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

Time Out
Top Critic

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.

Daily Record (UK)

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.

Movie Talk

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.

The List

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

London Evening Standard

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.
