Err, the title is almost a summary itself. Based on the true story of a Texas mom who tries to hire a hitman (through her ex's brother) to kill either or both a cheerleader and her mother. ... See full summary »

When popular and beautiful cheerleader Stacey is stabbed to death, who could have done it? It could have been asocial Goth girl Monica, it could've been angst-ridden Jill - or maybe it was the plain girl nobody suspected.
Lesley Ann Warren gives another stunning performance.
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.
