"I'll Open You up like a Can of Tomato Soup"
24 April 2001 | by MarkSee all my reviews

Excellent movie, I just wish it was available on any format. The above summary is a line in the movie that I remember the most. Spoken by Bunny herself. I can't wait to see this movie again. If you like Bette, you'll like this movie.
