Terry Frick (Photographer): Yeah, but I'm about to quit. I think I'm going to quit.
Zoe Bell: Oh yeah? Why's that?
Terry Frick (Photographer): I can't, I've been living in London as well, I can't breathe, everybody knows me there, and I hate it.
Zoe Bell: Over here they know you? Or over there?
Terry Frick (Photographer): Over there, yeah I need to quit now before the momentum really starts going, and then it's like once you get the fame thing, you never own your life again.

Tough broads......
2 August 2005 | by BoggmanSee all my reviews

This is a pretty cool and interesting documentary if you understand the subject matter going into it.

The movie primarily takes a look at two Holllwood stunt woman: Jeannie Epper, who doubled for Lynda Carter during the Wonder Woman series run, has been working in the business for approx 30yrs and comes from a whole family of professional stunt men and women; and Zoe Bell, a New Zealand native & young up and comer who doubled for Xena during that shows six seasons who is now looking to make her mark here in L.A./Hollywood.

We get the background of each woman, a look at the difficulties that women face in the business, a lot of celebrity interviews, and some additional celebrity cameos that the filmmakers shot while making the film.

What I particularly enjoyed was the immediate bond between Epper and Bell. Epper seems to take Bell under her wing rather quickly by helping with valuable training and allowing her to stay at her home while she struggles to get work and make her own name in the stunt woman profession. It's a nice inside look that goes to show not everyone in "the business" is just out for themselves. Epper comes across with genuine eagerness, kindness, and integrity as she guides Bell through the Hollywood machine.

If the plot line so far interests you, or your a fan of shows like Wonder Woman and Xena, then this documentary should not disappoint.

Recommended.
