A young woman who seduces rich men in order to rob them is harrassed by an neighbour obsessed with his estranged daughter. Purporting to be film noir, this dismal straight to DVD effort is really nothing more than a deeply substandard stalker movie. A very young Uma Thurman is lovely to look at but is obviously taking her first faltering steps into cinema and clearly does not yet have the confidence to carry a film. The direction is clumsy and amateurish, the sound so badly recorded and mixed that the background traffic is often all you can hear and the cinematographer seems to think that "noir" means "pitch black". As for the simplistic plot, it often contains nothing more than the love interest wandering around meeting people that having nothing to do with the story. One of these, Steve Buscemi, the fellow "star" of the film brings the only glimpse of quality but he is only in it for a couple of minutes and his character, like the entire supporting cast, is utterly irrelevant. The entire thing is so amateurish it seems obvious that it was little more than a student project that was only released to cash in on the subsequent fame of the actors involved. Not only that, it's a student project that deserved a bit, fat "F".

Uma is beautiful to look at, but the remainder of the film is pretty dreadful.

Kiss Daddy Goodnight
Starring: Uma Thurman, Paul Dillon, and Paul Richards
Director: Peter Ily Huemer

Laura (Thurman) is a teenaged model who augments her meager earnings by picking up wealthy men at gigs and art galleries, drugging them, and then stealing and selling valuable art objects from their homes. It's a nice living until she becomes the love object of a crazy old man (Richards) who will stop at nothing to make her his and his alone.

"Kiss Daddy Goodnight" is one of the dullest movies I've ever sat through. While the characters and acting are appropriate for the film-noir movie the filmmakers were trying to make, the glacial pace and unfocused story is not. It's not until about the halway point that any sort of menace or threat to Laura starts to develope, but what little tension and excietment this generates in the film quickly evaporates when the attention is shifted to the go-nowhere storyline of Laura's small-time thief, wanna-be musician friend's efforts to start a new band. The film would have been slow-moving enough without that pointless, plot, amd it becomes downright glacial in pace when it gets added to the mix.

By the time the film gets focused and gets interesting--in the last 15 or so minutes--most viewers will already have noddded off.

"Kiss Daddy Goodnight" is a film that can safely be ignored by everyone but Uma Thurman fans on the magnitude of the stalker who persues her character in the film. I promise you, watching the shadows creep across the sidewalk as the sun moves in the sky is more interesting than this film. It's obscurity is well deserved.
