Assault of the Killer Bimbos is the kind of engagingly dumb, slyly hip pic that is tailor-made for cult enjoyment. First-timer Anita Rosenberg has fashioned an under-$1 million pic [from a story by her, Patti Astor and Ted Nicolaou] that dips and sways with its own kind of bimbotic integrity.

Chief bimbos are played by Christina Whitaker and Elizabeth Kaitan as go-go dancers in a dead-end nightclub who are mistakenly taken for murderers after their boss gets bumped off by hoods. On the 1am to Mexico, they pick up a willing hostage – truckstop waitress Tammara Souza – and three cartoonish surf bums played by Jamie Bozian and moviebiz brats Nick Cassavetes and Griffin O’Neal.

Road adventures, which include a high-speed chase on the desert highway complete with a flying police car stunt, end in a low-rent Tijuana motel. Head bimbo Whitaker has the kind of unshakeable cool that makes her look like she’s cruising Ocean Avenue even while driving a getaway car out of a truckstop.
