Directed by Al Adamson, Mean Mother follows a pair U.S. soldiers as they attempt to avoid serving in Vietnam. Beauregard (Clifton Brown) and Joe (Dennis Safren) part ways once they get to Europe, only to be reunited in Rome after being pursued by local mobsters. Eventually they head off to Canada, but their lives still seem to be in only slightly less danger than they would have been had going AWOL not been an option. The film also features Luciana Paluzzi, Lang Jeffries, and Tracy King.
