Audience Reviews for The Ambushers


So incredibly silly and goofy that you would have to be a terminal grouch not to smile at this nonsense. Get this: the plot's actually about UFOs that can only be piloted by women (don't ask) who, naturally, are all hot chicks, and someone they go missing or something and Matt Helm is enlisted to save the day. It's totally ridiculous, of course, but charming in an antiquated way. The theme song is about how women will "ambush" men into marriage, so fellas beware! -- I kid you not -- and the credit sequences shows girls in bikinis jumping out from behind trees in the hopes of catching a husband. See? How can you not smile at that! C'mon, it's the 60s and times are groovy ... from what I've read. Only the extreme 60s spy flick fans should be watching this one. Everyone else: Nothing to see here.
