totally non PC entertainment
9 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I didn't feel this was quite up to the standard of the same director's, Groper Train Search For The Black Pearl, made the same year, but it may just be that the novelty value had worn off a little. Although generally as well shot as the other, this seemed a bit murky in the groping scenes and they didn't quite seem to have the fervour of the other film. Enjoyable, nevertheless, with the humour once again working to some extent. Whether, of course it is entirely appropriate to film the groping of ladies on trains in the manner of a silent comedy, is another matter. As usual, even with only a few excellent performers, the storyline and interchanging of couplings gets a bit confusing, but these are minor quibbles over what is a sexy, humorous and totally non PC entertainment.
