A Good Ole Fashioned Family Western. With Glorious, Glorious Sideburns

Not since the epic Tiffany and Debbie Gibson face off of about six months from now has there been a coming together of two giants quite like this.

I speak, of course, about the reunion of Luke Perry and Jason Priestly in the Hallmark Movie Channel film Goodnight for Justice. It's a Western, because they all are.

Somewhere, nine-year-old me is experiencing strange, unexplainable tickle sensations.

Jason Priestly is having a fairly successful-ish television directing career, which I'm sure informs his decision to not act in the movie and instead throw his dear old friend to the wolves of family-friendly entertainment. Perry isn't doing too terribly, really. A cursory scan of his IMDb page reveals he's been keeping quite busy. But I guess three cancelled hour-longs featuring him as a key lead, not to mention a starring role in The Sandlot 3 (that's just sad) have lead him to give it all up and go Selleck on us. A Quigley for a new generation (which is a reference even I don't fully understand because I'm not 70 and only watch Hallmark for Golden Girls reruns).

The plot, you ask? I'm not sure why you're troubling yourself with such minor details when I've already hit on the main draw, but, sure, why not.

The Western is based on an idea by Perry who I hear envisioned it as a series of 3 movies. Set in the American Old West, it centers on John Goodnight (Perry) a circuit judge on a quest to catch the outlaw who killed his family.

I guess I shouldn't be shocked that's the character's name, but I almost liked it better when I thought it was just a bad typo.

Fuck it. Sign me up for two more. Cast Brenda as Shirley Howdyall and Andrea (Ahn-DREY-ah) as Prudence Peaceout.
