriend for a mob boss.

amazingly, this movie is never boring. it may be entirely daffy, but that is its aim and it hits the mark. this is ms. fairchild's happiest outing, and a smart role for eddie deezen, who brings his best REVENGE OF THE NERDS II and turns it up a notch. everyone in fact is well cast, and this is why the movie holds together so well.

for those who seek lunacy but don't want slapstick, or who simply want to see morgan fairchild without cringing.
