Plot

The plot follows the antics of three gun-toting, streetwise, saucy sisters in Swinging London in the late 1960s The film is most notable for the topless scenes by the Appleton sisters Blatt and the Appletons also contributed to three songs on the film's soundtrack

Reception

Honest received unfavourable reviews with one critic remarking, "It is the worst kind of rubbish, the kind that makes you angry you have wasted 105 minutes of your life" Peter Bradshaw noted Honest "subscribes to the usual credulous fictions about the charm, glamour and wit of violent criminals, and leaves out these qualities in spades" and added "However silly and implausible, it would be all right if there was the slightest hint of brio or fun in the script, written by comedy giants Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais But there isn't" The Scottish Daily Record went so far as to state that "This turgid tale of Sixties London isn't just bad - it's quite probably the worst film ever" and added "And Honest is being tipped for a slot in Hollywood's hall of shame, ranked alongside duffs like Waterworld and The Avengers" However, the Sunday Times gave it 4 stars and called it a "cult classic" à la Amazon Women on the Moon The film was screened out of competition at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival

The low budget £3 million film flopped in its opening week in the UK, earning only £111,309 on 220 screens

British film historian IQ Hunter, discussing the issue of "What is the worst British film ever made", listed Honest as one of the candidates for that title
