This comedy takes shots at the Amy Fisher headlines from 1992 and '93, the "People's Court" TV show, and ultra-conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh. Fisher, tagged by the press as "Long Island Lolita" after she shot the wife of her lover, Joey Buttafuoco, was on trial at the time of this movie's release. Note the character names: Lolita Fisher (the defendant), Grace VanMoanin (a tip of the hat to the character of Grace Van Owen from "L.A. Law"), make-believe "Citizen's Court" host Doug Mary-Elizabeth-Ellen (after Doug Llewelyn on "People's Court"), and Rush Nimrod (after Rush Limbaugh), to name a few.
