“This movie is as authentic as it gets, as far as 70s B movies go. Itu0026#39;s got plenty of gratuitous nudity, violence, tacky locales, slimy bad guys, and ubiquitous vulgarity. In other words, everything that makes these sorts of movies such a guilty pleasure.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe setting for this film, takes place in a dusty, out-of-the way town in New Mexico. A woman named Anna, runs a truck stop/diner/motel there. Itu0026#39;s just a front though, for Annau0026#39;s smuggling operation. With the help of her bodacious daughter Rose (played by Claudia Jennings), Anna and her henchmen waylay truckers on the road, steal their trucks, and then repaint them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnna does okay, running her smuggling ring for a while. But then some east coast mafia types, decide that they want to take over Annau0026#39;s territory. The head mobster takes an interest in Rose, and tries to seduce her away from working with Anna. Rose is tempted by the city-slicker mobster, and his offer of a lucrative partnership with her.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRose tries to undermine Anna and rebels against her, as Rose gets in deeper and deeper with her mobster beau. Itu0026#39;s up to Anna and her partners, to try and turn Rose back to Annau0026#39;s side, while fighting to keep the mobsters from taking over her smuggling ring.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eClaudia is in a supporting role as Annau0026#39;s daughter Rose. Itu0026#39;s not her best movie. But Claudia sure has the physique and the fiery charisma, to portray the sexy, renegade Rose. Only Lieux Dressler as Anna, gives as compelling a performance as Claudia does. The rest of the cast is basically forgettable.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTruck Stop Women is tacky, campy, 70s B movie fun. Itu0026#39;s a real loose-cannon, of a 70s low-budget film. Fans of Claudia Jennings, wonu0026#39;t be disappointed.”
