She's dangerous!
27 February 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

On the outside, Jennifer appears to be a normal girl. However, she has a special power which is so far unknown to her, it's hereditary and passed down through the females of the family: the power to stop ALL machinery. It takes 15 minutes to do so, and does not work if she is asleep, those are the only 'rules'. Now this doesn't affect her so much as she lives in a sleepy little town that is still all horse and cart, but her boyfriend is a watch maker who owns a car, so there's some problems there (that just seem odd coincidences since neither of them know), but when Jennifer goes away to London, that's when the real fun starts!

A lovely little English screwball comedy, and see if you recognise Jennifer as Truly Scrumptious from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' - 20 years younger. 10/10!
