Quotes

Johnny LaGuardia: Apathy... banality... boredom... television. But a new iconoclast has come to save us. it's the Sleez Sisters. It's Nikki and Pamela. Go to it, girls. Lots of letters and lots of calls. Lots of sightings of our little Loch Ness Monster.

The film is very cool. Robin Johnson is GREAT as Nikki. The soundtrack is one of my favorite movie soundtracks of all time. This was the first VHS movie I ever bought. Fans of punk music and punk movies will LOVE this film.
