Storyline

A newspaper publisher's daughter suffers from neglect by her parents. She and her friends turn to crime by dressing up like men, holding up gas stations, raping young men at gunpoint, and having makeout parties when her parents are away. Their "fence" gets them to trash the school on request of sinister un-American clients, and they run afoul of the law, apple pie, and God himself. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Paula Parkins: Hi, Mom. Got time to talk a minute? It's rather important.
Jane Parkins: Good gracious, no! I'm an hour late already! "Charity First" and all that sort of thing, you know. Besides, what can be so important in your young life as to warrant my attention so drastically?

Silly, funny and very very BAD!
22 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Incredibly dumb and utterly predictable story of a rich teen girl who, not given love by her parents, starts a girl gang. They rob gas stations, rape guys (!!!) and kill a policeman.

All the "teenagers" in this film are easily in their late 20s/early 30s, the acting is all horrible and the script has every cliche imaginable with hilarious dialogue--it comes as no surprise that it was written by the immortal Ed Wood Jr.!

Worth seeing for laughs. Best lines--"They're shooting back!" and "It ain't supposed to be like this."
