Storyline

The Black Widows, a teenage girl gang, find one of their number killed; they suspect Barbara, sometime girlfriend of the leader of rival gang The Vandals. As the gangs prepare for a rumble, we glimpse the members' home lives, exaggerating every type of family dysfunction; but that of their "average American" quarry is no better. Full of shadowy urban night scenes. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Quotes

Pre-credits titles: This is not a pretty picture... It could not be pretty and still be true. What happens to the girl is unimportant... What happens to the others is more than important; it is the most vital issue of our time. This story is about a sickness, a spreading epidemic that threatens to destroy our very way of life. We are not doctors... We can offer no cure... But we know that a cure must be found...

Dumb but watchable.
10 July 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

TEENAGE DOLL is a bad film. If you are looking for good acting and a well written film, you can keep looking. However, because the film so often goes over the top and because it's a bit ridiculous, it's all very watchable. In other words, as an exposée on "youth running wild", it's actually quite funny.

The film begins with a girls' gang discovering one of their members dead next to a set of stairs. The Black Widows are sure that a local teen did this, as the dead girl and Barbara were enemies--Barbara MUST have done it. Much of the film consists of these crazy dames looking for the assumed culprit to teach her a lesson. And, to do so, they steal a gun and some cash (why they need the money, I have no idea). Amazingly, however, after a long and convoluted journey to the final showdown, Barbara turns herself in to the police AND the girls gang decides that they need to give up their vendetta and stop getting in trouble!!! Huh?!? For the entire film they talk of revenge and then at the end, it all just fizzles?!?! This is a major letdown and essentially you have a film about wild youth who really don't do anything bad...other than have bad manners! The message seems to be that "nice girls", like Barbara, should NOT have anything to do with "bad girls"--lest their lives be destroyed! While there is, of course, some truth to this, it was handled poorly and several of the ladies simply were poor actresses and the writing really was poor. The ending, in particular, was bad but other notable bad scenes were the guy who taunts Barbara near the end--what's up with that?! Overall, the film is pretty poor but also kind of funny in a kitschy way. In other words, you can laugh at how silly and sanitized this film is, as for a girls gang, they are amazingly lame.
