Joyce crumples up the note from Mom, throws it in the fireplace, leans on the mantelpiece for a moment, then pushes herself away so hard that the entire fireplace shudders, causing a plant on it to shake, and revealing the entire fireplace wall to be a prop. See more »

PEER PRESSURE - 1950's style (my rating is ***)
31 August 2000 | by machineelSee all my reviews

SUSANNE SIDNEY as "Dolly Crane" - see the pun in the name - steals the movie with her misplaced values (prides herself on teaching new girls how to steal). Would I be going too far to suggest there is a subliminal lesbian sado-masochist message in this campy romp? If ever I saw Freudian images, it was Dolly constantly playing with her knife, throwing it (which opened the credits) and gouging a tree while the "new" girl is ordered to make a date with another's girl boyfriend.
