BONNIE'S KIDS (1973)
A lot of movies have a great last 15 minutes. This one here is the complete opposite. It starts out with a bunch of pervy/molesty, small town hillbilly types who seem to spend all their free time ogling and making sleazy passes at the two main title characters. Even the girls step-dad can't keep his greasy paws off the younger of the two which leads to a shotgun blasting bit of revenge. Unfortunately this all happens in the opening scenes and then the rest of the movie concerns a package of money and a whole bunch of plot twists and turns that I didn't really feel helped move things along in a very thrilling manner. The few high spots, here and there, didn't really do it for me. Tiffany Bolling, as the older sister, is great to see in anything but I found her performance in, the over-all far superior, THE CANDY SNATCHERS way more entertaining.
