Lola: Your definition? It's lucky the world isn't made according to your definiton,'cause it would be an ugly one. With all your cakes and frocks and olives but no love. 'Cause that's the thing you fear most, isn't it, love? You're afraid of it,you try and kill it in other people, but you can't stop people from loving each other! You can throw away all Brownie's letters but you can't keep him from me, because he's in me.

Kylie was quite good.
18 September 2001 | by (Uk) – See all my reviews

I quite liked this movie. Its a bit feeble but its alright. They obviously used Kylie because of her superstar status and maybe she isn't the best choice but she pulls it off quite well. I liked it when the woman who takes Lola in teaches her manners. Her hair looks really dodgy when she bleaches it though. All in all not bad but it could've been better.
