MOTHER, MAY I SLEEP WITH DANGER? DOUBLE FEATURE REVIEWED
“Mother, May I Sleep With Danger” gets the double feature treatment. While the original Lifetime TV movie became a cult favorite, the James Franco re-imagining shows how much modern culture poisons everything. What should’ve been a TV movie that had been long forgotten became a thing of nostalgic fascination. It’s how Schezuan sauce got regurgitated onto the public and people started wearing fanny packs again. People are obsessed with reliving things they missed.
It’s irony for the sake of clamoring onto bandwagons that barely existed. From there, James Franco tried to put his spin on it. What resulted was a Mother May I Sleep with Danger kicked up a notch. But, how do you keep adding onto things sullied by basic cable and nostalgic leeches? It’s a fascinating double feature, but it still remains a trifle. Do with that what you will.
