Storyline

Ceil and Enis are a happy if wacky female couple until giant baby son Junior (who sports a mustache but fits in his crib just dandy) develops a fondness for hot dogs and other symbols of manliness (along with many things edible, phallic or not) and decides to bust out of his confining crib to raid the fridge and avenge his overly protective mothers. A high camp low drag tongue in cheek lesbian chicken murder comedy which references everything from other campy classics (John Waters, Kenneth Anger) to the likes of Hitchcock and Sirk. Cheesy fun. (Note: this is put here so folks don't continue to review a DIFFERENT film called Junior by a fellow named Jim Henly--so hey! this is NOT the same Junior) Written by the filmmaker herself

An Excellent Little Film
6 October 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When I saw the box, I thought it would just be another slasher film, one of those endless country rip offs of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Friday the 13th." I was pleasantly surprised and astonished to find a movie that reminded me much more of "Thelma and Louise." Simply put, two 'bad girls' are released from Prison, after a nasty encounter with a wannabe pimp and a lecherous gas station attendent, they decide to settle down and go straight, renting a small marina and going into legit business. Turns out the marina is party central for the local rednecks. Much of the movie turns into the escalating conflict between the girls and the rednecks, lead by Junior. To say more would be to spoil it. It's a B movie of course, not art, there's abundant titilation and nudity or semi-nudity, there's no shortage of gore effects, violence, and all the stuff we've come to expect from a sleazy B-movie. On the other hand, it's all very well done. The nudity and semi-nudity are never presented flatly, but instead come across as both natural to the situation and very sexy. The gross out bits are well done and always introduced suddenly into natural situations, which enhance their effectiveness. The action scenes are also very well done and the quality and level of pyrotechnics are quite impressive, there's a real effort to do it differently and to make it interesting. The plot delivers its jolts in a serviceable manner and even manages to throw in a few twists. The two female leads are terrific, considering their characters are ex-cons, ex-hookers and start the movie by stealing a car, in a normal movie in this genre, they'd be doomed. In this movie they go on to become heroines, watchable, appealling, sometimes flawed and harsh and unpleasant, but ultimately likeable. They aren't sugar coated, but you find yourselves rooting for them. They're like Thelma and Louise, only tougher. Bottom line, it's a drive in theatre style B movie, without pretensions, but it is a superior example of the breed. This was the first film of Marcy Hedy Lynn, who wrote, produced, directed, did cinematography, art direction and editing. For all I know, she may have acted. As a one woman show, and as a debut, this is an extraodinarily polished work. Marcy Hedy Lynn did four other films after this, up to 1994. Not much information on the others. Based on this, I would have to guess that she was an extraordinarily gifted regional film maker whose career was based on the video marketplace before the majors moved in and squeezed everyone out. If anyone has any information on her, or on her films, please let me know.
