Playing a thoroughly unpleasant character, Garner, who also coproduced, somewhat overdoes Laura's initial phoniness and her overriding shrillness. That someone, nay, anyone, would become so psychotically preoccupied by butter carving is part of the joke. When she discovers that her husband, whom she once regarded as worthy of high office, has cheated on her with a stripper, she sweeps it under the rug of her artistic ambitions.
Wilde lives up to her name as the go-for-broke exotic dancer as dim as she is unlucky, while the rest of the cast, excepting the dignified Shahidi, works in bright-eyed caricature mode.
