After the untimely death of her husband, shy Joan (a part-time cleaner) has to make money fast to keep from losing her home. She asks Fred, her sleazy boss, if she can work more hours - but instead, he takes on sexy air-head, Sharon and fires Joan. Now, she's forced to resort to extreme measures to avoid her home being repossessed. Aided by Sharon, and her two friends/former work-mates (65 year-old eccentric Enid, and desperate Mavis), Joan becomes the Madame of a do-it-yourself co-operative brothel... A brothel with no sex!Written by
I bought this film last week and enjoyed it so much that I have watched it twice since. It's rare that there is a film about women doing their own thing and in control of their lives. What makes this movie so unusual is that it is so funny. I have not laughed this much in many many years. I still chuckle when I think of some of the scenes. I checked on IMDb and I cannot believe a man wrote this script. I'm not sure if it was at the cinema. If it was, I guessed I must have missed it which is a shame because I would've loved to see this with a big audience laughing along together. My husband watched it with me the second time around. He laughed more than me and even recommended it to our friends.
