Did You Know?


Due to conflicts in her personal life, Beth Grant was unable to reprise the role of Sissy, so the part went to Dale Dickey. Dickey appeared as a different character in Sordid Lives: The Series (2008), but she was intimately familiar with Sissy, whom she'd played in a "Sordid Lives" stage production. See more »

User Reviews

21 January 2018 | by stevenjuneSee all my reviews

This 2nd Sordid movie (third if you count the amazing series) is lacking several things; 1) Olivia Newton-John. Whose character is not even mentioned in the entire movie. 2) The opening song ("Sordid Lives...it's a bitch") was sung by a guy not Olivia Newton-John. 3) The character of Sissy Hickey was played by Dale Dickey NOT Beth Grant as in the first movie and the series. I like Dale as an actress, but Beth made the character funny and unique. Dale looked liked Sissy with flatter hair. She had some of Beth's motions down but still, the character felt incomplete. 4) There were no plates of fried chicken at Sissy's house. 5) Sissy & the girls drank soda not iced tea like in the first movie and series. 6) The living room of Sissy's house was changed-the wall where the picture of Jesus hung was torn down so you could see to the kitchen. The picture of Jesus on the wall above where Sissy sat, smoked and popped Valiums made it ironic and funny. 7) There was only one scene where Valium was used. And only Sissy took some. In the first movie/series they all ate Valium and stole them from each other like candy; Ironic and funny. 8) Dr. Eve was only in the movie in Brother Boy's dreams/visions which lost the effect and dynamic of those two characters. 9) The recycling of one liners that were funny in the first movie/series but not so much in this film; "Let's get this done before anymore shit hits the fan", "I'm not obese, it's a glandular problem", 10) Loss of irony-which made the first movie and the series unique and humorous. 11) Juanita's stories were nowhere near as funny as in the first movie/series. It wasn't a bad film. I think it it could have been a whole lot better and funnier. I would recommend the series followed by the first Sordid Lives movie. All the key elements are in place in these two. And they're hysterically funny and entertaining. Sordid Wedding seems thrown together with very weak dialogue, situations and some important and funny characters and actors missing.
