It's time the world heard her side of the story.
17 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The funny and talented Jane Lynch plays Blanche Monroe, an out of work soap actress. When her stepdaughter is discovered by a Hollywood agent Blanche's jealousy drives her to the brink of some very clever on screen moments. A cute, modern and funny and twist on the Snow White fairytale, 'Memoirs of an Evil Stepmother' is a dark campy comedy about our culture's obsession with youth and beauty. Chicago alumni Jane Lynch who wrote and starred in the very funny award-winning play "Oh Sister, My Sister!" is one great talent to watch out for and for a first time director Cherien Dabis shows quite a promising future. A fun short little film worth seeing if you can get in on a compilation video.
