Quotes

Inspector Martell: What we have here is a large organized crime wave obviously committed by a well-organized gang of women.
Lacy Bond: Like a female mafia?
Inspector Martell: It sure looks that way. And pardon my pun, but our male undercover agents haven't been able to penetrate the gang.
Lacy Bond: So you need a woman - pardon my pun - to go undercover.
Pete Peterson: Or under the covers!

An enjoyable drive-in flick!
8 June 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

"Policewomen" (actually, there is technically only ONE policewoman in the movie) is not as sleazy or action-filled as other drive-in movies of the period. However, it does manage to be much more enjoyable than many of them.

Much of this is due to Sondra Currie, who is a delight as the lead. She gives her character confidence, a sense of humor, and a spirit of adventure. Whether arguing with her superiors or in hand-to-hand combat, she constantly shines. Judging from her performance here, it's a mystery why she didn't go onto bigger things, or at the very least become a prominent star in the drive-in genre.

But there is additional enjoyment beyond Currie. There is a good amount of humor - some unintentional, like how Currie's policemen co-workers are surprisingly sexist. However, most of the comedy is intentional and pretty funny at that. The plot has some outlandish touches (an all-girl gang that spends most of its time in bikinis?), a cameo by William Smith, Elizabeth Stuart has some hilariously stingy one-liners, and there is a respectable amount of nudity and sex. The best bits are the martial arts sequences, which are unusually very well choreographed (and surprisingly brutal at times.) Dim the lights, pretend you're at the drive-in, and sit back and have some fun.
