Two stars

This is the miracle mop movie.  Dianne Ladd plays a character named Grandma Ghost.  I thought of you.  I remember when you used to play violin, by the open window, a piece of yourself left like a mean dog to guard the door.  One day soon we’ll have to hit the road, purchase candy necklaces from Last Chance fill-stations and dig a receding America.  This movie’s alright but the trailer’s better.  You watch that trailer and you’re like, “Damn, that looks like a sick-ass J. Law revenge pic!”  It is and it isn’t.
