    One of the weaker BB entries, but still iconic.

  • Cathy says:

    The laundry scene will haunt me but the number at the end is just sensational!!!!! I like whisper ending too. Kind of sweet. It also goes with the tiptoeing of women loving vs. women objectification going on in my view. And for me it ends on a mysterious but positive tone that way.
