Lonely B-movie addicts seeking jag-off material, yet too timid to rent porn, should probably skip this title. There's hardly any sex or violence, and no used up Scream Queens. It does have three cute, working class girls on the lam from gangsters, red-neck chauvinists, and Eddie Deezen, beating a trail to Mexico. This sure sounds like Thelma and Louise, and there are scenes Thelma shamelessly lifted right out of Bimbos. Considering Bimbos probably had the same total budget as Ridley Scott had for cafe lattes, you have to admire this spunky little movie's quirky feminist ethos and originality. Elizabeth Kaiten is adorable. Three mariachis pretend to play instruments that have no bearing on the music, just like the Monkees. A blast.
How can you not love this campy B flick! Made on a VERY low budget by people who made the most of it. "Thelma & Louise" which came a few years later lifted the basic plot. Featuring characters named "Peaches" & "Shifty Joe", future director Nick Cassavettes & the immortal line "Oh no, a bimbo with a gun!"
There is a special place in my heart for this wacky film. Not only is the plot similar to Thelma and Louise, it came out before that one! It's lighthearted, full of one-liners, and surprisingly tame on the "let's show some breasts" element. I appreciate the fact that nudity was not a chief concern for this story. I never thought these gals were dumb at all, the references to them as bimbos came from the "dudes" who were just not very bright themselves. And like Thelma and Louise, they rise above all the obstacles in their way. Think of this film as celebration of spiritedness and going for your dreams, well, even if it's a cowabunga barbecue! Favorite line: "MMMMM I love pancakes!"
I can never understand those out there who " love B-movies" yet render actual expectations , rather high ones at that, for movies that clearly were not made to be taken seriously.. when you rent a movie called assault of the killer bimbos it's pretty obvious what your getting into. I admit there are those movies that are horrific camp,big-budget and other wise but this is not one of them. Hilarious one liners , and a very drug induced performance by Griffin O' Neal perk this classic to new heights ... I suggest renting it if your a true B-movie freak and/or just need a break from the next guaranteed big budget turd of year .....

I was curious about this movie as it featured an appearance from Nick
Cassavetes, who I think is a great actor, and there were possibly car
chases in it, so I just had to see it. The movie is certainly never
going to win any Oscars, but I don't care as I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The three 'Bimbos' are all very attractive and well-performed and
Cassavetes and his 'WRAITH' co-stars Griffin O'Neal and Jamie Bozian
were good as the stoner surfers that the girls meet while on the run.
There is only one real car chase in the film, but it's done very well, and features a great cameo from professional nerd Eddie Deezen as a clueless police officer and a unique use for lingerie. ASSAULT is a rather short film, but then again, the film makers probably didn't want the joke to wear thin. I lover how the girls get revenge on the guy who framed them, and earlier in the film where they give a lecherous, crooked gas station owner what-for when he tries to rip them off. It's also funny how Peaches (the 'leader' of the Bimbos) tries to artistically justify go-go dancing.
Overall, this was a great, funny movie, with sexy girls and great humour. May not be to everyone's taste, but I liked it.
Expecting some lamebrain sitcom reject, I found "Assault of the Killer Bimbos" to be good stupid fun. Christina Whitaker made the biggest impression on me; I found her to be funny, smart, and rather attractive. To coin a cliche, don't expect Shakespeare, and you won't go away disappointed. An excellent "girls just wanna have fun" movie; the overall acting and story are better than what the box at the video store led me to believe.

After getting in an argument with their boss named "Shifty Joe" (David Marsh), two go-go dancers by the names of "Peaches" (Christina Whitaker) and "Lulu" (Elizabeth Kaitan) hear a gunshot and go to Shifty Joe's office to find out what's going on. When they get there the murderer named "Vinnie" (Mike Muscat) hands Lulu the gun and flees the scene. A moment later several people arrive in Shifty Joe's office and see his dead body and Lulu holding the gun. Unable to convince anyone that they are innocent they quickly make a break for it and head to Mexico in their car. Along the way they stop at a diner and when they are recognized they grab a waitress named "Darleen" (Tammara Souza) as a hostage and once again make a break for it. Now rather than reveal any more of this movie I will just say that for a low-budget "bimbo movie" this one wasn't too bad as the plot was mildly entertaining, the wardrobes were pretty nice and Elizabeth Kaitan was certainly attractive. On the flip side, the comedy wasn't exactly on the cutting edge and it could have used a bit more sex appeal than what was shown. Again, it wasn't a bad movie but even so it wasn't that great either. Accordingly, I rate it as just slightly below average.
Brought to you by the same people who made 'Slave Girls From Beyond
Infinity' and 'Sorority Babes In The Slime Ball Bowl-a-Rama'(of which I
loved) this one wasn't up to par.
Elizabeth Kaitan (or Cayton, from the movie Slave Girls) is a co star in this flick that is kind of a Thelma and Louis b-movie. Two exotic dancers (bimbos) get framed for a murder by being bimbos (blatantly stupid). They hop in a car and partake in some adventures.
They meet up with surfer guys, gangsters, and cops. Pretty well getting chased around the highways until they finally get to Mexico.
The girls flaunt their sexy bodies and act totally like bimbos...I suppose the main idea for the movie. Absolutely nothing else happens in this movie.
You gotta love this movie.
In this one, "bimbo" isn't so much an insult as it is a call to arms to just about every woman in it. They band together, seek out their fortunes and make names and faces for themselves against the tyrannical machinations of the men surrounding them.
And if they happen to be go-go dancers, all the better.
And the cast! Not only is patron saint Kaitan featured, but so are familiar names like Cassavetes and O'Neal (offspring, not fathers), as well as the big mack daddy himself, Eddie Deezen. With his name on the credits, you can be assured of at least one funny moment. Maybe two.
In the end, they may "Assault" but these "Bimbos" are basically just good-natured gals looking for a good time. And MAN, do they look comfortable stretched out on the beach.
Two stars, but two well-meaning, good-natured stars. If its laughs you want and lots of go-go dancing, not to mention Eddie Deezen, rent this "Killer" movie.
With the title "Assault Of The Killer Bimbos", and the premise of two
airheaded women on the run from the law, you may think that you'll get
a lot of sleazy fun with this movie. Alas, the actual results are
somewhat of a letdown.
The women in the movie are written to be a likable bunch, and the actresses playing them are a talented bunch, but the screenplay is pretty one-note with them. After a while, these characters seem to just be doing the same thing over and over again. That may be because the screenplay stops advancing the plot after the first twenty minutes or so, and does not start advancing the plot until the last ten minutes.
Eddie Deezen does liven things up with his appearance (no movie can be completely bad if it has Eddie Deezen), but he's only in the movie for a few minutes.
Also, the screenplay is seriously lacking in sleaze. There's hardly any nudity, no sex, and a minimum amount of PG-style violence.
Did this movie inspire "Thelma & Louise"? Probably not, but you never know.
