the oh-no! DVD of the week: ‘Wisegal’

The description of this just gets better the longer it goes on:

Loyal to the Family. Devoted to her own. Alyssa Milano stars as Patty Montanari, a tough Brooklyn widow and mother who takes a job working for a local crime family and soon becomes romantically involved with a married mob captain (Jason Gedrick of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES). But as Patty rises in the organization’s ranks, she finds herself sinking deeper into an underworld of paranoia, betrayal and murder. Caught between the Feds, the Family and the man she loves, can she pull the trigger on the decision that may cost her everything? Academy Award® nominee James Caan (THE GODFATHER) co-stars in this acclaimed Lifetime movie inspired by the incredible true story of the woman who dared to defy New York City’s most infamous Mafia empire. From executive producer Joe Pistone – the real life Donnie Brasco.

I’m not sure which is the best part: that it’s based on a true story, or that there are Lifetime movies that are “acclaimed.” Although “Loyal to the Family. Devoted to her own” is pretty brilliant in a demented way, too.
