Storyline

Hazel runs a beauty salon out of her house, but makes extra money by providing ruthless women to do hit jobs. K.T. is a parasite, and contacts Hazel looking for work when he runs out of money. She is reluctant to use him for a hit, since she prefers using women, but decides to try him on a trial basis. Meanwhile, the local cop she pays off wants an arrest to make it look like he's actually doing his job, but she doesn't want to sacrifice any of her "associates." Several other side plots are woven in, populated with characters from the sleazy side of life. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

It's Just A Lot of Outrageous Fun!
11 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite films. Such a great parody about "good" and "evil". Carroll Bakker is outstanding. It also gives some great insights as to what it was like to live in NYC in the late 1970s. Fantabulous! It's a story about a mom who does odd jobs for the mafia. She "opens the channels between you and a client." The jobs range from messing up a bathroom in a diner, to killing a dog for a vicious lesbian. In the end though, her karma catches up with her. She always uses women to do her dirty work, and the one time that she uses a (hot) male who she's sexually attracted to, her entire world falls apart. Women are easier because they are inherently more vicious. Please watch this film. It's an outstanding slice of life movie.
