Blondes Have More Fun
Pretty blonde Cassi Thomson (as Annette) picks out a wedding dress, after her engagement to blond live-in lover Randy Wayne (as Oliver). Beautiful blonde best friend Samantha Cope (as Molly) thinks Ms. Thomson's purchase is premature. While shopping, the giggly duo receive the text story, "Wedding Thief Strikes Again - Still at Large." How quickly they will forget. Meanwhile, handsome blond Casper Van Dien (as Dayton) startles a bride-to-be by breaking and entering her home. He is picked up for speeding and we learn a woman died of strangulation as Mr. Van Dien goes to jail...
Eighteen months later, as predicted by Ms. Cope, boyfriend Wayne tells Thomson he's not really ready for marriage. He says he needs more time. Thomson's bad luck continues. She must quit her job after a sex attack from the boss. Cope invites her best girlfriend to move in and suggests Thomson make money buying a "Storage Locker" and selling the contents. After three months of non-payments, we're told these lockers are auctioned off. This turns out to be a successful business, but "Storage Locker 181" belonged to Van Dien. He gets out of jail and wants his belongings back...
This is a strange story, and difficult to rate. A serial strangler would likely receive jail time amounting to more than 18 months. There is some evidence in the script that this is a special case; for example, the killing we see may be the first victim who actually died. But, it still seems odd. Another nagging oddity is that people who work around "Storage Lockers" don't check for valuables before they are auctioned. It might help that Van Dien is very good looking, and has a jaw line to die for. He also directed. Also, co-starring girlfriends Thomson and Cope are very cute and appealing.
