Trivia

Very influential to Quentin Tarantino when making Pulp Fiction (1994). "The Bonnie Situation" segment in his movie was titled as such as a direct homage to this film, and--as in this film--Bonnie is never seen. See more »

Typical '70's Drive-In Picture
10 June 2004 | by ballston28See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie on a triple bill with "Policewomen" and "Superchick". "Bonnie's Kids" was typical drive-in fare; lots of killings, lesbianism, rebellious teens, self-absorbed/hedonistic pleasures; about the only topic it didn't touch was getting high. One thing that always bothered me about this movie: What was the cash for? Drugs? Blackmail? Extortion? Protection? Funny Money? That in itself should've merited a sequel! The other notable thing was that NOBODY in this "epic" (I use the term loosely) went on to bigger success. The intro indicates that this was Robin Mattson's first film, whoever she is!

On a scale of 1-10...hmmm...maybe a 7.25.
