I don't care how hot they are
8 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

OK first of all , just because you put guns in the hands of women ,make all the men dicks, then paste in a " forbidden " romantic situation , does NOT make this piece of fluff in any way empowering. This movie might have been directed by a woman , but it was OK'd by fat white men in expensive suits. They saw the words "schoolgirl" and "lesbian" and smacked their meaty hands together.Hell even Barbwire had more to it! ( I feel dirty saying that)

You want a real tongue in cheek woman oriented action movie ? Watch Tank girl. It also has the benefit of being based off of a comic people have heard of . One word for DEBS , exploitative. I'm a guy , and though I have a soft spot in my heart for hot women in little outfits , even my penis was ashamed of this one.
