I wasted 1 1/2 hours of my life - I want them back!
1 October 2005 | by ruttlesRevengeSee all my reviews

Don't waste any time on this pile of cr*p. I only watched it because Robert Newman was in it. I remember him from Mary Whitehouse experience and have seen him do stand up. He was bloody gorgeous (except for when he smelled of cigarettes) and intelligent (Oxbridge educated) but I don't know what he was thinking.

It is not easy watching a film about a group of psychopathic women. They did not win me over or provide any empathy (let alone sympathy)to their cause.

The only one I had empathy for was the girl's mother who did not approve of the IRA. Robert Newman - what were you thinking?
