Sparks fly between her and her contractor Vince (Marcus Rosner), and he soon fulfills Laura’s forbidden dreams. But when Laura decides to end their affair, Vince’s builds a secret room in Laura’s home where he can keep her all to himself.

From Straight A’s to XXX earns money for tuition on Lifetime!

From Straight As to XXX Lifetime

Lifetime is bringing the porn biopics to tv, a genre I didn’t think they would start covering, but here we are. From Straight A’s to XXX(originally titled just From Straight A’s, but Lifetime knows that we want XXX!) is the story of a college student who made extra money as a porn star until everyone on campus found out and then started acting like jerks who totally weren’t downloading all her films the second they came out. Let’s see, she’s Miriam Weeks who worked under the stage name Belle Knox, now let’s totally innocently Google her name at work and OMG I’m totally fired again! Damn you, Lifetime! Somehow this is your fault and not my own…

Inspired by a true story, “From Straight A’s to XXX” tells the story of Miriam Weeks (Haley Pullos, “General Hospital”), a college freshman at Duke University who turns to porn in order to pay for her tuition expenses. But when a male student discovers who she is and exposes her secret, Miriam is faced with an onslaught of death threats and cyber-bullying. The film also stars Judd Nelson (“The Breakfast Club”), Sasha Clements (“Majority Rules!”) and Jessica Lu (“Awkward”).

Huh, I guess it isn’t another Vin Diesel XXX movie. That’s a positive in my book!

From Straight A’s to XXX stars Haley Pullos(The Misadventures of the Dunderheads), Judd Nelson(The Transformers: The Movie), Imali Perera(November Christmas), Peter Graham-Gaudreau(Pumpkin Pie Wars), Garrett Black(Distortion), Jessica Lu(Skirtchasers), and Jacky Lai(Silent Hill: Revelation 3D). It’s directed by Vanessa Parise (#PopFan) and written by Anne-Marie Hess (Britney Ever After)

From Straight A’s to XXX premieres Saturday, February 11th on Lifetime!

James Franco returns to Lifetime as a High School Lover!

High School Lover Lifetime

I’m a stalker not a lover


And by High School Lover, we mean he’s a dad worried because a creepy older famous guy is dating his high school daughter! Can James Franco stop this true love where age is just a number before things get 1000% Lifetime? Probably not too quickly, or there wouldn’t be a movie!

James Franco (“Why Him?”) returns to Lifetime to executive produce and star in the new thriller, “High School Lover” (#HighSchoolLover), featuring Paulina Singer (“Orange is the New Black”), Francois Arnaud (“The Borgias”) and Julia Jones (“Longmire”).

When 17-year-old Kelly (Singer) hits the town for a wild time with her friends, she isn’t expecting to meet Hollywood’s hottest “it” guy, Christian Booth (Arnaud). After a night of intense flirting, Kelly assumes that she’ll never hear from him again, but she is happily surprised when Christian begins texting her. Despite their age difference, Kelly is smitten with her new crush. Even after Kelly’s father, Rick (Franco), discovers their relationship and forbids Kelly from seeing Christian, nothing will stop her from being with him. But soon Kelly discovers that Christian’s adoration is turning into a dangerous obsession as the truth about his past slowly comes to light. Produced by Elysium Bandini Studios, Franco executives produces along with Vince Jolivette. The script is written by Amber Coney (“Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?”) and Jessica Dube (Smack) and Jerell Rosales (“Life in Black and White”) directs the movie.

Thanks to that blurb for doing most of my job with the cast listing, though I’ll also point out that Lana Condor from the latest X-Men movie is listed in the cast as well. Franco was last doing Lifetime stuff with that lesbian vampire remake of Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? that I should probably get around to finishing the review of. I swear I’ll do the big list of Lifetime films that I need to cover soon!

High School Lover premieres Saturday, February 4th on Lifetime!

Open Marriage opens the problems on Lifetime!

Open Marriage

Is this an open marriage or a square dancing session?


I love reading relationship subreddits because of the piles and piles of drama, but one thing that has become a very common problem in recent years is people opening up their relationship and leading it to ruin. (Before I go on, yes, sometimes things work out, but we’re obviously not talking about those rare occasions!) Often, it looks like one partner is pressuring the other into it to get some guilt-free cheating, which isn’t really an open relationship nor respectful to your partner. Occasionally, those stories then flip while the one who was eager for the open relationship strikes out while their reluctant partner is bombarded with hot new partners. Basically, it’s drama city, full of ridiculous and cool stories, and add that to the mix of everything else going on in the relationship forums and…wow!

The next logical step is for these relationships to show up on Lifetime, and here they are with Open Marriage! Let’s bring on the drama…

Becca and Ron’s marriage is in a rut; it’s been months since they’ve been intimate. When their friends Mindy and Max tell them they’ve been experimenting with an open marriage and it’s done wonders, Becca and Ron are reluctant to the idea. But they can’t deny their curiosity and the two couples switch partners for a night of wild pleasure. The spark in Becca and Ron’s marriage has been reignited, and the more they experiment, the more their passion is fueled. But as they spiral into a world where anything goes, heartbreak and betrayal soon follow. As Becca and Ron’s marriage gets worse, a stranger secretly watches them, luring them away from each other. It’s only when their marriage reaches its breaking point that the stalker makes their presence known and paints a twisted fantasy that can only end in bloodshed.

Open marriage betrayal and a stalker who is obviously one of the people in the other couple. It can only be Lifetime!

Open Marriage stars Nikki Leigh (Unlucky Charms), Tilky Jones (Never Back Down), Kelly Dowdle (Big Momma’s House 2), Jason Tobias (The Adventures of Avery & Pete), and Debra Wilson (Knight to F4). It is written by Jason Byers (His only credit) and directed by Sam Irvin (Deadly Skies), and was formally known as To Have and To Kill

Open Marriage premieres Saturday, January 14th on Lifetime!

Under the Bed brings the stalker inside the house on Lifetime!

Under the Bed Lifetime

Just when you thought you were safe from all your stalkers by going inside, one of them has to up the game and live under your bed! That’s the horrifying premise of Lifetime’s latest flick, Under the Bed. Yes, this actually happened in real life and not in the stories you tell at campfires! We all know that truth is stranger than fiction, but then fiction then gets an SVU episode as well as a Lifetime flick, and here we are. This one looks spooktacularly creepy, and has the potential to be even scarier than if monsters or aliens were running around in the house.

What makes this worth knowing about is the director is one of the directors of the original Blair Witch Project, Daniel Myrick, and if the preview is indicative of the whole film, there will be several scenes of creepy POV night footage of the stalker madman just to make everything even more disturbing.

Under the Bed stars Hannah New (Maleficent), Beverly D’Angelo (Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay), Pat Healy (Home Alone 3), Ryan O’Nan (Albion: The Enchanted Stallion), Alexis Krause (Baby Booty Camp), and Toni Garrn (You Are Wanted). It’s directed by Daniel Myrick (The Blair Witch Project), who also scripts it from a story by Richard Halpern (W.M.D.)

Under the Bed premieres Saturday, January 7th on Lifetime!
