Storyline

Newlywed Laurie Wade finds her marriage, and eventually the rest of her life, shattered by her deep-rooted psychotic behavior. She goes from brief "short-circuits" to overtly murderous behavior. The film never tries to explain the cause of her mental collapse (except for a hint or two) but instead takes us into her frightening state of mind. Written by Jonathan A. Cullum

Not the event from the song
2 November 2009 | by mjcgigSee all my reviews

I don't remember a lot from this movie, it was fairly routine acting and not exceptional, but even I know that the true story (if it even was based on a true story) did not inspire a song. This movie, while good, was NOT based on the song I Don't Like Mondays. The song I Don't Like Mondays was based on Brenda Ann Spencer's 1979 killing of two (a principal and a janitor) at an elementary school in San Diego. In real life, Brenda Ann Spencer was 16 at the time of the killing, unlike the character Valerie portrayed who was old enough to be married. There are several other differences, which a person can view anywhere else on the web first before posting incorrect information.
