Picks and Pans Review: Twisted Desire
Furious at Dad's strict curfew policy, Melissa Joan Hart tricks a juvenile delinquent (Jeremy Jordan) into gunning down both Mom (Homicide's Isabella Hofmann) and Dad (Homicide's Daniel Baldwin). Then the psychopathic Valley Girl dumps the killer for a hunk named—you guessed it—Brad. Deep-sixing the perky image from her Clarissa Explains It All days, Hart sort of looks, and sort of acts, like Alicia Silverstone in this TV movie, best thought of as a patricidal Clueless. Alas, Hart does not yet have her dramatic chops down and is overshadowed by the rest of the cast, particularly Jordan, who is convincing as her dimwitted coconspirator.
