Storyline

A newspaper publisher's daughter suffers from neglect by her parents. She and her friends turn to crime by dressing up like men, holding up gas stations, raping young men at gunpoint, and having makeout parties when her parents are away. Their "fence" gets them to trash the school on request of sinister un-American clients, and they run afoul of the law, apple pie, and God himself. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Trivia

Goofs

The courtroom scene when Paula is found guilty, followed by a newspaper that reads sentencing will be next Tuesday. The only thing that changes in the next court room scene (Tuesday) is the mother's hat. Everyone else is wearing the same clothes, and the books on the table are in the same position. See more »

Quotes

Paula Parkins: Hi, Mom. Got time to talk a minute? It's rather important.
Jane Parkins: Good gracious, no! I'm an hour late already! "Charity First" and all that sort of thing, you know. Besides, what can be so important in your young life as to warrant my attention so drastically?

Unique
12 August 1999 | by QuetzlSee all my reviews

This film is pretty steady and mediocre (you can tell Ed didn't direct it), lacking the weirdness and spastic nature of Wood's other films. But, it also happens to be the only film you'll ever see where a MAN IS RAPED BY A GANG OF GIRLS! A truly unique moment in film history.
