This anonymously-directed exploitation film is a pretty obvious attempt to copy Russ Meyer's action/crime/sex formula without a 10th of Meyer's talent. Ridiculously butch lesbian Big Shim (Marni Castle) breaks three female friends out of jail and kidnaps Tony (Adam Clyde), the gigolo of a wealthy executive named Brenda McClain (Castle again). Shim and the gang tie Tony to a bed, and the usual softcore games ensue. Shim's girlfriend Baby (Eve Laurie) falls for the prisoner and tries to help him escape, but Shim shoots her and recaptures Tony. As punishment for making her kill Baby, Shim has the she-mob dress Tony in women's underwear, string him up, and whip him till he bleeds. Meanwhile, the CEO has hired lady-detective Sweety East (a take-off of the popular series Honey West) to track the she-mob to their hideout. Just as Big Shim gores the lingerie-clad Tony with her sharp, conical brassiere and is ready to castrate him, Sweety (Monique Duvall) breaks in and beats up the gang. Fans of silly '60s sleaze should get some campy fun from She-Mob, though many viewers will be appalled. Of course, those people are unlikely to watch the film in the first place. It's a bit faster-paced than most of its contemporaries and has some engagingly twitty moments.
