Dumb fun (with the emphasis on 'dumb')
1 July 1999 | by AdecSee all my reviews

'Blondes have more guns' is an amusing, joke-a-minute ultra low budget comedy from the Troma stable, and while it definitely lacks the sheen (no pun intended) of similar comedy spoofs such as 'Hot Shots' there is still fun to be had here if you can forgive the nonexistent budget.

Direction by George Merriweather is passable (just), and while the jokes only work probably half the time at best the script does keep shooting them rapidfire one after the other so that you don't notice the ones that tank quite so much as you otherwise may have. Apart from that the script is the usual spoof material, a paper thin plot that just acts as an excuse to take the piss out of films like 'Basic Instinct', 'Lethal Weapon' et al.

If this film has one major flaw it's that even at 86 minutes it can't quite sustain it's length, and seems to run out of steam (and jokes) near the end, but then that same complaint is true for most films of this type.

Performance wise it's no great shakes either, however both Michael McGaharn and Elizabeth Key are pretty good in the lead roles of dumb cop on the case and prime suspect respectively, while Derek Yee, Ramona Lisa and Richard Neil all add to the fun with amusing performances.

In short this is goofy low budget fun, and if you don't mind that fact and like this type of film then you could do worse than to check this one out, however if your the type of person that needs their films to have a certain level of gloss to them then you'd best avoid this one (and the rest of Troma's films for that matter). Good, solid, campy low budget fun.

7/10
