The original title for the film was Desperate Teenage Runaways. Producer Kim Fowley who owned the name of the all-girl rock band The Runaways made director David Markey change it (because of the similarities). See more »
This is a campy little movie that looks like a person afflicted with Parkinson's disease shot most of it; a corny punk trash flick that follows the rise to fame and fortune of the all-girl teen band the Lovedolls. Chock full of SHOCKING and OUTRAGEOUS behavior, hilariously bad acting, and a pretty good 80's punk soundtrack.
There are many priceless bits that make this film a lot of fun for anyone who's a fan of cheesy flicks. Highly recommended for lovers of bad movies!
