Not very good, but watchable for Susanna alone
24 May 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of the Bangles, I couldn't wait to see this movie, in which that supersweet all-female band's lead singer takes a starring role. I was horribly disappointed. There isn't one likeable, or even sympathetic character in the whole thing, the humour is moronic, the production values below-par and the plot nonsensical. Right away, all credibility is blown when Susanna's character says she hasn't had one significant romance during her whole time at college. WHAT? Is the place full of blind guys or something?! The best scene is when she dances in her underwear, but that only accounts for something like 1.30m of an overlong movie...is it worth the trouble when you could just dig out the Bangles' Greatest Videos again? Susanna can clearly act, but she deserved a better vehicle than this mess.
