Review by Helen on 28th August, 2009
5 stars "Undoubtably Topp"

The untouchable twins are undoubtably Topps. So human, so Kiwi – touching, sad, joyous, triumphant. This is a fabulous look at the lives of our iconic twins. It also gives us a glimpse of NZ modern history and protest of social issues of the day. You will laugh out loud and cry simultaneously. A must see!!!

5 stars "Awesome"

Totally awesome. The Topp Twins show why they deserve their iconic status. Lots of laughs and unlike the other Topp Twins material, this is exportable (to people of other cultures)

"The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls" is the first time that the irrepressible Kiwi entertainment double act, Jools and Lynda Topp's extraordinary personal story has been told. The film offers a revealing look into the lives of the World's only comedic, country singing, dancing, and yodeling twin sisters. As well as rarely seen archive footage and home movies, the film features a series of special interviews with some of the Topp's infamous comedy alter-egos including candid chats with the two Kens, Camp Mother and Camp Leader, the Bowling Ladies and the Posh Socialite sisters, Prue and Dilly.

THE TOPP TWINS: UNTOUCHABLE GIRLS is a big story. It's not just the story of two sisters but also of 25 years of New Zealand history. Quarter a century of cultural changes and the foundation of a national identity. Part concept film, part biopic, part historical record, part comedy, the Twins share their journey from "coming out" to Jools' recent brush with Breast Cancer with much laughter, honesty and wisdom.

It is a film about two truly unique New Zealanders which ends up saying as much about us as it does about them.

  • And that's The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls' greatest triumph - the narrative weaves the Twins' lives with major social events - and effortlessly shows how these icons have become a Kiwi heritage property - TVNZ
  • 5 STARS - Best thing: This is hard to choose. Their parents could easily carry a show on their own, but in the end it is the backstage footage of the sisters giving each other a bit of the borax. - Otago Daily Times
  • This lovely little doco will warm the cockles of any heart, and made me feel proud to call myself a Kiwi. - Kate Rodger TV3 News (4 Stars)
