a mixed bag but there are delights
30 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Even as I write this i'm not really sure how much I did or didn't enjoy this. Fine title but misleading, the titular garments appear but to no significant extent. There are pluses and minuses in this. It moved along nicely and was generally well directed, particularly the dance, pub and party scenes, which seem to trip up the best of directors. The script is a mess and I suppose here lies the problem. Is this a 'Confessions' type romp? Certainly not. A serious and well argued critique of the times. No, again and I guess it is the fact that it probably falls between these two that is the biggest problem. Getting to have sex is treated as a joke and then marriage and the question of abortion are treated seriously. Its a mixed bag but there are delights, many advertising street hoardings and London back streets, infuriatingly unidentified plus the aforementioned indoor gatherings. Victor Henry strikes me as an unconvincing character, either joshing wildly or moralising terribly. No the only star here and she shines pretty brightly in one of her earlier roles, is Susan George.
