Review: 'Flowers in the Attic' wilts for want of fun
Review: 'Flowers in the Attic' wilts for want of fun

It should come as no surprise that Lifetime's adaptation of "Flowers in the Attic" is terrible. Of course it's terrible! The book was terrible! Rife with clunky dialogue, ridiculous characters and ludicrous plot twists. It was so terrible you could not put it down. Child imprisonment! Two kinds of evil mothers! And, oh my sainted aunt, incest! Loving, consensual incest! It was "Blue Lagoon" meets "Sybil" in the days before becoming a vampire replaced teen sex as your mama's worst nightmare. None of which this "Flowers" gets. The problem is not that it's just terrible, but that it's also no fun. At all. WINTER TV...
