Hokey and jokey, this is a very faithful examination of an early 1990s case in Houston, Texas wherein an overagressive mother tried to ensure her daughter would make the cheerleading squad by hiring a hitman to kill one of the other girls and that girl's mother. Ultimately, the story is played for camp, which mostly works (thank God it's not one of those Amy Fisher movies!) on the back of Holly Hunter's titular big-haired mom. Shot mostly at the actual locations where the deeds were done, the movie gets its real kick when it comes time for everyone to sell their rights to Hollywood... with one writer remarking she has "Holly Hunter" in mind for the lead.
