Jewel heists, gender-bending and love in the Swinging '60s, with Nicole and Natalie Appleton and Melanie Blatt (three quarters of UK popsters All Saints), as Gerry, Mandy and Jo - East End sisters turned gangsters. As soon as you hear the Mockney accents, however, it's clear that absent member Shaznay was wise to avoid this particular affair. When a robbery flounders, Gerry encounters American journalist Daniel (Facinelli) - who provides further eye candy, while murmuring: 'It's a two pound cab ride from Carnaby Street to the East End, yet it's a different world.' Despite glimmers of effective comedy from hapless Jo and unhinged Mandy, who trades blow jobs for firearms, this is on the whole directionless, hackneyed and riddled with hysterical clichés, among them a sleazy fanzine editor and a traumatized father.
