Loved this ironic, post feminist film
18 August 2002 | by mlaforetSee all my reviews

Very funny B flick. Tried a bit to hard to stay a B movie but a wonderful lark of hit you over the head metaphor of a woman "growing into her power". Ms Hanna was the right choice for this transformative awakening.

I'd live in Nancy Archer's pocket any day!
