Storyline

Retired singing star, Angela Arden, heads a dysfunctional family. Her husband, filmmaker Sol Sussman, hates her and has a kissy relationship with his nubile daughter, Edith. Angela carries on an affair with Tony Parker, a lounge lizard, who sleeps with both Edith and her brother, Lance, but not before Angela plots to murder Sol when he cuts off her allowance. Bootsie Carp, the family maid loyal to Sol, is on to Angela, but the diva works quickly and poisons Sol. Edith suspects foul play and wants Lance's help in proving mom's guilt. Lance, who loves his mother deeply, is conflicted. Will Edith succeed? Does love lurk somewhere? And what about Angela's long dead sister, Barbara? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Better than Psycho Beach Party
20 January 2003 | by (Salt Lake City, UT) – See all my reviews

Just saw the opening night at the Sundance Film Festival. Those who have seen Charles Busch's previous adaptation of his own play Psycho Beach Party will find themselves in familiar territory, but Die Mommie Die benefits from Busch's larger and more central role that better showcases his talents. The supporting cast is also great, and it's smaller size allows each character to be more sharply drawn. If you were even a little distracted and amused by Psycho Beach Party while channel surfing late at night you will REALLY enjoy Die Mommie Die, a real work of filmmaking rather than feeling like filmed theater.

As far as the premiere, the audience loved it. Unfortunately Charles Busch wasn't there, but it was great to see Jason Priestly, Natasha Lyonne, Frances Conroy, and Stark Sands come up for the Q & A afterwards. Frances Conroy is SO nice and even let me take my picture with her (big Six Feet Under fan) while Jason Priestly looked great and completely recovered from his accident. Natasha and Stark seemed to have become friends in real life when I saw them in the parking lot afterwards. Sundance is great that way, everyone's so laid back and informal at the small screenings.

See this movie if you get the chance!
