The makers of this film, alumni of Creator/SamRaimi's ''[[Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys Hercules]]'' and ''[[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]]'' franchises, sat down one day, between projects, and tried to think: "how do we make a movie that people will watch with a limited budget and using only day shoots?" The answer, [[LowestCommonDenominator of course]], is to simply put sexy girls Hel, Trixie, and Camero in revealing outfits in the middle of the desert, then have them [[{{Catfight}} fight]], [[{{Fanservice}} flaunt]], and [[GirlsLove fornicate]] their way through a convoluted, {{Troperiffic}} plot.

Of particular note here is the involvement of {{Badass}} kiwi ActionGirl stuntwoman and fight choreographer Creator/ZoeBell. The producers again called in favors from their ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' days; she was Lucy Lawless's stunt double. Her influence and expertise is one of the things that elevates this movie from mere exploitation schlock to ''awesome'' exploitation schlock.

Added DiffLines:

* UnusualEuphemism: This movie used almost every slang term for sex and female genitalia in the English language, except for the non-offensive ones, and then made up some more just to avoid repetition.

* {{Fanservice}}: And how! Just as an example of the lengths they go to for this trope, at one point the three leads have a five minute water fight, ''in the middle of the desert'', [[SexySoakedShirt drenching all of them dressed]], while they're worried that someone might be coming after them.
