Product Description

Big Bad Mama / Big Bad Mama II (Roger Corman's Cult Classics)

Amazon.ca

Angie Dickinson stars as a bank-robbing matriarch in this 1974 Roger Corman production, often described as a knock-off of Bonnie and Clyde. (As if that makes any difference regarding the worth of the film--which is pretty good.) Set in Great Depression-era Texas, the story finds Dickinson's desirable and poor character driven to crime, along with her two daughters (Susan Sennett, Robbie Lee), all of whom use sex to distract or drive men into culpability. The film, directed by Steve Carver, is pure Corman formula: fast-moving, violent, gritty, adorned with nudity, and yet solidly true to its own sense of high drama and texture. Veteran Angie Dickinson brings solid acting chops (and a great bod on display) to the enterprise--and speaking of Enterprise, William Shatner is quite memorable (as is Tom Skerritt) as one of the gentlemen who fall under the antiheroine's sway. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This film is a typical Roger Corman extravaganza. I was recently amazed to see it listed on the Turner Classic Movies channel program (admittedly the TCM "Underground") and watched it out of interest to see how it had acquired its Classic label - to my astonishment I very quickly found out that this was well justified. Big Bad Mama is pure mindless fun for adults as the hardpressed depression era Mother struggles to raise her daughters in a way which will enable them to have a better lifestyle; unfortunately the rather uninhibited use of firearms by Mother's party prevents it from being quite ideal entertainment for young viewers.

The ambiguous ending to Big Bad Mama 1 was quite clever. Did Roger Corman really appreciate that a sequel might be called for one day? It took a very long time to come and I applaud Angie Dickinson for still being game to undertake her part. But I suspect that she got a great deal of fun out of making these films - something that always rubs off on the ultimate vewer.
Thank you Angie!

Yes, this movie is cheap, exploitative campy trash, with a forgettable nonsensical comedy/ violence plot and poor acting by almost every actor/ actress in the movie,
BUT,
the superb performance and presence of Angie Dickenson make this a must-see movie!
Angie was 43 when the movie was made, and the actress playing her "teenage" daughter Billy Jean was 29! I can't find an age for the actress playing Polly, even on IMDB.

I watched this movie in the seventies when it came out and it seemed very, very racy. Now its pretty calm stuff with no more nudity than any contemorary flick. Still good, especially if you are an Angie Dickinson fan. The young girls add some heat but the nudity is brief.
