True Crime
Mary Giordano is a bright, intelligent student who goes to a catholic school. She also has a addiction to mystery novels and detective magazines (hence the title of the movie), which inspire her to do her own detective work. When she starts snooping around on the case of a murderer of teenage girls, it gets her in hot water with her mentor Detective Jerry Gunn. But it also starts a team up with police cadet Tony Campbell. The two work together to find the murderer. But the closer Mary gets to solving the murder, the more danger she puts herself in of being the next victim.


Alicia Silverstone: Teen sleuth RELEASED TO VIDEO IN 1995/1996 and written & directed by Pat Verducci, "True Crime" (aka “Dangerous Kiss”) is a mystery/crime/teen/romance starring Alicia Silverstone as a Catholic school senior in California who befriends a police cadet (Kevin Dillon) to solve a case of serial killings of young women. Their investigations lead them to a traveling carnival. Bill Nunn plays the girl’s detective friend and the cadet’s boss. This came out right after Alicia’s breakthrough flicks “The Crush” (1993) and “Clueless” (1995) and, while entertaining for what it is, it pales by comparison. The main problem isn’t the cast, locations or excellent percussion-oriented score, but rather the script; and, more specifically, who the killer turns out being. With just a couple imaginative tweaks this could’ve been a very satisfying teen mystery à la Nancy Drew, but with considerable edge. Still, Silverstone makes it agreeable, along with the other highlights noted. If you like those other two flicks, this is a must. THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour, 34 minutes and was shot in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, CA. GRADE: B-
