Movie Info

This undistinguished drama goes no further than clichéd views about women who gain success by bedding down those who have it. Pia Zadora stars as Jerilee, just out of high school and married to a prominent Hollywood screenwriter, with her own heart-felt aspirations to get her screenplays noticed by the right producers. Her marriage fails for many reasons and once on her own, she comes to the difficult decision that she really will go nowhere fast unless she uses her sexual charms to pave the way

[A] sleazy little yarn.

If The Lonely Lady had even a shred of style and humor, it could qualify as the worst movie of the year. Unfortunately, it's not that good.

You've got to say this much for Miss Zadora: she's got spunk.

A relentlessly stupid, consistently unconvincing piece of hack work. Worse still, it's not even good, overproduced trash.

Who cares.

a poorly acted, ineptly made and nearly incoherent piece of garbage that can't even properly exploit its star, which would seem to be the primary reason for its existence.

There's a reason Pia is a Razzie icon.

    1. Jerilee: I don't suppose I'm the only one who has to fuck her way to the top.
