They came. They Shopped. They saved the world!
Two girls from the Valley wake up to find that a passing comet has eradicated their world and left behind a mysterious red-dust and a pack of cannibal mutants. With the help of a friendly truck driver, the girls save the earth from a villainous "think tank," karate chop their way through flesh-eating zombies, and, of course, find time to go to the mall.

The best dialogue, plot progression and creativity come in the first thirty minutes. It gets progressively more boring at everything as it unfolds. I was half watching by the end. Notice all the genre descriptions for the movie? That because it's a genre mash up that doesn't work. If it stuck with one idea it probably wouldn't have been any better anyway. I didn't want brilliant acting or even a good plot but to be entertained and it failed. It couldn't even pad out the boredom with tacky zombies and random tits. Liked more than it should be just because it's very stylistically 80s.
