Hippy exploitation film provides unintentional laughs.
5 March 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A drug deal goes disastrously wrong for two long hairs when they run into cops at a roadblock. They kill the pigs and go on an orgy of kidnap and killing. Particular highlights include the theft of an ice cream truck complete with its camp, whining driver and a hippy hangout in the desert peopled with stoned hippy chicks and a pretentious hippy drug dealer. This is a film obviously inspired by the likes of 'Easy River' and 'Electra Glide in Blue', but it has a very amateur improvised feel to it, especially the dialogue which is a real hoot of late sixties cliches. The names of the cast and crew are the same which gives it all a 'lets do the movie right here' feeling. Howard Ziehm was one of the producers and Rick Baker did the gory gunshot make up.
