A far superior version than the UK release.

Give me Southern Belle and American girl Courtney Love over her English Rose counterpart every time.

The script is tight - the humour comes in large doses AND the bedroom romps are stylish.

Sally Griffin is well cast as the original `Ugly Betty`.

A very very very funny film.

This is far superior to the UK verson Saturday Night Specials.

A stronger script and funnier jokes.

The English version is sexier and the UK actress who `plays` JULIE JOHNSON reveals more of herself than Courtney...but Miss Love is the better actress.

My advice BUY both and see for yourself...but Courtney Love IS the REAL Julie Johnson...

They do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but I will always love the UK version better than the USA movie.

Courtney Love is BRILLIANT as sexy blonde JULIE JOHNSON.

Ms Love has made the transformation from pub stripper to genuine movie star with ease.

She is so funny in this film that she should try being a stand-up comic.

Julie Johnson (Lili Taylor) is a bored New Jersey housewife who is unhappy with her life and decides to take a computer class at a local college. When her husband finds out and is unsupportive and verbally abusive, she decides that enough is enough and the couple separate. Inspired, her friend Claire (Courtney Love) leaves her husband, and, having nowhere to go, moves in with Julie and her son and daughter. Living together, Julie and Claire develop a relationship that is more than just a friendship. Problems arise when Julie, immersed in studies, makes new, scholarly, cultured friends and Claire doesn't mesh well with them.

Well acted and well told story about realising who you are and taking chances to get where you want to be. The relationship between Julie and Claire is believable. 3.5 stars

JULIE JOHNSON - Wow - This is to stag night entertainment what David Bowie is to rock and roll - the best in the business.

The star of this flick is the sexiest performer I have ever seen. Courtney Love is raunchy and Julie Johnson just oozes sex appeal.

The dialogue is pretty weak - the jokes aint that funny - but the sex scenes are sizzling.

It is well documented that Courtney Love and Julie Johnson are both former strippers - and it shows...

If you like this movie - you will love `Saturday Nigh Specials`.

Courtney Love is BRILLIANT as JULIE Johnson - this is the best thing to come out of America since Iggy Pop.

It is funnier than a complete series of The Office and sexier than a Page Three calender.

Courtney is perfect as `Baby Doll` and oozes sex appeal like Kate Moss and Joanne Guest - believe me Julie Johnson is that hot a character.

There have been tributes to this film - rip-offs - imitations - but there is only one JULIE JOHNSON - and that is former stripper and Rock star wife Courtney Love.

This is the film that all fans of witty one-liners and sexy blondes should own.
Courtney Love is the sexiet actress of the decade and the dialogue is of Oscar winning status.
Brilliant movie.

Speaking as a big fan of Courtney Love I have to say this is the best film she has ever made. She is brilliant as sexy single mum and stripper Julie Johnson.
The movie also has a great soundtrack.

A friend recomended this as a brilliant adult movie that was a combination of Klute , Straw Dogs and A Clockwork Orange . but all I can say 2Dont believe the hype".
This does stand-up to his rave review or the rave reviews that I have read about this film.
It is NOT a Saturday Night Special. It aint very good and to be honest Courtney Love is NOT sexy enough to play the sexy stripper and single mum Julie Johnson.
The script is poor , the acting almost wooden , and the moral message does NOT work.
Its a shame because this could of been a great film - a great idea - but the wrong producer and leading lady.

Sexy Julie Johnson. A Brilliant film. This is a hidden gem that should be spoke of as a movie classic.
Courtney Love is fantastic as sluttish single mum and sexy stripper Julie Johnson.
This is far superior to the UK version "Saturday Night Specials` and captures the sleazy world of Lara Cliftons`Baby Oil And Ice` the classic book about East End strippers.
