Critical Rating: AAA
This is an unusual case of a good comedy with a clever script that is almost done in by the laying down of a blaring music track that almost sinks the show. It's done in the Police Squad style, with one of the routines (Mr. Twice, etc.) lifted bodily from one of the tv episodes. Leanna Foxxx, who displays a never-before-seen flair for satirical comedy, plays a totally dumb broad in the Desiree Cousteau tradition. Wayne Summers is the son of Randy West and Crimson - a good trick since Wayne's older than she is. Wayne gets shot while on a beer run, which does not come as a surprise since he walks out of the house with a bullseye pinned to his back. Eventually, Leanna solves the whodunnit, but not really. There are lots of laughs along the way, but as I said, you will have to strain to hear the dialogue in some scenes. Veteran director John T. Bone makes each of the action scenes move nicely with a variety of camera angles, and there's an enthusiasm on the part of the players that is all-too-often missing. I call your attention in particular to the Cameo/Dominique/Leanna threesome and to the Crimson/Tom Chapman duo. I've never seen Crimson look better, even when she was Jacqueline. A recommended feature with an important caveat re: the sound.
