….who started to watch the HBO "Mildred Pierce" mini-series and found it so painful that I had to bail after five minutes? Granted, I tasted only a sliver, but what I saw was so obvious, such a dumbed-down version of the original book and movie, that I machine-gunned the remote to the first thing that resembled a movie with genuine entertainment value. Which turned out to be "Scary Movie," as filthy and funny as I remembered it. You want "Mildred Pierce?" There’s only one. Come and get it.
