Markie Post plays a Cracked out Mom
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was seen on Lifetime-- Television for Women some years ago. Ms. Post portrays a professional gal who gets caught up in recreational drug use to all out abuse.. stuffing her China White heroin in her tampon boxes to avoid detection... Ms. Post is outstanding portraying the downward spiral of drug addiction. It is hilarious when she reaches bottom with her tasseled locks askew and darkened circles under her eyes. She breaks down her family, her relationship and begins raising hell at her children. This movie is best to watch on rainy late evenings during winter months. I recommend a bold Chardonnay and Reddenbacher popcorn. There are other films of this genre. One featuring Merredith Bastard Berney following another addiction... Basically any of these white bread women gone bad... Beats any "Caged Heat" Womens prison flick around**** four stars
