    Twenty years ago, this comedy might have been a slightly amusing diversion. Now it just exudes an air of sweaty desperation. show more

    And Graham? Still wearing the short shorts, the shorter skirts, the knee socks and the wider than wide eyes. She and My Dead Boyfriend aren’t exactly bad, they’re just out of place and out of time. But at least she’s not playing another hooker. show more
