Fun to have these pros together
24 June 2002 | by (King George, VA, USA) – See all my reviews

Sure, the subject matter is grisly. You can still enjoy the movie for an entirely different reason. The movie (originally in the US), played on CBS, and united it's 70s sitcom queens for the first time. Virtually every year throughout the 70s, Moore and Stapleton were against each other (often one beating the other) for the Best Lead Actress in a comedy series Emmy award. So there's some campy wicked fun in the idea of Moore doing away with Stapleton once and for all!
