Got a minute to spare? Need to feel better about yourself?
Tune into Lifetime Movie Network today at 12 noon ET for a classic film in the made-for-TV docudrama genre. Alyssa Milano stars in “Casualties of Love: The ‘Long Island Lolita’ Story”, the televised movie about the Joey Buttafuoco/Amy Fisher disaster. Acid washed jeans? Check! Zubaz pants? Check again! Long Island claw-bangs? You got ‘em!
Jack Scalia is appropriately sleazy as Long Island Letch Joey Buttafuoco.
Do you remember the night this originally aired on network TV? If memory serves me correctly, Drew Barrymore’s standout flick “The Amy Fisher Story” also made its debut the same night. I think my high school friends and I had a Sunday night viewing party. Trashtastic!
For extra giggles (read: gags), check out the muscle shirts and gold chains Jack Scalia wears throughout the program. If the real Joey sported those gems, I can see why Amy couldn’t resist parking her car in his garage (or is it the other way around?). Either way, bleeecccchhhh.
You may be unemployed, but at least you’re not dating Joey Buttafuoco.
