I remember Jackie's song "Look At Me." She sang it at the Oscars that year. Um, it was from that, uh... movie... ah ah ah... the one... um, the one where Raquel Welch plays, um, the nun... yeah, it was called "Stacked Sister." That's it.

When the film premiered on Lifetime, it did not include Curry's overdub at the end about the new version of "Look at Me." This line has surfaced in recent TV airings and on the DVD release. See more »
This was a great, entertaining movie. The setup was good and the acting was especially enjoyable. Overall, fun entertainment, and I hope they show it again on TV. The movie started out strong and continued to be so until the end, when things suddenly turned a little too emotional. The writer's should have followed the "Seinfeld Rule" -- no hugging, no crying, no learning.
