How to Please a Woman is a warm-hearted look at sexuality and vulnerability at all stages of life, according to Variety magazine. Phillips plays a 50-something woman who has a Eureka moment and launches an all male-cleaning service.
Phillips told Variety the film was a more-than-funny liberation story for women who have been afraid to ask what they want, at home, at work and in the bedroom.
Josh Thomson stayed mum on his role in the flick but did confess to Spy he was a huge fan of Phillips from her days in UK comedy sketch show Smack the Pony.
The Project panellist made a name for himself Internationally as Pigsy in the Netflix series The New Adventures of Monkey, which he filmed in West Auckland in 2017. More recently he played Bob in US sitcom The Young Rock, about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's early years.
In 2017 Thomson stretched his romantic comedy skills in Gary of the Pacific.
Filming on How to Please a Woman starts this week.
