Gloriously bad, 18 May 1999

I had the fortune to witness this "movie" recently and I can honestly say that it is THE worst movie I've ever seen. Yes, I said fortune, for it it is rare to see such a gloriously bad movie and I wholeheartedly enjoy the experience. I did not see the very beginning, so I had no idea who was in it, nor did I recognize the two big "stars" in it (Nielsen and Plato) when I saw them. Amazing considering how hugely popular both are [sarcastic remark #1].

I happened to catch this while living in Costa Rica. Strangely, Cinemax (Skinemax) is broadcast in San Jose, the capital city. I think it is stolen from a satellite and relayed to a broadcast station, but don't tell anyone, OK? I need my bad movies. Anyway, it seems to be the only station in English (with Spanish subtitles) and since I was going through TV withdrawal, I sat back in the vacant hotel restaurant and watched. Initially, from the topless woman and bad acting, I thought it was a low budget soft-core porn flick, but this film could never hope to aspire to such lofty categorization [sarcastic remark #2]. The acting, mainly from Danny Fendley and Dana Plato, was simply atrocious. Plus we're supposed to believe that scrawny, poodle-haired Fendley is a big action movie celebrity in this movie. Plato plays a tabloid TV reporter, intent on scooping Fendley's affair by any means, including trespassing. Nielsen plays Fendley's wife who quickly dumps him after the affair is exposed on national TV. Shortly thereafter, Nielson shows up dead and the mystery begins. Boy with that kind of plot, who needs acting? [sarcastic remark #3]

While watching this, I felt there just wasn't something right about the reporter character. This plainly unattractive yet wholesome looking woman making sleazy come-ons to this cheating jerk of a character just left me feeling odd. Then while watching the credits to identify the perpetrators of this cinematic terrorism, I finally realized the source of my unease. The reason why this bad actress gave me the willies was because she's FREAKIN' KIMBERLY FROM DIFFERENT STROKES! Somehow time has diminished this young lady's acting abilities and standards. But it seems that she can't even degrade herself properly. The 2 "love" scenes that she participates in are carbon copies of each other and are about as arousing as watching an old person negotiate stairs [sarcastic remark... OK let's just stop counting].

Don't worry moviegoers, everyone's respective bad acting seeps into even the last moments of their simplistic characters' sad little lives. Luckily, only one main character survives. I'll let you see the movie to find out who.

Seriously, if you enjoy bad movies, please make an effort to see this movie. I'm sure that Dana and Bridgitte would appreciate the royalties.
