"...Disco Freddy got a vasectomy..."
19 November 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That was an actual line from the movie. For real. The movie is a pretty good interpretation of the sensational 80s recipe of lust, betrayal, revenge, and cops.

For some reason, the directors chose Timothy Busfield as the hunky, suave, debonair, sexy and disco-ee Fred "Disco Freddy" Schultz, a cop with some baggage. Viewers are treated to the always-red Busfield in snakeskin speedos, an uncomfortably corny wet t-shirt contest, and an endless array of semi nude poses that all beg the eighties plea, "Get a room!" Not only are we supposed to believe that he is a "fox" (yes - they use that term as well), but also quite a tough guy. Who did he beat out for the part - Bronson Pinchot?!

Lindsay Frost does an adequate job portraying the hard-luck Laurencia 'Bambi' Bembenek, and in yet another nauseating appearance, Linda Blair is resurrected as an insignificant filler.

No one in this Lifetime bonanza is likable. In fact, you start to think everyone got what they deserved. Watch it if you enjoy a good bad Lifetime movie!
