Well-made bimbo comedy will have you "come and get it".
26 February 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

For those of you who voted so lowly for this "new wave" concoction, I'm too ashamed to say why you've missed something that turned out as a pure delight. What's the problem with shorts as high as the buttocks, or rock music, or a movie that "looks" dated? Think, T-H-I-N-K, before and after you watch any movie that's been out for a long period of time! You might be surprised!

Now that's been said and clear, I must say that LUNCH WAGON is the best "bimbo" flick yet in the exploitation comedy category, based on my viewings of hundreds of rental store tapes. Much of what I've seen before didn't impress me at all, but this one's exceptional in several departments. Not too long ago, I've watched GAS PUMP GIRLS, another good recommendation which was decent, but this one stands out better. It's better than most, really. You can discover that one of the three girls (almost resembling CLUELESS) in the cast has a unique personality of a bodybuilder, which is a nice gag. These girls take this movie seriously without an excuse for the "naked" truth every so often, with fine acting. The group doing the cool tunes on stage is the one-hit wonder 80s band Missing Persons. A clever plot and a lot of hilarity bodes pretty high with positive results. In other words, a nice soft, sweet, sexy exploitation comedy gem that stands straight and doesn't tip over the wall. The print quality is absolutely sharp, providing you search for the Media version. One thing I didn't like, though, and don't guess! BOOM MICS!!! At the bottom of your screen, they really show off! Aaaargh!!! But forget the common flaw that's occurred in several other drive-in films. LUNCH WAGON is a definite must that will make you want to "Come And Get It!".
