Rare Bow Wow Wow merits a "10" by itself
30 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Depth? No. Great acting?Not really, although John Guilgud is almost worth the cost of admission alone, especially if you have a leather fetish for great British actors... What makes this movie priceless is the club scene featuring Bow Wow Wow. For 80's trivia and music rarities this is a biggee: "Where's My Snake?" in performance. For anyone who can't help moving to "I Want Candy" this singular movie performance of "Where's My Snake" is Annabella Lwin at her best. Is there any reason to watch the whole movie more than once? No. But you will want to watch the scene with Bow Wow Wow and John Guilgud over and over for a great Bow Wow Wow and 80's video moment. OK: fans of light-hearted Eighties comedies will be entertained and there is enough plot, humor and unexpected gags to keep you interested. Like Sir John Guilgud in a great preparatory turn to his later role in "Arthur". But really, with Annabelle Lwin at the pinnacle of Bow wow Wow's fame: who needs a better reason?
