Wonderland (2003)

“Okay Bill, I’m gonna tell you a story. It’s a story called ‘Wonderland’. Wonderland’s the house everyone on the whole mountain hope’s would burn down. ” – John Holmes

Number of Times Seen – Twice (15 Feb 2011 and 24 Oct 2021)

Brief Synopsis – As the police investigate a brutal crime scene, they keep coming back to one suspect who happens to be a porn star.

My Take on it – Interesting story that is presented in a truly horrible fashion. The cuts are very quick here and things jump around far too much. The best thing about this film tho is its stellar cast with Val Kilmer, Kate Bosworth, Dylan McDermott, Josh Lucas, Lisa Kudrow, Eric Bogosian and Ted Levine all giving solid performances despite the script being a mess.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the movie, Val Kilmer (as John Holmes) wears a chain around his neck that holds a ring. The ring was the actual wedding band that John Holmes gave his wife, Sharon, when they got married in 1965. Sharon loaned it to Val to give him good luck on the movie. When the movie was over, Sharon then gave the ring to Dawn Schiller. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
