Directed By one Will Zens , (who also did 1964's THE STARFIGHTERS,
possibly the most boring movie ever featured on MST3K) TRUCKERS
WOMAN (1975) may be the least southern Trucker movie ever.
Sure, there's a little country music thrown in on the soundtrack,
but the truckers of this film are witty, urbane, and very northern.
How many trucker movies have you seen where the trucker's drinking
hole requires a dinner jacket to get in and has a fairly extensive
wine rack? How many trucker movies have you seen with no usage
of a CB radio? How many trucker movies have you seen where the
truckers DON'T GO ANYWHERE? Well, I've seen one at least.
The plot of this thing is a typical "Corrupt boss killed my
daddy so I'm gonna clean up this company" deal so there's not
much there to talk about. The Truckers woman of the title gets
nude a couple of times to wake up the audience but she really
doesn't contribute much either. Veteran funnyman Doodles Weaver
is the comedy sidekick and apparently had an acting exercise that
involved letting a cat shit in his mouth before he delivered his
lines. The guy who played the retarded Dr. Giggles on L.A.
LAW is a villain but he doesn't do all that much either. Nah,
the only memorable part of TRUCKERS WOMAN is it's hero,
Mike Kelly (TM) as played by (get this) JIM BROADWAY.
Ole Jim gives quite a performance here and really makes Mike
Kelly (TM) come to life. Mike Kelly (TM): our short, tubby, colorless,
pale, hairless, flaccid, uncoordinated, uninteresting, totally
unqualified hero. Mike Kelly(TM), who we're supposed to believe
is a tough guy. Mike Kelly(TM), who we're supposed to believe
is a irresistible sex machine. Mike Kelly(TM), so wooden you could
hollow him out and use him for a canoe. Mike Kelly(TM), not worth
a pimple on Ross Hagen's ass. Mike Fuckin' Kelly(TM). BAH!
That's all the review you're getting out of me!
