This film was great...
21 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film was great, I really enjoyed it. In particular, the script was excellent, the dialogue was really witty and fast-paced most of the time. This was brought to the screen very well by the attractive Jayne Brook whose character Alison goes straight into my list of all-time great movie characters, alongside the likes of Indiana Jones and Rollergirl. Other plus points included the silly-but-not-too-silly humour of the film and the clarity of the photography. I didn't care too much for the plot which seemed weary and contrived, but it was not meant to be a serious film and the script and leading actress were enough to keep me more than happy for an hour and a half.
