The Ronald Reagan Horror Show: Don't forget to see on Sunday on Showtime at 8 p.m. the Mommy Dearest of political docudramas, the cheesy, over-the-top Reagan biopic. Even if you deplore CBS caving to pressure and despise Reagan's legacy, this show -- based on the script that's been circulated (see my Nov. 8 posting to read it ) -- is apparently filled with fabricated nonsense. My prediction: It will ultimately be shown at midnight in some Washington indie movie theaters -- and political junkies, along with drag queens dressed up as Nancy Reagan/Lady Macbeth, will shout along the choicest lines with the characters on the screen, just like cult movie buffs at showings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
