Typical eighties atmosphere
28 October 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

We have already seen such topics, man times, during the eighties, movies destined to housewives, describing some of them, women with flabby physiques who suddenly decide to become some kind of super women thru sport. That can be marathon, triathlon, rowing, soccer, or - like this one - bodybuilding. The scheme is always the same, not even realistic, unlike most of TV popular stuff. products which most audiences can feel some self resemblance with.
