Movie Info

A ribald, rowdy exposé of what goes on behind the closed doors of the ladies' toilets, this film is outrageously funny. Pulling back the curtain on a world that remains a mystery to men and is delightfully familiar to women, it has broad appeal and is surprisingly full of heart. Featuring a wide array of weird and wonderful characters, from novice teenaged party girls, to seasoned ravers this is a no-holds-barred look at women's friendships, rivalries and romances in all their infinite variety.

A frank and fitfully funny look at female friendship

The acting is uniformly shocking, the storyline a cliché and there's a dearth of laughs, always a problem when your film is billed as a comedy.

The film's observations on women's rivalries and friendship aren't particularly eye opening and there's not much in the way of a plot, but first-time director MJ Delaney gives the action a vibrant energy that's matched by her appealing cast.

Powder Room is designed to be an amusing expose of what really goes on in women's toilets but its wayward plotting and lacklustre comedy mean it has more disappointments than laughs.

Sex, drugs and rock n roll. It's all here. And, best of all, there are no bloody weddings.

Adapted by Rachel Hirons from her own play, it's a fun idea and makes for a vivacious comedy enhanced by strong work from the cast, especially Sheridan Smith as the misbegotten protagonist, Sam, whose life is going nowhere.

While women in the audience may find resonance in the comical prickliness, this film remains more of a stage play than an actual movie.

Oh, here we go: the semi-inevitable cackhanded British attempt to summon up one-gazillionth of the interest generated by Bridesmaids or Girls.

An honest and unvarnished night of realisation on the tiles.

The plot isn't hugely detached from an EastEnders or Hollyoaks spin-off, but the dialogue is sharp and the performances earnest and convincing.

Powder Room harnesses some refreshing female comedic talent, all witnessed by the wise toilet attendant (newcomer Johnnie Fiori) who ends the night on a high, soulful note - much like any Saturday night sing-song in the loo when inhibitions crumble.

First-time director MJ Delaney mixes style with big laughs, and though the film stumbles over the occasional am-dram bum note, Smith balances it all out as the likeable girl next-door.

It's very funny and very fresh - in more ways than one.
