Storyline

Jody, a juvenile delinquent, escapes from reform school by stabbing a matron and attempting to burn down the building and then takes refuge in a house owned by an ambitious politician David Patton. Despite the hellcat's ample charms, the would-be officeholder wants nothing to do with her and tries to drive her away. She responds by shortly returning to his house accompanied by a gang of delinquent pals and taking him hostage. A sudden act of violence causes more trouble, leading Jody and her gang to hijack David and force him to drive a getaway car to Mexico. Written by alfiehitchie

Woody Guthrie meets Mister Ed meets Carl Stalling
29 April 2014 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I wouldn't call "Kitten with a Whip" as bad as some of the movies that "Mystery Science Theater 3000" has riffed, but it's still basically a turkey. This story of a juvenile delinquent hiding in a senator's house comes as across as an excuse to show off Ann-Margret's body. The movie DOES have that going for it, but the rest of the cast doesn't have much to do.

To poke fun at the movie, Mike and the 'bots imply that a doll-filled room is Michael Jackson's room and say that an elderly man is Laurence Olivier. At one point they even meet an actual whip-bearing kitten (played by MST3K cast member Kevin Murphy).

Basically, it's the sort of movie that they probably had fun making. It was likely a surprise to everyone when Ann-Margret starred in "Carnal Knowledge", "Tommy" and "Magic". More recently she appeared in "Any Given Sunday" and the suspense thriller "Memory".

Seriously, Dr. Forrester. What's the big idea of using TV's Frank as a piñata?
