Storyline

Sisters Myra and Ellie have finally had enough of their miserable, dead-end lives. When their step-father Charley (The Bonnie from the title being long dead) tried to rape Myra, Ellie ventilates him with a shotgun, and the pair run off to their wealthy uncle's mansion in El Paso. From that point on, the two undergo a transformation in their personalities, and start to enjoy living their lives on the wild side. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Very influential to Quentin Tarantino with his film "Pulp Fiction." So much so, that "The Bonnie Situation" segment in his movie was titled as such as a direct homage, and, like in "Bonnie's Kids," that Bonnie is also never seen. See more »

Cracker-Jack drive-in rollick, among the best of its kind.
29 November 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

For small-fry entertainment, you can't beat BONNIE'S KIDS...it's clever, briskly paced, and sexy as Hell. Ambitiously played by a cast of highly capable performers, all of whom should have been better utilized in Hollywood, this unassuming little offering stands as one of the crown jewels of 70s drive-in fodder.

Noir-ish story revolves around a pair of gorgeous young sisters who are determined to get ahead no matter who gets screwed in the process. When a private detective comes round to deliver a "special package" to one of the girls, things really start cookin'...a crime story with more flurried excitation, concupiscent titillation, and shifty maneuvers than a Crisco coated Naked Twister marathon.

On a scale of 1-10, BONNIE'S KIDS gets a solid 8.5...right up there with THE CANDY SNATCHERS as a sleazy must-see classic.
