Dr. Goldfoot plots to use female robots to blow up high-ranking NATO generals, igniting a war between Russia and America. It's up to girl-crazed SIC agent Bill Dexter, aided by bumbling Italian doormen Franco and Ciccio, to stop him.
Dr. Goldfoot has invented an army of bikini-clad robots who are programmed to seek out wealthy men and charm them into signing over their assets. Skirt-chasing SIC agents Craig Gamble and Todd Armstrong set out to foil the fiendish plot.

Dr. Goldfoot once again plots to take over the world by using female robots designed to blow up high-ranking generals of NATO countries, starting a war between Russia and America. It's up to disgraced SIC agent Bill Dexter to stop Goldfoot.Written by
The opening of this film describes the plot as another attempt by Dr. Goldfoot to conquer the world. But in the first film in the sequence, "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine," Dr. Goldfoot was using his bikini-clad robots only to romance rich men and bilk them out of their fortunes, not to conquer the world.

A rather bizarre mix of surreal gags, verbal comedy (including some breaking of the fourth wall) and juvenile slapstick (prepare for lots and lots of fast motion), "Dr. Goldfoot And The Girl Bombs" suffers from often shoddy special effects, and Franco Franchi's mugging will not be to everybody's taste, to put it mildly, but it also has its strengths: Vincent Price is far and away the best thing in the film, clearly having a ball with atypical (for him) low comedy, but hitting some high spots as well, through his excellent delivery ("And then there were none!"). The women are beautiful in that still-unsurpassed 1960s way, and they are everywhere you look! The one with the largest role is a young Laura Antonelli, in one of her first films: not only does she have a steamy seduction scene (playing a robot version of her human character), but she also shows a knack for slapstick comedy. I'd say take a chance with this film, even if you don't like it, it's short enough (about 80 minutes) not to take up too much of your time. Funniest bit: the recreation of the classic "mirror sequence" from "Duck Soup". ** out of 4.
