Holy shit! This outrageous farce, directed by longtime character actor James Hong, is like a wholly American distillation of late-period Luis Bunuel.

Good taste is roughly elbowed aside and black-humored perversity reigns inside as we are introduced to lovely young Carol (Kristen Baker), a police academy cadet who has family problems. Her gross father is always on the make for her, her mother drinks like a sailor on a three day shore leave, and her model-airplane obsessed retarded brother wants to marry her.

Fortunately she has her police work, which largely consists of dressing like a hooker and being groped by perps, that is when she's not being groped by the other cops.

Her problems aren't confined to home and work though, even when she tries to spend a little quiet time with her hot-rodding boyfriend, she's dragged from the car by a gang of amorous 8 year olds (while the theme from THE PEOPLE'S COURT blasts on the soundtrack).

When she seeks religious counsel, the family priest tells her he's gay, and that "all Hitler needed was a hug", which only serves to confuse her. But the confusion is just beginning as things really get strange. (Lars)
