5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous movie!, 21 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Wish You Were Here [DVD] (DVD)
This was one of the few good movies to come out of the 80s. Although I am not keen on films with this sort of theme, I found this an absolute tonic! Hilariously funny in places, which will have you in tears with laughter - before it gets a bit more 'serious' that is.

Emily Lloyd is superb as Linda - the girl with 'attitude', and is most entertaining as we follow her story from the little girl who says 'bum' during a prim family gathering, to a young woman who ends up pregnant after 'bonking' an older man (Tom Bell) in her father's garden shed!

Mixed in with the silliness, we do have some rather moving scenes about a girl who is looking for affection and attention from anywhere she can get it, but doesn't have in inkling on how to go about it... Instead, she sells herself short, and soon discovers that the easiest way to obtain it is to 'flaunt' her sexuality at anything in trousers. Ironically though, this often results into tremendously comic scenes rather than sympathetic ones, and these, however prim the viewer, will simply have to be amused by. Just try and be offended when you see Emily Lloyd's character run around the garden skipping late at night singing and shouting 'up your bum'! I guarantee this will have you in stitches!

Buy this now - it's been unavailable for too long!

Enjoy!
