"*yawn*" - a review by pearly

Is there anything better than a Saturday night foreign language T'n'A film on SBS? If there is, I'm not aware of it.

In the T'n'A stakes, Girls on Top is relatively tame, which, considering that its main characters are high school students, is probably for the best. The film focuses on the attempts of three girls, Inken (Diana Amft), Lena (Karoline Herfurth), and Victoria (Felicitas Woll), to have the perfect orgasm. Wunderbah! The girls aren't very experienced in such matters, though, so lots of it comes down to discussion of techniques etc.

Girls on Top is kinda like a more raunchy version of a teen film - it's got the gals and their relationships with the boys, the light humour, the trials of going through puberty, and the frivolous plot. And of course there's the fact that it's basically pretty crap.

I would recommend it to the kind of people who enjoyed Scary Movie (2000). I would, except that the fact that it's German language probably makes it all too difficult for them. So I won't.

Girls on Top is the kind of film you'll watch and be unimpressed by as you're watching it, and then, in a week or so, you'll have forgotten it even exists. And given I watched it over a week ago, I've now run out of things to say about it.

pearly gives this movie 2 out of 10.

  1. I just watched this movie and I thought it was great. Why 2/10? Either you aren't a very funny person or you aren't funny period.

  2. I totally agree with Une on this one, it seems that SBS has shown it again this year. I missed out on seeing it last year and was grateful to catch it this year.

    I thought it was great, and very funny in parts. For a film that has such silly premise it really does very well. If not a great film in terms of plot, it makes up for this by haveing some hilarious situations.

  4. I watched this last night. I didn't think that it was that bad. I think it's better than some other teen movies.

  5. I wouldn't relate Girls On Top to Scary Movie, I think Pearly got the wrong idea about what type of audience this movie is meant to attract. Girls On Top is a chickflick. Scary Movie is for stoned teenage boys. There's a difference. I disliked Scary Movie, and I liked this movie. It's just a cute, silly little film to show the humour and fun in being a teenage girl and becoming a woman. I think the movie has a kind of similar feel to it as Muriel's Wedding, even though it's younger and less original. There were parts of it that were typical for a teen movie, but those scenes were necessary, because it was showing the 3 girls' daily lives, and that's what teenage girls experience. I would definitely say Girls On Top is a deeper movie than Scary Movie.

  6. pearly is, as i think we have all agreed by now, a bit of a duffer.
    speaking as a girl, i found this movie very funny, and very sexy at the same time, which doesn't often happen. i mean, when inken grabs that telegraph pole and orgasms in the middle of the street... spectacular.
    i'll certainly be getting my bike out and putting the seat waaaaay up high...
