Cheerleaders Wild Weekend aka The Great American Girl Robbery from 1979
is just another example of sexploitation from the decade of the '70's, but
with one exception, this one has Kristine DeBell who was in the October
1976 edition of Playboy magazine's baseball card themed pictorial
"Straighten Your Bats." While riding her Playboy exposure, so to
speak, she exposed more in the 1976 Alice In Wonderland: An X-Rated
Musical Fantasy, which is also worth your time, but back to the cheerleaders.
The bus-load of cheerleaders are kidnapped, but never in any real danger,
but they do end up having a wild time and to tell you more would spoil your
fun. Like I said in my Hell Night review, the reason I got that movie was
because Linda Blair was in it and I got this one because Kristine DeBell
was in it. It is fun and has plenty of flesh, but it is in no way a
horror film. Fans of Kristine should have this in your film library.
1976 and 1977 were a bit of a slow start for her, but she took off in
1978 and worked mostly in TV up to 1986, then a break for some reason and
came back in 1990. Then she really took a break of about 22 years and now
she is back once again. Most of current work is rather tame, but still
a favorite of mine. I only wish her career path had been more along
the lines of Traci Lords, after she left porn, who did have some good
movies and some B type movies, but at least she stayed busy and in front
of the camera. If you are a fan of the '70's movies and want a
not too serious movie for a Saturday night, give this one a look, if you
can find it. If Rooster-Spurs of Death ever makes it to DVD, grap that one as
well, as Kristine is in that one as well.
