Whitesnake slut Tawny Kitaen playacts pop star in this peerlessly preposterous movie about a young man (the lumpy non-actor Lee Curreri of “Fame” fame) with a mysterious (cf. bullshit) heart condition that compels him to live out his days in a “crystal room.” Despite being behind walls made of glass – err, crystal, he enchants Tawny per his really lousy keyboard playing, to the point where she’s participating in one of the most hysterical quasi-sex scenes in cinematic history (bring your windex). Not a moment is believable, and few are forgettable. And as it is with most any movie made this decade, every frame of Crystal Heart confirms that it was made in the ’80s. Ripe for a Bad Movie Night plucking.
