Rosalie Goes Shopping ★★★ 1989 (PG-13)

Satire about American consumerism hiding behind slapstick comedy, and it works, most of the time. Misplaced Bavarian (Sagebrecht) moves to Arkansas and begins spending wildly and acquiring “things.” Twisty plot carried confidently by confident wackiness from Sagebrecht and supporters. 94m/C VHS . GE Marianne Saegebrecht, Brad Davis, Judge Reinhold, Willie Harlander, Alex Winter, Erika Blumberger, Patricia Zehentmayr; D: Percy Adlon; W: Eleonore Adlon, Percy Adlon; M: Bob Telson.
