The story behind this movie is interesting - more interesting than the finished movie itself. After producing "Big Bad Mama II", Roger Corman decided to take advantage of the leftover sets and props by making another movie with them. It was a rushed production, and it shows. The script is sometimes garbled, with plot developments that are not quite explained, and other times the story seems to be just spinning its wheels and not progressing fast enough. Clearly a few more rewrites were needed, but even a solid script couldn't make up for some other flaws. The acting is pretty awful by its no-name cast, for one thing. More pressing are the production values, which are unbelievably cheap; I've seen better set construction and dressing in high school plays. Two things save the movie from total decay, the first being that the filmmakers don't take things completely seriously, with some comic relief that is a little amusing. Also, the ending of the movie is somewhat surprising and not predictable. These things don't make the movie worth watching, however. If you want to see a Roger Corman production about 1930s bank robbers, watch the original "Big Bad Mama" instead.
