Trivia

While a lot of artistic license was taken in the making of this movie, it is based on the 1989 murder of Lisa Cihaski in Wausau, Wisconsin by 20-year old Lori Esker. Esker's boyfriend, Bill Buss, broke off his relationship with Esker and began dating Cihaski. Buss and Cihaski became engaged. Esker left school one night and drove 150 miles to the workplace of Cihaski and strangled her with a belt. The belt used belonged to the victim, Cihaski. Her engagement ring was taken off her hand by Esker. Esker then drove back to school in River Falls. Esker pleaded self defense, however, the act of strangulation showed intent. She was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to life in 1990. Esker was the Dairy Princes, like in the movie, however, Cihaski was a former Homecoming Queen. See more »

The Dairy Queen Will Go Straight To Your Head!
15 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I could watch these sort of movies all day. It's a real shame TV Movies (TVM) don't get the credit they deserve because they do tell a great story in an amazing way. It's a typical afternoon daytime movie and if you ever have a day to yourself, then these are the movies you want to sit down and watch.

Tracey Gold at her best as always and the stunning Courtney Thorne-Smith sure does play a good malicious Dairy Queen Princess. She plays the role extremely well. The lengths she goes to to get the man she wants - and to think there are actually people out there that can go to these extreme lengths. Another true story told to add to my DVD collection. Again, superb acting from the cast. If you're a Tracey Gold fan or a Thorne-Smith fan, this one is definitely one for you. For the women out there, if you have a best friend that's jealous of your relationship, then here's some advice - keep your boyfriend away from the dairy cream! It might just go straight to his head.
