The Rebellious Seventies Ride Again!

Perhaps there is too much casual rebelliousness and not enough (in fact hardly any) getting down to serious work, but this colorized view of teenage school kids in the seventies certainly has plenty of action - particularly what we might call thoughtless actions - which the script always excuses, hardly ever justifies and never condemns. Although approaching adulthood, the rebellious teenage school kids are always in the right, no matter who they ridicule, steal from, abuse or endanger. This said, the movie is compellingly acted by every one of its large cast of players, and it is directed not only with a great deal of competence, but a certain amount of style. The excellent print I watched was on a DVD in Mill Creek's "Drive-In Cult Classics Collection".

A Time Capsule for the 1970's

This movie doesn't have much of a plot at all, but maybe only "The Van" is more of a time capsule for the 1970's teenager. It makes me laugh how today's so-called critics will praise a movie like "Dazed and Confused" as a masterpiece and laugh at "The Pom Pom Girls" and consider it cheesy and dated. "Dazed and Confused" (while I love that film) is basically a bigger budget remake of "The Pom Pom Girls". The vibe and lack of plot of the two movies are very similar. If you enjoy "Dazed and Confused" you will surely love "The Pom Pom Girls". And don't be misled by the title...there's very little to do with Pom Pom Girls here unfortunately. It's actually more about guys. Overall this is a fun movie that is very much of its time and portrays what it was really like to be a teenager in the carefree crazy 1970's.

Time waster

THE POM POM GIRLS is your typical high school sex comedy: a group of young, sex-mad students are after various girls on the cheerleading team, while at the same time determined to have a good time. Their hijinks include stealing public vehicles and generally causing a nuisance, much to the consternation of the authorities.

There's little to distinguish this from the usual Crown International Pictures fare: there's the requisite nudity, limited to a couple of exploitational stripping/dressing sequences; the lowbrow humour; the occasional familiar face (this time around it's Robert Carradine) to make it feel like a 'proper' film. But at the same time, it has the usual problems of a Crown picture, namely poor scripting, an almost entire absence of funny jokes, poor acting, and a general forgettable atmosphere. It's not one to waste your time with - unless you were there and you're looking for a nostalgia kick.
