Response to Peary’s Review:
Peary warns us in the first line of his review that “your reputation’s on the line if you admit to having seen a film with such a title” as this. Yet The Yum Yum Girls is actually a rather tame little “R-rated exploitation film”, with a fair amount of humor (especially as “an array of funny actresses [are seen] auditioning or making stupid commercials”) and a surprisingly sympathetic heroine. As Peary points out, while it’s “nothing special”, it could definitely “have been much worse.”

Redeeming Qualities and Moments:

  • Amusing backstage banter and comedic auditions
