Picks and Pans Review: Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?
(NBC, Mon., Sept. 30, 9 p.m. ET)
Why not? You’ve slept with everyone else. A loving mother (Lisa Baines) promises her daughter (Tori Spelling) that she will not interfere in her personal life. But she draws the line when young Laurel falls in love with a pathological liar, credit-card scamster and murderer, played by Ivan Sergei. The film features shoddy police work, scenes in a bar and a loving mother who moves heaven and earth to find her abducted daughter after she is carried off to a cabin in the woods by the charming psychopath. The first truly hopeless made-for-TV film of the new season, Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? is most memorable because in Sergei the producers have somehow managed to find someone who is less talented than Tori Spelling.
