Nice Girls Don’t Explode (1987)

April (Michelle Meyrink) is a girl who can make things explode, usually whenever she gets amorous – a curse she’s inherited from her mother (Barbara Harris).

With its unabashed lifts from Carrie (1976), this peculiar hybrid is rarely amusing and only distinguished by the presence of Harris, a delightfully quirky actress who is perhaps best remembered as the phoney medium in Alfred Hitchcock’s Family Plot.
