Quotes

Allison Henderson: At work, when you act like 'one of the boys', they call you abrasive and difficult. So, if you act like a woman, they say you're emotional and difficult. So, difficult is really just the word for anything that isn't a man.

Dire
25 September 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This drivel masquerades as a comedy but offers little more than a misplaced feminist rant. I am sure they expected women to say 'oh it's so true - we DO make lists and we Do multitask!' but please - who exactly was this aimed at - zombie life forms? Maybe they think that women are so tired that they wouldn't notice how cliché-ridden and pathetically hackneyed this offering is? It was not amusing. It was not interesting. It was not original. It did not have a single redeeming quality and I suggest you do not waste your time nor your money on this rubbish.

Indeed I shall waste no more time reviewing it.
