S Club Seeing Double

Movie Review by Nigel A. Messenger

Starring: Rachel Stevens, Bradley McIntosh, Hannah Spearitt, Jo O’Meara, Jon Lee, Tina Barrett

Director: Nigel Dick

S-Club have made a movie? Well they started off as a TV series on the BBC so why not. Now we’ve accepted that let’s get down to the story.

S-Club have been working very hard and want a break. So they get one, but while they are enjoying their time off they discover their devious manager has replaced them with clones. Apparently no one has noticed the difference so now it’s up to the real S-Club gang to get their lives back.

There’s obviously some deeper message here about manufactured pop bands but take my word for it when I tell you that you’re really not supposed to look past the surface. There are some songs thrown randomly in so we can see them do their stuff, a couple of very slightly risque jokes but the young kids won’t even notice them so don’t worry and some general good natured humour that will keep young children amused and the S-Club fans contented.

The acting is well… pretty bad, but it really doesn’t matter because if you were after that kind of movie you wouldn’t be watching this anyway.

S-Club all look good, Rachel looks particularly hot, (I think she’s a babe, and my favourite colour is… oops, sorry nearly got carried away there) and the music is the S-Club sound that you know and fans love. Actually they always were the best of the so-called manufactured pop bands anyway.

If you’ve got young children they will probably like the movie and if you like S-Club and the TV show you will like this too. Everyone else should stay away.

3 out of 6 stars
