Trivia

Second of two major British movies of the 1980s, both comedy-dramas, that featured the name "Rita" in the title. Educating Rita (1983) was the first and Rita, Sue and Bob Too! (1987) was the second. The two pictures were made and released about four years apart. Ironically, Susan (a name which can be abbreviated as Sue), is Rita's real name in Educating Rita (1983). See more »

True!
17 January 2004 | by (Leeds, England) – See all my reviews

It's not Hugh Grant in some over priced London suburb falling in love with hilarious results, It's not angry young men fighting against an unfair class system, it's not about forbidden homosexual partnerships or a mixing of Indian and British culture. This film shows a snap shot of British working class life as it was (and still is in many cases!). The British film industry's Liberal Elite hate this kind of movie as it attempts to show real people. Not every working class person has a chip on there shoulder! It's packed full of swearing and sex and even a little bit of violence. If you are easily offended don't watch, but if you fancy a realistic Brit flick that doesn't have Hugh Grant in it, then see this.
