Storyline

April has just graduated from an exclusive Southern college. She's just returned home to her family mansion to prepare for her semi-arranged marriage to "the right man", a man approved by April's father, a Senator. During a trip to the local fair, April meets Perry, the kind of man she always wanted but never knew. Her parents are aghast, as Perry is exactly the kind of man they don't want her associating with. April must reconcile the expectations of her family and her fiancée with the passion she feels for Perry. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

campy and mysterious, not to be taken as serious
11 April 2001 | by azefferSee all my reviews

It wasn't so bad. The leads were attractive. Richard Tyson is a real sexpot, and Sherilyn Fenn as the pretty blonde at times looks like Madonna from her "True Blue" period (remember the slicked back platinum hair?). Louise Fletcher is creepy as usual. It was strange to see Kristy McNichol, who I think of as the cool tomboy or wholesome girl playing a trashy, slutty drifter. Although I actually think she pulls it off. Definitely a late night movie.
