TV announcer makes a bargain with the Devil to lose weight.
An aspiring TV announcer makes a bargain with the Devil in order to lose weight.
I've been looking for something about this movie for years and I'm glad to find it. Now to find it for sale at a reasonable price.
I agree that "Devil's Food" is mostly pretty silly except for the element that should be its main point. The television industry's use of near-glamorous actresses to read us the news is both hilarious and sickening—and it is portrayed wonderfully here.
(The credibility of sexy female TV announcers may very well have improved over the past twenty years; I don't know. I stopped relying on well painted and plasticized ladies who kept right on smiling while describing the scene of a horrible accident.)
So, how does Suzanne Somers come away from her bargain with the Devil? I'll not tell!
