Hysterical Take on Fame
25 March 2003 | by (Kalamazoo, MI) – See all my reviews

DESPERATION BOULEVARD is a riot. Judy Tenuta is, naturally, very funny, but she actually shows some subtlety in her acting as well, which is a nice change of pace. The rest of the cast does a great job with good, funny material and the cameos are killer. Burt Ward, Dana Plato, and especially Erin Moran have a field-day lampooning themselves, and their bits are short but memorable. Director Greg Glienna uses small moments to make a bigger over-all impression, like a killer Girl Scout horror movie scene, or former child stars playing poker together, or even a particularly hysterical, yet tiny, bit with a waiter whom Judy's desperate character thinks is an autograph seeker. Their facial expressions alone induce out-loud laughs. Moments like these make up a movie that should be seen by everyone who enjoys well-nuanced and intelligent comedy.
