everyone misses the point of this film and what it wants to convey- while fame and consumer culture of pop icons are strong themes, Nancy Dowd, who was part of the punk rock scene, wanted to give women a voice in a subculture that is ultimately dominated by men. Production values and formal, stylistic elements aside, i like this film a lot and think of it as an important underground cult classic
Although I feel like I should love this movie because it's about a super rad riot grrrl punk band whose message is "We don't put out!", the movie was just really terrible. Yeah the girls looked awesome and the entire message of the movie might have been strong but the movie was such a bore.
