“A Made-For-TV Movie Event!”

Remember when stuff like this “ripped from the headlines!” Al Pacino Phil Spector movie was the exclusive province of network television, and you could freely shout “CAREER SLUMP” at all involved because it was airing on the same channel as “Talking Hamster, MD” and “Mall Dash ’86?” Now, since this nonsense is on Showtime HBO, we have to pretend like there’s some kind of merit going on. There isn’t. Someone just decided saggy Al Pacino plus wigs equals ratings. Wig that fucker up, son! We’re up against Erik Estrada’s “Chupacabra Versus The Alamo” tonight!

I did not fabricate that last title.
