THE MAK­ING OF A HOL­LY­WOOD MADAM (1996) SEVEN, NOON, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The life of no­to­ri­ous real-life madam Heidi Fleiss (Tri­cia Leigh Fisher) is ex­plored through her re­la­tion­ship with her ul­tra-lib­eral pae­di­a­tri­cian fa­ther (Michael Gross) and highly strung mother (Cindy Pick­ett). Rather than a saucy romp, as the ti­tle might sug­gest, this is a rather glib tale of a ma­li­cious, ex­ploita­tive woman who drives her loving but mis­guided fam­ily to ruin when she in­volves her fa­ther in a fraud­u­lent scam that lands him in prison. A mildly en­ter­tain­ing but in­cred­i­bly flimsy biopic. ★★
