The definition of campy...
19 November 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

"Wicked" is a "thriller" about a 14 year old girl who sees an opportunity when she finds her mom cheating, kill her, but why? Because she has a major crush on her dad. Ick.

This straight to video flick is truly campy, it's overly stylized, lots of hip music (I kinda liked it though, maybe I'll keep an eye out for the sound track), and cheesy acting, although a young Julia Stiles is pretty good, she doesn't seem as uncomfortable as the audience.

If you're in the mood for a few laughs at the expense of a film, "Wicked" is for you. For the rest, there's nothing here.

* 1/2 out of **** for actual movie, *** out of **** for it's camp value.

There is one highlight, though, a juicy line Julia Stiles says to her dad when he wants to get married to a new woman: "I'll tell her about the mole on your left a** cheek!". That gives away whether or not anything happens between her and her dad, but you shouldn't be watching this movie for its plot.
