Dumb-how the not-so-mighty have fallen even farther
28 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I suppose at some level this is a little bit appealing. A group of beauty contestants forced to be holed up in a sheet metal shed, awaiting a ransom. But it's all exploitative and dumb and pointless. Poor Chuck Connors; poor Gary Collins, poor Henry Gibson. Don't you feel for them? They were pretty important in their own worlds at one time. Not much left to say. They must have needed a few bucks. The girls are nice to look at and that maniac woman with her machine gun waving endlessly is sort of amusing, but it's all claptrap. It also suffers from one of the dullest decades in history, the 70's. It has that vapid look about it. Add to the do not resuscitate file.
