Is the whole thing a joke?
29 January 2007 | by (the wild frontier) – See all my reviews

There's not much I can say about this movie that hasn't already been said, but I think a scene that deserves special mention is the scene where the school slut, after failing in her attempts to get Justin into bed, wanders into her bathroom and bangs her head against the sink as hard as she can, causing blood to run down her face. That scene alone, besides being probably the funniest thing I have ever seen in a TV movie, shows how ridiculous and far-removed from reality this movie is. Any hope "Cyber Seduction" had of being taken seriously was lost after that scene.

But I have to wonder how seriously it was supposed to be taken in the first place. It's possible this was an intentionally campy movie, and the nice ladies at Lifetime didn't get the joke. My main evidence for this is that it was directed by Tom McLoughlin, who also made "Friday the 13th Part IV" (one of the jokiest of the F13 series). I suppose it's possible that Tom has Found Christ, but parts of this movie are so hilarious I can't believe he was directing it with a straight face.

There's also the fact that Kelly Lynch, who plays the crazy mom, has done nude scenes before and played a drug addict criminal in "Drugstore Cowboy." Totally hamming up her role here? Probably.

It's harder to tell the motivation of one of the two writers, Richard Kletter. Apparently this guy has written several other Lifetime movies dealing with the horrors of teen sex. Either he is a comic genius or a weird Christian version of Larry Clark. Assuming he's serious, there is no way a guy who spends this much time thinking about teenagers getting it on from a "moral" point of view is a healthy person. Like Mark Foley and Ted Haggard before him I would not be surprised if Mr. Kletter ends up in the news someday.

I would also not be surprised if this turns into a major cult classic. Get this movie on DVD. Show it to your friends. Play it on a projector during raves. It's that funny.
