G. Gordon Liddy and Jill Schoelen in a very bizarre juvenile version of "Rear Window"
18 April 2010 | by lazarilloSee all my reviews

I almost never review movies like this since, despite its PG-13 rating, this is definitely a kid's movie. But it is actually a very weird and subversive kid's movie, not so much in the story-line as in the casting. A layabout teenager and his dim-witted friend "Shoup" are enlisted to take over his workaholic little brother's paper route. While delivering the papers, they run across a man who the protagonist recognizes as a notorious drug dealer who is believed to be dead. Nobody believes him though so the movie turns into a juvenile version of "Rear Window" as the hero tries to get evidence to prove it.

There are two main points of interest to this movie. The first is the presence of actress Jill Schoelen. Schoelen was a very appealing young actress in the late 80's and early 90's who appeared in a string of superior horror movies--"The Stepfather", "Cutting Class", "Popcorn", and "When a Stranger Calls Back". Unfortunately, whenever she stepped out of the horror genre she was usually relegated to much more bland "love interest" roles like the one she plays here. She may as well have been credited as "set decoration" in this particular movie.

But the movie also features in the role of the drug dealer, G. Gordon Liddy. Yes, THE G. Gordon Liddy--the former Watergate conspirator who once tried to arrange to have a hit put on himself (worried, I guess, that he couldn't keep his own mouth shut). In the 90's Liddy had a brief career as a right-wing radio talk-show host and he got in trouble for advising his listeners how to shoot federal agents in the head (this was right before the Oklahoma City bombing). I still like him better than Rush Limbaugh though, and if this movie is any indication, he should have had some future in acting. In any event, it was an inspired bit of casting putting this nut-job ex-CIA lawman in the role of a notorious drug dealer. This isn't a great movie, of course, but it's currently available on VHS on Amazon for .99 (cheaper than blank tape!). See it for G. Gordon and Jill.
