Gang of transvestite bikers go on a road trip., 5 December 2002
Author: icelandknight from Reykjavik, Iceland

I own and love this movie. I feel it's a must-have next to "Easy Rider" and "Roadside Prophets". It is an 'independent' film, and that comes through quite clearly. Personally, I'm a biker who doesn't take himself too seriously, as well as being a Monty Python fan. I find this movie to be very similar in humor as early Python. It's not to everyone's taste, but the juxtaposition of opposites as well as a cool soundtrack is what make this movie 'special'.

One has come to associate biker gangs with stereotypical cold, mean, macho attitude. So the viewer is left more or less like the cops that stop the gang en route, and are baffled when they don't conform with the typical badass biker attitude they expect to find.

For sure there are some signs of this film easily being classified as a 'video nasty' by some, for example the General, who is supposed to be something like the Nazi Party representative in the "Blues Brothers", becomes somewhat tiresome at length, but there are lots of scenes from their road trips and interaction with others to make up for that. Perhaps a thirst for MORE biker movies excuses this movie's shortcomings, but there aren't that many biker movies to choose from, let alone biker movies that are humorous without just being an obvious parody of the biker stereotype (like "Masters of Menace"). I watch this movie once every two years and afterwards I find myself singing the theme song about going out and looking for America. Sounds like I'll have to go watch it again now, I've forgotten the words to the song! Time for a reviewing!
