Pumping Iron II: The Women

  • Film

Time Out says

A drama doc on the run-up and final for the 1983 Caesar's Cup in Las Vegas which proves even more engaging than Pumping Iron. The line-up of well-oiled beauties includes one controversial Australian, Bev Francis, who powerlifts 500 pounds for breakfast, and whose musculature defies rational analysis. The crux of the tournament then comes down to whether the judges, blind fools to a man, will accept something so obviously superior or opt for the safety of a body more 'traditionally feminine' such as gorgeous pouting Rachel McLish, who is discovered to have illegal padding in her unmuscled bits, oh the shame of it all. Ironically, the winner turns out to be the one with the firmest grasp of the political undercurrents. Huge fun. CPea.
