Sue (Michelle Holmes) and Rita (Siobhan Finneran) are hefty teenage girls who live in a deteriorating housing project in economically depressed north England. As the film opens, they trek across town to baby-sit for Bob (George Costigan) and Michelle (Lesley Sharp), a middle-class suburban

couple. Instead of driving the baby-sitters home at the end of the evening, George takes them out on the darkened moors, where he produces a condom for their inspection and then proposes they put it to use. After a bit of glib demurring, the girls accept. All three are more or less delighted by

the experience and repeat it frequently. But their cozy arrangement runs into problems. Based on two plays by Andrea Dunbar, this is a sex comedy in which the on-screen sex (which is limited) is far less important than the idea of that sex. With their menage a trois, the girls are capable of

bringing some excitement to their lives even if the surrounding world wallows in hopeless inertia. Although there are some slow sections, RITA, SUE AND BOB TOO! provides a number of good laughs and also more than a few empathetic winces.
