Storyline

Teddy, the daughter of a very prominent family, is released to them by the juvenile authorities. Teddy is out to get revenge on the very bad community and starts her own girl gang, who seduce, waylay and rob male victims. Joe is a fence-and-receiver of stolen goods and provides the girls with guns and encouragement to rob a warehouse. The bad girls are very bad when doing it, fail it, and are forced to hide out. Joy Jenkins, who has been intimate with Joe, learns that he is two-timing her, with Trixie the Tricking Tart, and confronts him with the fact that she is pregnant. He brushes her off and she promptly shoots him fatally as Joy doesn't want to be an unwed mother. Meanwhile, Teddy and Dumb Dora Jones steal a car and make a break for a hideout in the country but they are spotted by the police. In the car chase, Teddy's car crashes, Teddy is killed outright and Dora dies in a hospital. City life goes on as normal. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pretty bad 50's potboiler
20 August 2001 | by (Des Moines, IA) – See all my reviews

"Gun Girls" is a pretty sorry entry in the 50's juvenile delinquent potboiler parade. The story is pretty typical: teens girls ignore their probation officer's advice and pull burglaries and robberies, until they get in too far over their heads, and must pay the ultimate price. The acting, dialogue, sets, and even the editing are strictly amateurish (some scenes end too abruptly, others linger way past the point where the director should have yelled "cut!!"). But the film's biggest problem (or highlight, if you're into camp) are the gun girls themselves. To put it rather bluntly, these girls ain't girls. There isn't one of them who looks to be under 40. When the film opens with a shot of some pretty hard boiled looking gals in a police line-up, and the narrator starts talking about juvenile delinquency, you have to wonder who he's talking about. These "teenagers" look old enough to be the parents of teenagers!!

All this, plus a death scene at the film's end that goes on longer than Ali MacGraw's in "Love Story", make for pretty rough sledding, even for lovers of bad cinema.
