Movie of the Day 11/29/12:
The plot:
According to Amazon.com's editorial review:

"Based on a True Story - Mike and Diane Howard opened the first videocassette rental store in St. Louis in 1981. With hard work, their company grew into a multi-million dollar chain of video stores. The Howards were targeted by a religious group called the Citizens For Decency. The CFD insisted the Howards remove movies that they felt were obscene. Films such as Taxi Driver, Agnes of God, Blazing Saddles, Animal House, Mr. Mom, SPLASH, and many more. When Martin Scorsese's controversial film, The Last Temptation of Christ, was released on video, the Howards' were the only stores in St. Louis to carry the film. The CFD declared war with pickets and boycotts. Death threats were made against their daughter."


"The prosecutor filed obscenity charges and alleged that the Howards had ties to organized crime which made Mike and Diane social outcasts. They won their court case, but the negative publicity and legal fees bankrupted them. After an aborted suicide attempt, Mike pulled himself together. Mike finds out that a former prostitute, who had fallen into the religious group, told the zealots how the Prosecuting Attorney had been a regular customer of hers. The CFD then blackmailed the Prosecuting Attorney with information about the prosecutor's secret sex life."

"Mike and Diane lost everything, but they did get something the powerless seldom do - REVENGE."
