Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is a charming and gentle school teacher with one bad quality. She cannot stand bad manners, and if she see’s someone is guilty, she won’t hesitate to blow their brains out. Things are going along smoothly until she meets and falls for the local sheriff (James Bedge Dale) who is catching on to who is committing all the killings around time and tries to get her to stop. But when they go after her elementary school kids, Miss Meadows isn’t about to let that go down.

This is a very strange film. It’s very, very quirky, and is certainly a very dark comedy. But there’s something so outrageous about the whole thing, that it’s fascinating to watch. I don’t know what prompted Katie Holmes to take this role, as she had to know it was not going to bring her a lot of attention, but I imagine it was a great deal of fun to do. The town and the sets look like something out of Pleasantville or Leave It To Beaver, but Katie’s grace and charm is such a contrast to her unflinching killing that it is absurd in a good way. If you’re a fan of dark comedies, this is a really good one. I can imagine a lot of people will not understand it, and will be off put by the whole story line, yet those who can get the joke will enjoy this very unusual adventure through absurdity. Katie really does a great job in a most incredible role. I can recommend this to those who love the silly. It’s a very unusual movie and one that’s a lot of fun if you just go with it.
