CASUALTIES OF LOVE: THE "LONG ISLAND LOLITA" STORY
Lifetime Movie Network, 8:00 p.m. ET
This isn’t a recommendation, really, because this made-for-TV movie isn’t very good. Alyssa Milano stars as Amy Fisher, the titular underage “Long Island Lolita,” and Jack Scalia plays Joey Buttafuoco, the older lover whose wife Amy shot, but not fatally. This 1993 CBS telemovie told things from Joey’s point of view – but what’s noteworthy, from my point of view, is that all three major broadcast networks took a crack at this same story at about the same time. NBC’s Amy Fisher: My Story took her side, and the best of them, ABC’s The Amy Fisher Story, played it objectively – and starred Drew Barrymore.
