Critic Reviews for Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls Like Mom (Pepi, Luci, Bom y otras chicas del montón)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Most notable for its bathroom jokes, humorous rape scenes and abysmal home-movie cinematography, [the film is a] reputation-dimming mess.

New York Times
Top Critic

A series of screen provocations, including frank and degrading sexual acts, it's designed primarily to jolt the viewer.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Pedro Almodovar showed not a whisker of promise in his amateurish directorial debut, a smutty sexual sideshow most safely viewed in a full body condom.

Washington Post
Top Critic

This feature debut from Spain's enfant terrible is amateurish in both the positive and negative senses of the term, but it already shows his penchant for shock and provocation

Audience Reviews for Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls Like Mom (Pepi, Luci, Bom y otras chicas del montón)

Almodovar began his career with this gritty tale of liberated women, and never looked back...

The earliest of Almodovars finds the director trying to deal with his then lack of budget and craftsmanship, but it also includes some incredibly wicked and witty ideas which would later become his trademarks. In this case one can see these ideas scattered in a film which lacks an axis. Nevertheless, the seeds are planted, though one might neeed a magnifying glass to see them.
