Single White Female was released in theatres 30 years ago. Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh starred in the original film, which followed Allison (Fonda), a trusting lady who opens her house to a roommate (Leigh), only to have her life turned upside down when the tenant turns out to be a lunatic. The movie went on to become a cult classic, with the title becoming a popular catchphrase in the process. With the premiere of Single Black Female this weekend, Lifetime offers the notion of a makeover, teaming Amber Riley and Raven Goodwin.
Single Black Female will air on Lifetime on Saturday, February 5 at 8 p.m.
