Killing Club, The

"Thelma and Louise redux, with the added improvement of former porn-stars."
2 stars

Most obscure and boring cable flicks can be described as Movie X meets Movie B. (Example: "Die Hard" meets "Steel Magnolias") As "The Killing Club" began spinning through my DVD player my first thought was 'OK, this is "Thelma & Louise" meets...'

There was no 'meets'! It's basically just Thelma & Louise with blond cutie Julie Bowen (Happy Gilmore) in the Geena Davis role and former porn-star Traci Lords in the Sarandon!

Also known (to about eleven people) as You're Killing Me, flick offers a sweet-natured gal who casually turns to a life of man-killing after accidentally murdering her atrociously nasty boyfriend.

The former porn star doesn't exactly try to talk her out of it.

There are a few unpredicted twists along the way, and the adorable Ms. Bowen does the best she can with such derivative material...but that's hardly any sort of ringing endorsement.

Offering perhaps a bit more wit than one would expect from such a derivative cable flick, The Killing Club isn't one of the worst rehashes you'll find populating the late-night cable channels...

...but a good night's sleep would probably do you some good.
