Perfume creator Satin Chow is about to reveal her new designer scent 'Puppy' when she is cruelly struck down by a rare condition called anosmia which robs her of her sense of smell, and could even kill her. With time fast running out, she begins a frantic search for the only people who can provide the tissue-donations she desperately needs: her long-lost sisters Couderoy and Velour. Written by

For some reason I tended to assume that the art of parody is mainly a male domain because of PC, because women prefer other kinds of humor, whatever. This very amusing movie proved me wrong. The female stars have this well paced (male scripted) affair very much under their control. The results are truly hilarious. The jokes just keep coming, and now I definitely know it's true that a bad joke can become a good one if you just repeat it often enough - and that when you run your finger along a sharpened blade you might get hurt ...
Three sisters represent different types of women: Satan it's Satin! the energetic ambitious and (if it's necessary) ruthless businesswoman, Velour the self pitying masculine social misfit, Corduroy the down to earth Mother Courage". They really are the best there is in the field this side of Madeline Kahn. A lot of the fun is made at the expense of women induced rituals as presented in TV serials and talk shows. Unexpected turns of events abound and there are many occasions for true emotional distress, not least a baby in a bin. Yet in the end the urge for harmony and reconciliation in the group this very basic female aim is amply satisfied. The movie gets great male support by Harvey Korman and Dan Hedaya.
