Tori Spelling good actor? Hardly.
29 April 2012 | by jstrahan1See all my reviews

In my opinion, this film doesn't reach the "so bad it's good" level that Plan 9 from Outer Space does. In reference to an earlier reviewer: anybody who says Tori Spelling CAN act is nuts. "You'll find yourself laughing at the absurd, over-the-top acting of all characters involved. Tori Spelling's bad acting is to be expected, but it's an extra terrible masterpiece in Mother, May I Sleep with Danger. Her canoe paddling scene will have you in stitches as you watch her struggle to use the paddles. Ivan Sergei is laughable as the crazy boyfriend with a penchant for danger. Her mother (you know, the one she's asking if it's okay to sleep with danger) is awkward and annoying." Though planned to be released in theaters, it couldn't find a distributor willing to show it and had to be shown on TV. That should tell you something.
