unbelieveable, but fun!
18 January 2000 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

This is a VERY funny & "cute" film about two young girls travelling abroad during the 1920's. even tho some of the situations they get into are a bit "unbelieveable", it is QUITE FUNNY! (I especially liked their run-in with the "Geezer"!).

The sequel to this film (I forgot the name!) is a BIG disappointment! sigh. One wishes that this could've become a series, but NO WAY...not after the 2nd film! (I especially dislike the "Bohemian" who does the "miming").

But, if you're looking for "fun, light-hearted films", check THIS out! Norm
