High school students love the play, but the film is virtually unobtainable. The playwright, Jonathan Marc Sherman, never really made it big, but this is a wonderful, poignant, clever, hilarious film, and the cast, including Hamilton, who starred in the made-for-t.v.-flick, "The 60s," is excellent. The play has been performed at numerous high schools around the country, and kids love it. Because Sherman was only 18 (I believe) when he wrote it, it really speaks to those who are going through many of the same problems with the opposite sex. The sequence called "Tyrannosaurus Rex," in which Wallace performs an offensive stand-up routine before all of the women in his life and they leave, one-by-one, is just amazing. The film gets a bit hokey for some at the end, as Wallace discovers true love, but it still works as a whole. Women and Wallace deserves a re-release and a wider audience.

Spoiler! I liked that movie very much. Especially the great acting of
Joana Going. I had pins and needles when she killed her grandmother.
The film is made very well and Joana is exactly like a school girl. For
those of you who haven't seen the movie, it is about a girl who kills
her mother. After that she makes acquaintance with a nice schoolmate
and they are great company. She falls in love with a teacher. Her
grandmother treats her like nothing. After the old woman dies from her
own walking stick, the girl decides that this teacher will be hers and
she makes everything possible to win him. But I have a big problem. I
can't find the movie anywhere.
If someone has it, please email me, let me know.
