This enjoyably goofy'n'duffy piece of 70's drive-in fluff centers on a six woman outlaw gang who prey on hapless backwoods motorists. The gals are owned and trained by the amiable, scruffy, pleasantly mellow Manson-like Benson (shaggy hairball Norman Klar), a charismatically breezy anti-establishment type who wants to raise enough money to purchase a bus so he and his female family can go to California. Naive, pregnant teen runaway Maggie (the lovely, busty, lusty blonde fox Misty Rowe, who was a regular on "Hee Haw" and played Marilyn Monroe in Larry Buchanan's tawdry biopic "Goodbye Norma Jean") joins the loose, fun-loving, law-breaking bunch and winds up fighting with possessive, rabidly envious and clinging iceberg bitch Diana (statuesque brunette Linda Avery) over who's got exclusive dibs on Benson.

That's about it for the admittedly flimsy story and frankly who cares about some fancy-schmancy plot? In its place there's sunny cinematography, lots of roadside robberies, a generous sprinkling of gratuitous nudity, sexy chicks in skimpy apparel (Rowe in particular looks mighty enticing in a skimpy mini-dress), the inevitable skinny-dipping scene, a rowdy pot party, catchy folk-country songs grooving away on the soundtrack, some trashy melodrama (Maggie gets raped by a sleazy jerk and has a miscarriage), charmingly dated hippie slang ("Far out!"), a couple of catfights, a playfully amoral tone, and absolutely no pretense to get in the way of the giddy tongue-in-cheek silliness. Sure, it's dumb, pointless and meandering, which basically means that it's a sweetly stupid grindhouse relic from the halcyon heyday of exploitation cinema and hence a most entertaining source of undemanding no-brainer fun.
