Not your average chick flick!
10 April 2018 | by GOWBTWSee all my reviews

There are several fighting films that is all action. And there are some that have a lot of sex appeal to it. This movie is also a war on drugs. It deals with the sister waging a war on drug dealers moving in on the high school. The victim, her brother who was strung out and drowns at the beach. Mary Ann "Lovely" Lovitt(Lucinda Dooling) is a high school graduate whose brother falls victim to drugs, tries to the ones responsible for his death. Lovely puts her fighting skills to the test against anyone who would get in her way. This movie is rather humorous. There's a lot of puns and slapsticks. Other than that, it was very entertaining of some sorts. The fight scenes are amazing. Where the ladies take care of the workmen on the docks. A very good chick flick with surprises to it. A classic gem of its own way. Subtle. 2 out of 5 stars
