"Double Dare" kicks booty!
2 June 2005 | by tarotationSee all my reviews

This movie completely blew me away--and I'm not easily impressed. It is so much fun and so joyful and inspiring, especially to women. I'd highly recommend it to anyone. I saw it at the Independent Fim Festival of Boston in 2004 and it was such a thrill to see it with a sold-out crowd and have the crowd be so deeply into it the whole way through. It's impossible not to fall in love with Zoe Bell, the younger of the two stunt women featured--but on seeing it for a second time I was even more impressed with Jeannie Epper, the 64-year- old grandma who is still doing stunts and whose kids and grandkids are carrying on the tradition. Also for Tarantino and Xena fans the scenes involving the Xena shoots and the Kill Bill auditions are delightful. And I was moved by the joy and passion these two women--and Amanda, the director--bring to their work. Rock on!
