Aisle of shame

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Film reviews -

at the blame­less screen. A sheep is dressed as a lady. A big bag of drugs goes miss­ing. Some­body throws up in his lob­ster din­ner.

We can for­give these out­rages. We can for­give the woe­ful act­ing. But we can’t for­give what they’ve done to Olivia New­ton-John. Caught up in the film’s ap­palling tonal in­con­sis­tency, poor ONJ be­gins as a slightly racy po­ten­tial mother-in-law, be­fore in­gest­ing a sack of co­caine and turn­ing into a mon­ster of bo­toxed las­civ­i­ous­ness. It’s like watch­ing your nicest maiden aunt do­ing some­thing pro­cre­ative with a sur­prised post­man. Leave the poor woman alone, you jerks.
