Storyline

This film is a satire of the women's liberation movement, staring a trio of female impersonators. Candy is an aloof heiress caught in an unhappy relationship with her brother. Jackie is a virginal intellectual who believes women are oppressed in contemporary American society. And Holly is a nymphomaniac who has come to loathe men, despite her attraction to them. Together, they join a militant feminist group, P.I.G. (Politically Involved Girls), but their newfound liberation doesn't make them any happier. Written by Anonymous

Warhol had his 15 minutes, and not one minute more.
29 April 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

4/27/18. I watched this because it was an Andy Warhol movie. Sadly, the satire is lost on me. It's more pxxx (that rhymes with corn), and it's not even art house material at that. When this came out, 47 years ago, it was a movie of drag queens giving voice to women's liberation that was just starting up, pointing out the inconsistencies of the roles women were trying to define during the years of social change. So, the sexual exploitation is supposedly not as offensive because the women were men in drag. In the "metoo" "timesup" era the satire is pretty trite and offensive on many levels. In retrospect, Warhol had his 15 minutes, and not one minute more.
