Pretty nice trash!
6 April 2006 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

"Distant Cousins" is a bad movie. But everybody knows that. It's a cheap B-movie. I'm sure no one expects it to be Oscar material. So the real question is: is it fun? Surprisingly, it is. The plot is simple. The Sullivan's get a visit from their distant cousin Harry and his girlfriend. The pair plan on stealing their identity's… and that's about it for the story. The best thing about the movie is its cast. David Keith is really having fun as cousin Harry. The guy is funny. He holds the movie together. Marg Helgenberger is the hottest psycho ever. Lots of cleavage, short skirts, tight skirts and guess what? She can even act. Mel Harris does an alright job as the heroine too. The script moves along nicely, even with all its holes. When it comes to bad movies, "Distant Cousins" is actually pretty good. It kept my interest, made me laugh at how camp it is and the fact is I really enjoyed it. And man… Marg is so hot! My God!
