What's the point of even complaining about this? Simply this.
I'm tired of low-budget filmmakers putting in the hours, days, months involved in realizing even the most lo-fi vision and turning out crap like this. A movie that tries to wear camp like a shield, substituting a super-abundance of witlessness and trying to pass it off as wit, winking hard at the audience and insisting that it's not to be taken seriously, and trying so hard to be over-the-top that it winds up being merely numbing and tedious.
It's not "so bad it's good", it's just bad, and shame on you for trying to sneak it through.
That said, if you're looking for a movie with sexy women involved in a crime narrative that offers plenty of cat-fights and flashy imagery, and you can deal with having your intelligence insulted, this one's for you. But FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! (a film this movie so badly wants to be compared to) is better plotted, has more likable characters, and is a great deal sexier.
