"Thanks for killing my mom, man..."
28 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a campy little movie that looks like a person afflicted with Parkinson's disease shot most of it; a corny punk trash flick that follows the rise to fame and fortune of the all-girl teen band the Lovedolls. Chock full of SHOCKING and OUTRAGEOUS behavior, hilariously bad acting, and a pretty good 80's punk soundtrack.

There are many priceless bits that make this film a lot of fun for anyone who's a fan of cheesy flicks. Highly recommended for lovers of bad movies!
