A disappointment
16 July 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Considering that Julie Walters was in this disappointment, it just doesn't gel. Sorry Julie, I thought it played flat and unfunny. Julie Walters can make a slipper appear a stilleto, but in this one it just doesn't get to the ball whatever. It promises alot and the 'boys' are a nice added bonus, but I wanted to take Maureen Hardcastle by the neck and throttle her for being such a mug. I didn't sympathise with her character at all and most of the dialogue is unfunny. The 'fantasy' scene's irritate but the costuming is excellent. Direction falls flat but the Production values are all great. Give it a miss except for another chance at watching Julie. She's a damn good actress but should have steered clear.
