Storyline

Sexy, teenaged, immature Girly and her camera-wielding brother Sonny bring home unsuspecting men to Mumsy and Nanny, where they play games, and if they don't follow the rules, they're sent to the angels. One day they bring home a New Friend who has a few ideas for games of his own, though, and he begins to turn the foursome against each other. Written by Brian J. Wright <tyrannorabbit@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Released at the same time as Goodbye Gemini (1970), another sexually provocative British film. At the time, there was a strong backlash against such films from the conservative press, meaning that some cinema chains refused to show the film. It was rebranded for US release and called simply "Girly" where it rather surprisingly found a small audience. See more »

Goofs

Sonny's "16mm home movie camera" is actually an 8mm home movie camera. You can tell by the size, shape, lens and model name. 16mm weren't as common for home movies as an 8mm camera was in 1970 so it would be difficult for an amateur filmmaker to obtain one without a lot of money. See more »

Making new demented friends .............
2 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ripe with sexual teasing, an obviously deranged family lures unsuspecting men to their estate. Once ensnared inside, they are subjected to humiliation as playthings for the children. Not a total disaster, but more a curiosity, "Girly" becomes somewhat redundant and ultimately tiresome. Basically the story involves the latest victim turning the bizarre family members against each other, in an attempt to outwit the nitwits. Small occurrences of black comedy sometimes pop up, but are mostly lost in the odd goings on. The acting is acceptable, but this is a very claustrophobic film, and it's origin as a play is rather obvious throughout. - MERK
