These Two Shall Pass
8 November 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Presented as a "double feature," this is a pair of comedies poking fun at two gross women who received much media attention at the time. In 1993, the previously unknown Lorena Bobbitt took a kitchen knife and cut off her husband John's penis, which she tossed in a field. Incredibly, the appendage was found and successfully reattached. In 1994, a chain-smoking figure skater named Tonya Harding made headlines when she hired a hit-man to break her competitor Nancy Kerrigan's legs. The wounded woman had to withdraw from a contest, enabling Ms. Harding to win...

Sub-titled "Tonya: The Battle of Wounded Knee" and "He Never Gave Me Orgasm: The Lenora Babbitt Story", these two stories flow together well, thanks to a sordid sisterhood. Julie Brown and the second half are a bit funnier, but there are some good supporting characterizations worth noting, in the first half. As the two trashy celebrity women, re-named "Lenora Babbitt" and "Tonya Hardly", Ms. Brown continues to prove her comic skills. However, the subjects and situations are topical and have little long-term worth. You had to be there - and you wish you were not.

**** Attack of the 5 Ft. 2 Women (8/21/94) Julie Brown, Richard Wenk ~ Julie Brown, Adam Storke, Khrystyne Haje, John Hoffman
