A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.
Amanda Ripley, a feminist writer for the women's magazine "Spare Cheeks" lucks into an apartment in Kensington. In order to pay the rent to Lady Carlton, the crazy romance novelist (with a stuffed pet dog named Josephine), who lives downstairs and owns the flat, she has to take in Shelley DuPont, a loud-mouthed American actress; Jennifer Marsh, a retarded friend from childhood; and Candice (pronounced Candeece) Valentine, the "slut" who previously lived there and has no where else to go.Written by
These Girls On Top dvds are a must for French & Saunders fans. It's some of the best of their early work. I love Dawn's character, Amanda. And I also think Jennifer is brilliant as the slow, child-like Jennifer Marsh. My only complaint is that Ruby Wax kind of over acts and after a while I find myself wanting to slap her silly. Other than that, this a great show with a lot of funny moments. Once you get to know the characters you will love them. Unfortunately there are only 13 episodes made and I doubt there will be any in the future. I for one would love to see a Girls On Top reunion. Bottom line...you will enjoy the show. Buy it!
