Storyline

Teddy, the daughter of a very prominent family, is released to them by the juvenile authorities. Teddy is out to get revenge on the very bad community and starts her own girl gang, who seduce, waylay and rob male victims. Joe is a fence-and-receiver of stolen goods and provides the girls with guns and encouragement to rob a warehouse. The bad girls are very bad when doing it, fail it, and are forced to hide out. Joy Jenkins, who has been intimate with Joe, learns that he is two-timing her, with Trixie the Tricking Tart, and confronts him with the fact that she is pregnant. He brushes her off and she promptly shoots him fatally as Joy doesn't want to be an unwed mother. Meanwhile, Teddy and Dumb Dora Jones steal a car and make a break for a hideout in the country but they are spotted by the police. In the car chase, Teddy's car crashes, Teddy is killed outright and Dora dies in a hospital. City life goes on as normal. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Timothy Farrell is in the film....'nuff said!
28 May 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In the 1950s, Timothy Farrell appeared in a string of exploitation films, such as "Glen or Glenda", "Jail Bait" (both by Ed Wood) and "Racket Girls". The films were universally trashy, poorly made and highly salacious....just the sorts of cult films bad film fans love to watch! So, when I saw he was one of the stars of "Gun Girls", and I am a bad film buff, I knew I had to see it!

The film purports to be a film about the 'teenage problem' by showing a lot of actresses (all appearing to be in the 25-40 year age bracket) engaged in various petty as well as violent crimes. And, as the narrator says, the girls(?) know how to 'roll a marijuana'! For the most part, the ladies in the story confine their criminal activities to armed robberies and assaults...with the help of a sleazy fence (Farrell). However, when they get tired of splitting the loot with the fence, they considering going into business for themselves. What's next? Watch the picture and find out for yourself.

While there is some very bad acting by some of the folks in the film, it's not nearly as awful as the worst of Timothy Farrell's work. Now I am NOT saying the acting is good...just not as awful as it could have been. The same goes for the script--it's bad but could have been more salacious and slap-dash...though it's far from great! I laughed at how poorly written these 'teen bad girls' were...and are among the stupidest criminals you'll ever see...leaving many witnesses, fingerprints and even a gun at the scene of a crime! Master criminals they are NOT!

If you love bad exploitation films, "Gun Girls" is worth seeing. Plus, being not THAT awful, it's also a bit more watchable than many in the genre. Still, the average person would not enjoy the movie and would find it very tough to finish the picture. Watch at your own risk!

By the way, if you'd like to play a drinking game while watching "Gun Girls", take a shot for each instance where one of the girls takes off her top for absolutely no reason!
