In a catty but defanged satire of the ladies country-club set, the despised head of the PTA keels over at the annual luncheon. It seems the crab-filled croissant she was nibbling on was crammed with poison.

The only remotely interesting facet of this movie is its large cast of familiar TV faces: Robin Mattson, Morgan Fairchild, Julia Duffy, Edie McClurg, Joan Van Ark, Maria Gibbs, Ed Marinaro, Jane Carr, Cindy Williams and Doug Barr. Nearly all of them are demeaned by participating in this weary romp.
