Hot Girls!
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The girl who plays Susan is a real hottie.I'd like to third her Reich! I wonder what happened to her.She should have been a big star.Any one reading this should really check this movie out.Good production values .(for a b movie.)Great sound track.The plot is awesome.Really liked the girl who played Susan.Hopefully there will be a sequel.Nazis are not funny.Where else has this film been seen?I know it was shown at Cannes.It was also shown at few other festivals.Mostly filmed in Dallas Texas.Is there anywhere I can get a copy?This movie should be on HBO or maybe USA network.I have read that it was shown on cable in Brasil. Go figure thats where all the old Nazis live.Maybe it should be seen on satellite.
