Address Comments To:
BANDITS takes a strong romantic worldview toward its female rebels, much in the same way that THELMA AND LOUISE did. In fact, the movie could well have been subtitled THELMA AND LOUISE HAVE A HARD DAY'S NIGHT WITH THE BEATLES. BANDITS also contains strong politically correct elements regarding all forms of authority, which are viewed as almost totally corrupt. It also has plenty of foul language and some explicit sexual content and nudity. Basically, the movie is a leftover cry of rebellion from the 1960s, without the entertainment value.
But, boy can these ladies sing and play! Their songs are far less objectionable than the rest of the movie. Buy the album if you want, therefore, but avoid the movie.
