10 June 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Usually I'm a bit more subtle and explain why it isn't to my personal taste. This isn't as inept to think to yourself "What am I doing with my life? I need a hobby or something. Just anything to get me out of bad movie watching" (Which was the case with Monster A Go Go) but this is awful on it's own terms as well.

This movie is about women wrestling. No it isn't it's about a dodgy businessman who owns women wrestlers contracts and can't gain $30,000. No, yes, no, yes, no, yes!... Well do you see how jumbled and underdeveloped this story is? Maybe it's crap editing (The editing job in this is the Walter Murch job of bad editing) maybe it's a lousy script. You are just never sure what this movie is or what it's trying to be.

The editing is really bad as I said earlier. You have 7 minute long scenes of women wrestling thrown in there to make the movie more (unsuccessfully) interesting and conversations that have people go onto the next word before they've finished the last one (??? I hope this makes sense???). It was fun on MST3K but awful here.
