Blondes Have More Guns, a 1996 Troma Entertainment production, is a campy comedic parody of the crime thriller genre. Some of the period's best known films are lampooned as Detective Harry Bates (Michael McGaham) works against the clock to crack a string of chainsaw murders with the help of his partner Dick Smoker (Richard Neil). When Harry finds a wedding invitation on the body of a victim, it puts him on the trail of prime suspect and bride Montana Beaver-Shotz (Elizabeth Key) and her mysterious relative Dakota Beaver (Gloria Lusiak). It will be up to Dick to solve the case when Harry becomes too close to both women. High melodrama ensues as plot twists unfold and secret identities are revealed. Plenty of puns, slapstick gags, and innuendo keep this fast paced comedy moving as it pokes fun at such crime thrillers as Basic Instinct, The Crying Game, and Silence of the Lambs.
