Probably best known for its shower scene
15 November 2005 | by TirogesflairSee all my reviews

Perhaps this is a man thing but I do remember watching this about 20 years and being surprised to see a group of women totally naked in a shower situation. Before - this was a scene that was usually the mark of a teen movie (think 'Porky's etc) with the guarantee of seeing young, gym fit Hollywood women on display. I also recall that in this scene Julie Walters insisted that the (male) crew also strip off when they shot the scene as well - perhaps that is why it does seem to go on for ages !

As for the rest of the movie - It appears to be very lazy and unfocused. There are no big surprises. The ones who dream of being assertive - are assertive - and those who are not - don't. Perhaps the whole film needed a good re-edit in the end.
