Goofs

The hospital scene contains numerous items of medical equipment, furniture, fixtures and fittings dating firmly from the late 1990s (e.g., beds, bedside cabinets, signs, doors and door handles) which do not resemble those used in 1968 when the film was set. See more »

What have I just sat through?
30 May 2000 | by shank-7See all my reviews

This film started poorly and did very little to pull itself up and away from the lowest common denominator; 'roll up and see the All Saints get their boobs out!' Any film needs more than celebrity nudity to make it watchable - sadly Honest didn't have much else to recommend it. The script is average, the plot has an exciting base but doesn't build on this, and the Appleton accents are 'novel' at best. For me Melanie comes away her head held high. She is sweet and engaging as Jo, but is that because she is a good actress or that Melanie Blatt herself is sweet and engaging? The film would always be slated in England regardless of how good it was. It isn't terrible, but it definitely isn't anything to write home about.
