I checked out Bikini Bloodbath last year under the assumption that that film would be right up my alley; I mean, it was a film that attempted to parody the slasher genre while giving the audience a nice mixture of gore, comedy, and of course, T&A, so what could possibly go wrong? Well, if you click that link, you'll see that while I didn't hate it, I wasn't exactly blown away with the final product either. It would seem that the filmmakers stumbled across that review at some point, because lo and behold, the sequel unexpectedly showed up in my mailbox last night. Now, I may be rather cocky from time to time, but I'm not so bold as to claim that they read my review of their first film and took notes while shooting the sequel. However, it really seems as though they did, as everything I griped about in the above review has been fixed in this entry. The result is a film that delivers everything that I expected from the first release: an intelligent parody of the genre with plenty of great laughs, inventive kills, and of course, the obligatory T&A.

The storyline attempts to mix together as many aspects of eighties cinema as possible, but with that said, this is not a film that you pick up for the plot. It's there and it moves everything along, but it won't win any awards for the strongest script from this (or any other) year. It revolves around a group of college gals - Jenny (Rachael Robbins), Sharon (Natalie Laspina), Scarlet (Margaret Rose Champagne), Lucy (Sheri Lynn), Lonnie (Natasha Nielsen), Sam (Dana Fay Ensalata), and Mercedes (Sarah Dauber) - who, under the guidance of their lesbian coach Mrs. Johnson (Debbie Rochon), decide to raise money for their school by setting up a bikini car wash. This provides us with the bikinis that the title promised, but the real story takes place later that night.

You see, the ladies decide to break out the ouija board during a slumber party, and you guessed it... they accidentally bring The Chef (Robert Cosgrove Jr.) back from the dead. They think nothing of it and do day two of the car wash the next afternoon, but when they and the college guys - Todd (Jack Flaherty), Gary (Matt Ford), Gil (Thomas Edward Seymour), Jay (Philip Guerette), and Ike (Russ Russo) - get together for a party at Mrs. Johnson's house, the cleaver-wielding Chef shows up and goes to work on raising his body count once again.

As you can probably tell just from reading the synopsis, this is a film that relies on the jokes, the abundance of female flesh, and the bloodshed (in that order) rather than a strong storyline or well-developed characters. Sometimes that works and sometimes it fails miserably, but here, it worked... it worked damned well. The comedic elements are downright hilarious, and while it's usually a given that any comedy will have a split of jokes that pull a laugh and jokes that flop, the vast majority of the material here hit the mark. Sure, there's a few easy jokes coming courtesy of the gay college guys and the airheaded bimbos, but there's also some very creative gags on display. For example, one scene finds Debbie Rochon taking on another lady in a knife-fight straight out of Michael Jackson's Beat It music video (complete with plenty of other references to his work). There's also a nod to You Got Served which comes out of nowhere, but I'll be damned if it didn't make me laugh until the tears were rolling. Suffice it to say that if you're a fan of the movies that came out of the eighties, parodies, or slashers in general, you'll almost certainly get a good amount of laughs while watching this flick.

The cast definitely helps in regards to the humor, as even though nobody found here is an award-winner, they all range from acceptable to above average. Matt Ford and Russ Russo in particular brought the laughs more times than I could keep count of, but just about everyone brought a little something to the table - even the ladies, who for the most part managed to keep up with their male costars in this release. Debbie Rochon is particularly great here, and unlike the last film, she actually gets a sizable role to work with. Watch for a nod to Jaws where Debbie compares battle scars with another lady and you'll see why she's time and time again called one of the best b-movie queens working today.

There's not much in the way of actual horror, but there is some decent gore and some inventive kill techniques, and again, it was all a huge step up from the previous film. The makeup effects on The Chef were nice, the body count was sufficient, and even though a few of the kills were pretty lackluster, there were a few that were shockingly good (the "nipple to the forehead" has to be seen to be believed). Keep in mind that the film is more of a comedy than a horror so expecting a slasher epic or gallons of blood would be silly, but what is there works.

It's certainly not high art, but Bikini Bloodbath Car Wash is the perfect movie for those nights when all you want to do is laugh and see some titties. A Citizen Kane for the new generation? Hardly, but to be fair, Citizen Kane didn't deliver this many laughs and it certainly didn't show this much skin. 8/10.

It was better than the first, but it still sucked. Like the review mentioned, it relies mostly on the comedy, except all the gags are painfully unfunny. In fact, I'm fairly certain I didn't even chuckle so much as once. While the T&A is certainly appreciated, it sure as hell doesn't save this miserable waste of time. 1/10, and yes, that point is for the skin.

If you didn't chuckle at the nod to Michael Jackson, then you have no soul.

Hmm, I don't remember any pedophile gags in there. Seriously though, that knife fight scene was just stupid. So was that break dancing scene you loved so much. Both times I literally sighed and checked the remaining time.
