Taco Chick and Salsa Girl

Okay, let's start with some obvious faults. The film was done on zero budget. The actors aren't trained in stunt fighting or fight choreography.

Given those limitations, this was a wonderful film. They did just enough fight choreography that you could tell they knew what the scene would look like with professional stunt doubles, and the special effects were better than in many films with six-figure budgets. The story is pure camp, but the actors hammed it up only to just the right level.

Taco Chick and Salsa Girl are urban superheroes, fighting against injustice and intolerance, including their arch-nemesis Neato Nazi Barbie and her sidekick White Supremacist Ken.

I've seen a number of DVD collections of gay short films about coming out and coming of age; how about a gay short comedy collection? I think it's about time. That or maybe slap this short on as a DVD extra with a feature film like D.E.B.S.
