Good Intentions

Set for a 2009 release, the independent film Good Intentions is notable for a cast of popular culture icons from various genres who meet for a film that will entice the interest of fans from across the spectrum. It stars Luke Perry, who played Dylan McKay in Beverly Hills, 90210, Jon Gries, who starred in the modern cult classic, Napoleon Dynamite, Grammy-Award winning country diva LeAnn Rimes, and none other than one of TNA's Beautiful People, Angelina Love.

A comedy film, its plot promises to be quite original, centering around Etta Milford (played by Elaine Hendrix from The Parent Trap) who is inspired by PBS' Antiques Roadshow to enter a world of crime: she wants those damned antiques, so she can sell them and get rich. But her motivation is not greed: it is to have money to fund her children's college fund. In her new life of crime, she realizes that she isn't quite cut-out to be America's Most Wanted woman, being swindled by con-men and criminals herself along the way.

She realizes she needs street-smarts to deal with the criminals who swindled her, and turns to the smartest street women of them all for advice: strippers. But these are not ordinary strippers: they are fountains of knowledge in a world of chaos. The name of their strip club? Shangri-La.

Cue Angelina Love, who plays a Stripper/Jedi Master of sorts, educating the hapless Etta in the ways of another type of Force. Love, is no stranger to acting, having played a sexy zombie in Enter...Zombie King.

The first feature film directed by Jim Issa, it is produced by Richard Sampson of Shadowlight Pictures based out of WCW's old home, Atlanta, GA. Sampson has said in interviews that Good Intentions "is a comedy with a heart, a Great Southern Story" that will nonetheless "resonate with a lot of people." Jim Crockett couldn't have put it better himself.
