How Paul Henreid ever got mixed up directing exploitation B-flicks, one may never know...
30 January 2010 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Group of wayward women pull off a daring heist and bury the loot, but when the ringleader's little sister becomes romantically involved with "a flatfoot", the other girls get impatient for their pay-off. Classy actor Paul Henreid proves not to be very adept directing other actors, but in the case of "Girls on the Loose" he can be forgiven as nobody on-screen proves to have any acting talent. Heavy-lidded, tough-talking Mara Corday's slight resemblance to Gina Gershon provides some amusement, as does the brittle-as-nails dialogue. Still, this Universal programmer is mercilessly padded (even at just 77 minutes) with nightclub numbers, idle chit-chat, drunk routines, and a cat fight to the death! Too bad it isn't exciting, suspenseful, or well-made. *1/2 from ****
