The Devil is a woman! She is on the run and being pursued by God's "chaser", (who is an ex-lover coincidently). The chase drops her in the lap of an ongoing birthday party where shy Maggie is on a blind date with equally shy David. As the Devil inhabits Maggie's body the fun starts. First she proves that there is no one that she cannot offend, most especially her girlfriends when she takes their boyfriends upstairs for some killer (no shit) sex. As the bodys pile up the chaser arrives. Lovers tiff doesn't begin to go into the arguing that ensues as the plot reveals that the devil is pissed because she is jealous of her boyfriends over-enthusiastic flirting. Every woman in the film wants to pound our chaser into pulp as his obnoxiousness escalates. Also not to be messed are the crop of Nuns with rocket launchers and semi-automatic weaponry. Quick trips in and out of deep space, bodies in the bathtub, and restaurants where the food attack the patrons. A must see, must rent, and must own for every happy couple —Tari <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Breaks Movie Rule Number One...
...which is that if "nothing interesting happens in the first fifteen minutes, forget it." And this movie unfortunately, is slow, ponderous, and incredibly plodding right up until the Devil possesses former wallflower Maggie and turns her into...well, what you'd expect in any female incarnation of the Devil NOT being played by Linda Blair. Wild 80's hairstyle and all. Even if it's a 1990 film. Sure, it's a dumb movie...over-acted, weird script, dumb plot, but...once Maggie becomes "The Devil" and the "Chaser" (who not only has some great one-liners ["Yeah, I met God. He's a lot shorter in person."] and also has the great running joke of his trenchcoat that seems to have at least one of everything in it somewhere...blow-up doll, six-pack of beer, roll of toilet paper, who knows what else...) starts coming after her, it turns out to be pretty darn funny. While the "Franks and Beans" joke is pretty lame and badly set up, what immediately follows (the "Rambo Nuns") is a riot. Not worth killing yourself to get a copy of, but worth a look if you're in a weird mood.
