Here we have the lone starring vehicle for vocal trio Hot (Gwen Owens, Cathy Carson and Juanita Curiel). The ladies of the group meet in prison and discover a shared musical talent they aim to pursue after exiting the big house. The post-jailhouse story is an unwieldy melding of "rise to the top" music industry journey and engine revving "chase-sploitation" flick. The jokes remain resolutely low-brow while the cast tries to keep up with the constant schizophrenic tonal shifts. The plot involves the band running afoul of a judge, sheriff and parole officer in the town of Pitts, where their performing career begins. Our heroines pull pranks, perform songs and race up and down the highways of the heartless American desert.
The film is more entertaining than one might expect and the members of Hot seize their moment in the spotlight with delight. They have an easy charm and cozy familiarity with one another that makes it up onto the screen. The car stunts are more than competent for the budget class the film was made within although it never gets quite as reckless as most of the better known gearhead movies of the period. It is forgiveable though because the creative forces behind the scenes have the good sense to keep things moving quickly and cut to a rousing music number if things start to stall out. No matter how sloppy or inconsistent things get you are never bored and that is more than one can hope for with most large-scale Hollywood product.
