Crime never pays
1 March 2006 | by (EASTBOURNE, ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

A film about the kidnapping of a tiny show pony that goes wrong of course. I bought this for the Shelley Long content alone. It was not a particularly funny film and I did find the family that owned the pony grated on me but it was all good clean cut fun. Shelley Long though a different kettle of fish. Hilarious tottering around on those high heeled shoes looking like she was going to fall over any minute. And that short mini skirt and black stocking and her change of hair every 5 minutes she was hilarious. When she sings my sweet potato pie with her side kick great. The best bit though is when she speaks with the phony Southern Accent you can't help enjoying it.
