Noisy, colourful and amusing but lacking anything of value below that exterior
Leaving behind the mundane grind of their jobs in a factory, a group of working class women head out for a girls night out of drinking, shrieking, laughing and female entertainment specifically a club where a male stripper is performing. Although this short animation won awards and was promoted as being hilarious, I failed to see the hype pay off into delivery. The basic plot sees a bunch of terribly "council estate" women going to a club where they drink and scream just like the terrible trollops you see in the bingo at times it is amusing but it is never "hilarious" and it certainly never gets any depth to it.
The animation is as broad and bawdy as the characters themselves but it mostly works and does show a real match with the material. I wasn't too taken by it myself but then I suspect that that was more to do with my dislike for the subjects. Overall this is amusing and noisy and I suppose does capture a type of person pretty well but I didn't see the value in it past this it had no real laughs and didn't have any insight into the characters that it gets right on the nose.
