Brush Up My SistersThree women enroll at the Hong Kong Police Training Academy for very different reasons. Ying has a crush on a police officer; Lin wants to avenge her sister’s murder; and Kammy, a paparazzi photographer, wants a story on a lesbian scandal at the Academy.

Oh my goodness, what a stupid comedy. Girls prancing about who don’t belong in police training. A volleyball game in bikinis just for breast shots. This has been promoted as action movie, but it’s far from it. All we get in that regard is the girls attacking thieves with shovels and a toy gun.

Oh, no lesbian scandals either. The most Kammy can manage are a few titillating photos before she begins to care more about her classmates than her job.

This synopsis is here more as a warning not to waste your time – no lesbian content and no girls with guns, regardless of the dvd cover. (AB)
