Not a complete flush in the pan...
I happened to enjoy this film, even though it occurred mostly in a womens' bathroom.
The opening exposition is clever, and if one can set aside the disbelief that rises due to the amount of time the characters spend a penny (and other things) in the loo, this drama unfolds slowly but interestingly for the rest of the film.
It's not a comedy per se, but some amusing moments do take place, some of which involves the British love of lavatory jokes.
The movie builds momentum and once the main character's elaborate tale starts to unravel, the pace picks up dramatically and critical mass is achieved. It is a little overlong and could have done with some deletions, but being converted from a stage play perhaps the author did not want to leave out some items which were considered important.
More an introspective drama with some female fart jokes, than anything else, although I did laugh at Chanelle's diagnosis of her intestinal difficulties.
As all the good music finished about 1978, watch out for the Womens' room attendant, who happens to have a magnificent voice, displayed at the final point before the end credits.
And us men always did want to know why women like to visit the toot in two's....
