Mouse (adorable Chris Jordan) and Bird (the gorgeous Sandra Peabody of "The Last House on the Left" fame) are a couple of sassy and sexy hitchhikers who embark on a cross country road trip in search of freedom, excitement, and independence. The lovely ladies use their nubile bodies as currency and run across a diverse array of libidinous folks on their journey. Director Gerrie Sedley and writer Rod Whipple astutely nail the aimless wandering spirit of the laid-back early 70's while relating the rambling episodic narrative at a leisurely pace. Of course, they also deliver plenty of tasty female nudity and several sizzling soft-core sex scenes (an uninhibited anything-goes orgy at a wild swingin' party rates as the definite erotic highlight). Moreover, this movie boasts a hilariously breezy sense of distinctly 70's irreverent humor, with loads of sharp sarcastic dialogue (favorite line: "If you want bread, go *beep* a baker!") and inspired oddball moments that include our saucy protagonists dancing topless at a diner for food and a surreal backwoods encounter with a vicious escaped rapist (an amusing performance by Ric Mancini). Jordan and Peabody make for attractive and appealing leads; their nice natural chemistry keeps the picture buzzing throughout. Popping up in nifty supporting parts are the cute Nikki Lynn as mopey virginal innocent Jennie, Claire Wilbur as wealthy predatory lesbian Toni Blake, Peter Carew as jolly traveling salesman Dick Daggart, Kevin Andre as flaky car dealer Farquart, and Ivan Smith as a goofy local yokel cop. Gabriel Merchant's bright cinematography gives the film a pleasing sunny look. The groovy diggin' score offers an eclectic mix of tuneful folk, jaunty ragtime, and get-down funky rock. Good trashy fun.
