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 »

Watch it for Kyle Secor-
1 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He was in "Homicide Life on the Street" around this time as well. Yes, this movie does represent cheesy, made-for TV drama- but that's the fun of it!.

Tracey Gold does okay as the favored fiancée, who is murdered by someone in a small mid-western town- the title "Midwest Obsession" is better than the generic "Beauty's Revenge"- interesting that this film was marketed in other countries with a title that seemed to remind us of "Fatal Attraction".

Courteney Thorne-Smith is the "Dairy Princess" so at least whoever wrote the screenplay has a sense of humor. While this was based on a true murder, I find it hard to believe that kind of contest exists, and the winner drives a zebra-upholstered pink convertible. The scenes at the end, in the "Airstream" RV that Smith lives in are pretty amusing, albeit unintentional.

This movie proves 2 things 1) My drama teacher said try to find something good in every piece of art or trash-you might learn something and 2) Really good actors can elevate the role to something better. In this case, Secor. All in all, not the worst film ever made. And at least you aren't paying $10.00 to see it in the theatre.
