How Could You Not Want to See This?
19 October 2001 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

How to describe the breathaking majesty of this film? Simple: Mimi Rodgers in the full maelstrom of nationwide Fowley Fever takes on a tv film project in which she will play a single mother who will prostitute herself in Reno in order to pay for her aging mother's Alzheimer's medicene. Dotty mom played by Tyne Daily. When daughter done dirty by amoral casino pimp, dotty mom comes through with old mafia connection to snuff wrongdoing party and free daughter from iron grip of party-town hooker industry. Octogenarian hitman dresses like Cab Calloway and drives Edsel. Honest, earnest blond guy enters in Act III to save mom, kid, and Mimi via the good-natured earthiness of his awesome wardrobe of plaid shirts. In every shot, Mimi's every facial wrinkle is lovingly emphasized.
