Storyline

Amanda Ripley, a feminist writer for the women's magazine "Spare Cheeks" lucks into an apartment in Kensington. In order to pay the rent to Lady Carlton, the crazy romance novelist (with a stuffed pet dog named Josephine), who lives downstairs and owns the flat, she has to take in Shelley DuPont, a loud-mouthed American actress; Jennifer Marsh, a retarded friend from childhood; and Candice (pronounced Candeece) Valentine, the "slut" who previously lived there and has no where else to go.

Quotes

Candice: I just want you to know that I'll never get in your way, I'll never hang 'round your neck. And, like, when we go to Rome or Paris and you're busy, just say to me, "Cand, here's the keys to your car, here's your gold American Express card, now go back to the hotel, sweet, and stay there!"

very, very good
21 November 2006 | by (the Midlands, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, what can i say about Girls on Top then? OK, its not as funny as Ab Fab or anything that Dawn French or Tracey Ullman have been in recently, but still, it was an enjoyable comedy. Now everyone says Ruby Wax, who plays the eccentric, failed American actress Shelly, and Tracey Ullman the typical London, bimbo slag as the most annoying of the girls, but i found these two to be very funny in deed, and nice to see Jennifer Saunders at her ditsy best. And what can i say i say about Joan Greenwood? hilarious! and the thing with her dead stuffed dog Joesphine is simply pure comedy! i loved this programme i really did, but it ain't Ab Fab believe u me. but if your a fan of any of the girls, then i would recommend it! 4**** out of 5*****
