Lesley Ann Warren gives another stunning performance.
23 February 2001 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

Based on an actual event, WILLING TO KILL: THE TEXAS CHEERLEADER STORY stars the talented and beautiful Lesley Ann Warren as an overly devoted mother who resorts to murder to get her beloved daughter a place on the high school cheerleading squad. Another version of the same story, THE POSITIVELY TRUE ADVENTURES OF THE ALLEGED TEXAS CHEERLEADER-MURDERING MOM, took a more comical approach to telling the story and received considerable acclaim, but Ms. Warren's powerhouse performance makes this sadly overlooked telefilm just as rewarding and entertaining. Fortunately, Lifetime Television shows the film sometimes.
