Storyline

Scream of the Bikini is a 1960s action-spy-thriller by acclaimed South American director, Fernando Fernandez. Jasmine Orosco and Paola Apanapal - in their English language film debuts - are Bridget and Sophia: gorgeous super models by day, brutal bounty hunters by night. Murder, intrigue and pillow fights await our beautiful leading ladies at every turn, as they match wits and martial arts with a coterie of madmen and women bent on world domination. Filmed somewhere in South America in 1966, and poorly translated and dubbed by Germans, this unintentionally funny James Bond meets Barbarella love child plumbs the seedy depths of the international fashion model/psycho-killer underworld with a boldness that only a gun to the head can provide. Written by Bill Robens

The Ladies of James Bond meet Inspecter Clouseau
27 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw this moving in Los Angeles recently, and I think the title of this review accurately describes how sexy, funny and entertaining this film is to watch. A spoof on foreign crossover films of the 1960's; it's a sexy-spy-thriller by a fictional South American director and stars. Fernando Fernandez directs Jasmine Orosco (Kelsey Wedeen) as Bridget and Paola Apanapal (Rebecca Larson) as Sophia, in their first English language film. It's kitschy, edgy and silly, set against a '60s hipster backdrop. Beautiful and delightfully dingy Bridget and beautiful and exotically dingy Sophia are super models with secret identities -- they are spies! -- brutal, yes, but they would never miss a nail appointment or go outdoors if they weren't dressed just so. Self-absorbed and narcissistic, but with hearts of gold, or at least, to naive to be conniving, the girls are unlikely but delightful heroes.

Intrigue follows them on their adventure. Humbert, debonair man-about-town and dangerous, is a mystery man. The girls seem taken with him, but where do his loyalties lie? Who are the bad guys, who are the good? Whom can the girls trust? After stumbling across a clue that set them on their way, they romp, stalk and tip toe -- mostly dressed in bikinis -- from a hip Hollywood Hills pool party to a haute couture fashion shoot, out decipher and spoil the hellish plans of evil mastermind, The Chairman. Nevertheless, there's always time for a cocktail or a pillow fight. The girls prove that in the world of spies, it's better to be lucky than good.

The film is very well acted; great characters and unlikely situations abound, along with good pacing and lots of laughs and knee slaps throughout. With a great score, costumes, sets and dialog cadence, director Kiff Scholl does a wonderful job of staying true to the look and feel of this 1960s genre. It's a fun movie going experience I can recommend without caveat or reservation.
