Flapp-tastic!
25 August 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

This must be the ultimate flapper comedy - an hilarious and risque look at a new fad, full of the new slang (in titles of course), bobbed hair and short skirts. If you love the roaring twenties don't miss this film. Virginia Lee Corbin is the head flapper - and she's delicious. Also gorgeous is Jane Winton as her straight sister. Corbin invades Winton's quiet life in a small town and shocks everyone - but she also reveals the underground activities at the local fun pier and married Winton's secret affair!

The story comes to a climax on a burning rollercoaster that has to be seen to be believed. Nice score on the Konadog print too! A pure delight.
