Review by anonymous (posted on 6-Jul-2006)

Having grown up in England during those magical years of the 1960's, I couldn't have conceived that it was in fact 1971 that brought perhaps one of that Countrys' finest ever musical achievements, that being the film "The Boyfriend". The music, songs, acting and dancing are all superb and it is a non stop extravaganza experience. When we have friends around who havn't seen or heard it, we sit them down and play it for them. Without exception, they are totally spellbound and in the most profound awe of the detail and fun and songs and actors etc. etc. All of course centred around the "never shall she grow old, as others grow old" Twiggy! We love her XXX
