Storyline

Washed up child star Gloria Green thinks her life can't any worse when she finds herself kidnapped by a deranged stalker and held captive with her biggest fan, Dawnee, who seems intent on making Gloria relive the past she's tried to forget. As the two hostages butt heads, Gloria's hapless assistant, Cheryl, tries to track down her missing boss, enlisting the help of the incompetent and dismissive police force. When Cheryl discovers that Gloria has been kidnapped, she alerts Gloria's manager, Al, who rather than save Gloria decides to sensationalize the event in order to reignite Gloria's acting career. As Al and the studios work on a deal, Cheryl tries to save Gloria, and the police... milk the limelight of the press. Gloria and Dawnee have started to bond in the confines of the basement, all that stands in the way of their budding friendship and Gloria's comeback is the deranged stalker who has a plan of his own...

Odd little indie is an unexpected treat.
15 September 2018 | by RiskeyDSee all my reviews

I can understand why this was an apparent direct-to-video movie. It portrays Hollywood as the cesspool it is, but in an oddly affectionate way. It proudly wears its political incorrectness on its sleeve and some of the more sophomoric humor doesn't work, but the result is strangely big-hearted. A washed-up TV actress who is more trouble than she's worth is kidnapped and her handlers see this as a way to get her name back in the spotlight. It showcases fine performances from the two leads, Heather McComb and Stephanie Hodes. (For some reason IMDB lists a couple of the bit players and hardly any of the number of well-known actors in the cast.) McComb really anchors the film and Hodes is a delight. Jillian Bell was more restrained than I've ever seen her (especially in a comedy) and just when I wondered where Nip/Tuck's John Hensley had gone, here he is. As I watched, I was thinking the plot was predictable, but it had a few surprises in store for me. All in all, a good diversion on a rainy afternoon.
