Movie Info

Stuntwomen Jeannie Epper and Zoe Bell are experts at taking punches, swinging swords and being blown to bits. Epper first gained respect as Lynda Carter's stuntwoman on TV's "Wonder Woman," while Bell had a long run as Lucy Lawless' double on the series "Xena: Warrior Princess." But, in a primarily male profession, the women still have to struggle against sexism to find jobs. This documentary chronicles their uphill battle in Hollywood and their enduring friendship throughout it all.

Audience Reviews for Double Dare

  • Jun 21, 2011
    "Double Dare" is a fun and interesting documentary about stuntwomen who rely on a combination of faith and fearlessness to survive in a field that has long been dominated by men. There is footage comparing stunt work to the finished product which helps illuminate the value of their work. My only major complaint is that there is not a more detailed history of stuntwomen in the documentary. "Double Dare" focuses on two stuntwomen from two different generations, Jeannie Epper and Zoe Bell, who are both in the process of looking for work in the documentary. Mostly known for doubling for Lynda Carter on "Wonder Woman," Epper comes from a family of stuntpeople(Steven Spielberg testifies to the vast amounts of her family working in the fight scene in "1941") and her daughter is also in the business. Even though she is nearing 60, Epper is nowhere near ready to retire, stays in shape, takes time out to donate a kidney and is even considering liposuction to look younger. Quentin Tarantino to his everloving credit is looking for toughness in casting for "Kill Bill" and for good reason. One of the stuntwomen he is considering is Zoe Bell who up to this point is mostly known for her stuntwork on "Xena: Warrior Princess" which had just gone off the air. Considering her next job, like some of her fellow New Zealanders in show business, she is daunted by the prospect of moving away from home to look for work in Hollywood. The irony is that once satisfied to work behind the scenes, since the documentary was released, she has started to develop a career as an actress.
