Harmless but average
22 August 2000 | by (Landantown) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on Sky at 5am so I wasn't really in the best mood to watch any film. I had an exam that I was dreading(Music GCSE) that morning and so thought some TV would calm me down.And it did.I stumbled across this little light-hearted film and watched it from the start as it had Susan Sarandon in it who starred in my one of my favourite films,The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It made me relax and forget about the terror of GCSEs for an hour and a half. It was astonishingly average but very harmless and if taken as a bit of fun then it'll be enjoyed.
