Ruth Landers has been producing movies as vehicles for her beautiful singing, dancing and acting daughters, Audrey and Judy, together and separately. The results have not been so pretty.
Two lamentable Landers showcases premiered on home video in 1991, Judy's bombastic political satire CLUB FED and Audrey's CALIFORNIA CASANOVA (actually the older of the two, bearing a 1989 copyright date). The nicest thing that can be said about CALIFORNIA CASANOVA is that it makes CLUB FED look
like Moliere. It's a dismal melange of cliches old and new, music, melodrama and slapstick, completely uninvolving and ineffective.
