Overview

Michael A. Simpson's moronic but oddly prudish T&A comedy gets off to a terrible start and only gets worse from there. Tracy Griffith (half-sister to Melanie) stars as Samantha, a pretty redhead who runs a gas station. Her friend Auggie (co-writer Clark Brandon, who later used Griffith in his stultifying eco-kill horror movie Skeeter) and his pal Drew (Randal Patrick) were thrown out of college for a money-making scam, and their ingenuity comes in handy when greedy fast food mogul Wrangler Bob (Jim Varney in a rare non-Ernest role) attempts to take over the station and turn it into a hamburger joint. From there on in, the film is another dumb "let's save the ____" comedy, with smarmy gags like an aphrodisiac secret sauce and the obligatory wet t-shirts to keep viewers awake. Unfortunately, this PG-13 snoozer never really understands or exploits the two elements which make these films successful in the first place: raunch and bare breasts -- neither of which get enough screen time. It's overly tame and attempts to meld the disparate elements of kiddie-comedy innocence and drive-in bawdiness, but fails on both counts. By attempting to capture the best of both worlds, the filmmakers have ended up with a cipher unlikely to satisfy anyone. It's particularly annoying since Simpson knows how to make good raunchy trash. His Sleepaway Camp 3 (also featuring Pamela Springsteen and Michael J. Pollard from this film) was one of the rare truly enjoyable horror sequels, and certainly displayed none of the self-defeating timidity shown here. At least the cast, which also includes Kevin McCarthy, Traci Lords, and Bruce Evers (as Agent Dikworth), is fun to watch. The story certainly isn't.
