To losers its a way of life - Bummer!
3 April 2002 | by (Streeb Greebling Acres) – See all my reviews

The multi talented Dave Friedman produced this "groupie" based trash classic.

It has the look of "The Blast off Girls" but it altogether nastier and more brutal, with a line in the trailer "You dont have to Rape a Groupie, You just have to Ask" (this was turned to Assault for ad's) you can get the picture of what your going to get.

I'm not going to get into detail, but if you love Friedman then get this movie and if your just dipping your toes it the water this is a good place to start
