Good musical fun
27 March 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

2 friends have an escort agency in London which is somewhat failing, until a 3rd partner becomes involved. She sees that the ladies engaged by the company have all been there for years, and sets about to find some fresh new faces, and lift the business up, and the best time to do it is when the soldiers are on leave. Watch this if you don't mind people breaking out into song at any given moment, and definitely keep your eyes peeled out for the 3 leads doing an hilarious Marx Brothers impersonation - their Harpo almost out-harps the original!
