Watch that wife
24 January 2010 | by ctomvelu1See all my reviews

Donald O'Connor plays a retired puppeteer who is asked to perform on a nostalgia TV show. He is married to a woman half his age (Pat Charbonneau), who introduces him to a young man from her weekly acting class (Zach Galligan). The youth helps the old puppeteer spruce up his rusty act for the TV special. The wife may be cheating, possibly with her acting coach, and Galligan and the lonely O'Connor form a special bond, almost like father and son. No surprises here, as this follows the same plot as dozens of ventriloquist dummy horror movies. not to mention the PUPPETMASTER series. But it is worth watching for Charbonneau, in real life a lesbian who always brought an edgy level to her film and TV roles. The aged O'Connor, with his hair dyed dark brown, is at best bland.
