Assault of the Killer Bimbos is a 1988 American comedy film starring Elizabeth Kaitan, Christina Whitaker.[1]

Plot[edit]

Two go-go dancers, Lulu (Elizabeth Kaitan) and Peaches (Christina Whitaker), are framed for the murder of their employer by the real killer, sleazy gangster Vinnie (Mike Muscat). Picking up waitress Darlene (Tammie Souza) along the way, the three are involved in wild car chases with cops as they head south to cross the border into Mexico, where they unexpectedly encounter Vinnie in a fleabag Mexican motel.

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

Roger Ebert of Chicago Sun-Times offered a mixed review of the film, not praising it while neither condemning it. He offered that the title accurately described the movie and wrote that it was "one of those movies where the lights are on but nobody's at home. It is the most simpleminded movie in many a moon, a vacant and brainless exercise in dreck, and I almost enjoyed myself sometimes, sort of. The movie is so cheerfully dim-witted and the characters are so enthusiastically sleazoid that the film takes on a kind of awful charm."[2] Don Kaye of Rovi wrote that the film was "a dumb-but-hip instant cult favorite that knows - and revels in - its limitations."[3]

Production[edit]

Casting of the film was ongoing in May 1987 with Generic Films to begin shooting on June 5 as part of a four-picture contract with Empire Pictures.[4]
