Tagline: Hollywood...It's a dirty town but someone has to do it!
Plot: IN THEATRES: OCTOBER 31, 2003 (LIMITED)
Angela Arden (Charles Busch) is a former cabaret singer whose career has long since hit the skids and crashed to an abrupt halt. Her marriage to producer Sol Sussman is rapidly heading the way of her career, but with Sol unwilling to agree to a divorce Angela gets busy with a bottle of arsenic and terminates the marriage in a less-than-legal manner. Now free to carry on her illicit affair with hot young stud Tony (Jason Priestley), Angela first has to deal with a suspicious daughter, Edith (Natasha Lyonne), and equally suspicious family maid Bootsie (Francis Conroy). Son Lance also plays a crucial role, especially when it turns out that both he and Edith are also bedding hot young stud Tony. The antics speed along, building up to the comedic climax of DIE MOMMIE DIE!
First-time director Mark Rucker has successfully created a camp classic by working closely with his talented star and screenwriter Charles Busch. Busch gloriously hams it up for the cameras throughout, delivering a constant barrage of pithy one-liners. Priestley, Lyonne, and Sands provide deliciously silly support throughout, culminating in a movie that resembles a version of FAR FROM HEAVEN produced by trashy cult director John Waters.
