Storyline

April, Courtney and Monica are three beautiful, intelligent and tough college freshmen. They are finishing their first semester at Los Lomas Malas community college, the armpit of community college's. They must do well on finals to gain entrance to an Ivy League University, cheer at the big game and rescue their Sensei, who has been kidnapped by the mob, all by midnight so they can compete in the all-city strip off with the hopes of winning college money. All the while, dodging nosy cops, keeping their parents at bay, dealing with a perverted coach and smiling, talking or fighting their way through a slew of odd characters. Written by David Presley

Quotes

Victor Lazzaro: Do you even understand the importance of this club?
Hiroshi: It makes a GOOD profit.
Victor Lazzaro: No! It's family. My father opened this club, and I ran it until my unfortunate incarceration, but now that I'm out, I'm taking back what's rightfully mine.
Hiroshi: It's not yours to take back.
Victor Lazzaro: [Lazzaro hits Hiroshi] What do you know, huh? Obviously you've never run a crime family!

Cute
10 August 2008 | by delibebekSee all my reviews

Cute. The girls are cute. The fight scenes are cute. The red VW Beetle is cute. Etc.

These girls fight for justice, righting wrongs, selling Girl Scout cookies - that is, when they aren't stealing swords in the middle of the night, cheering at their junior college, and dancing at a strip club, where they never actually strip.

It's funny how a B-movie like this contains less action than it would if it were an A-movie. There is actually more acting in this movie than I expected, given all the background elements thrown in at random.

I think this movie was more fun to make than it is to watch, but it was fun for at least one viewing.
