YMMV / Racket Girls

  • Crowning Music Of Funny: The "Ukranian" "national anthem" sung to the sudden outbreak of music at the end of the film:
  • Ethnic Scrappy: Personified by the male lead's weak willed Latin assisstant.
    • Mexican-born Rita Martinez lost her accent as a child - and had to fake one for the role.
  • Fetish Fuel: Women wrestling. This was a one-handed movie for many men in 1953. Russ Meyer hadn't made the scene yet.
  • Les Yay: Ruby touches Peaches a lot while she's changing clothes.
  • Padding: This is essentially an organized crime movie interspersed with mostly-irrelevant-to-the-plot scenes of women wrestling and exercising that go on forever.
  • What an Idiot: Scalli isn't the sharpest tool in the box. For example, he gets a hot tip about a fixed longshot, and he passes on it, mumbling some bullshit about its ironic nickname.
