A taut ’90s thriller is among the movies on TV tonight
It does for housemates what Jaws did for sharks.
We are again at that midpoint of the week where the weekend seems so close yet so far away.
However, as the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun and to do that you can watch a movie tonight.
Here’s what’s on the box this Wednesday night (August 24).
Single White Woman – Awesome! Classic Cinema – 9 p.m.
In our selection tonight, a woman named Allie (Bridget Fonda) living in New York advertises for a new roommate after a breakup.
