Not much acting here.
Kyle Ray
I found her character intriguing and her acting, although a little underdeveloped, still the reason that this film had a cohesive continuity.
Joe C. McPherson
Her treatment by the bands is misogynistic and childish, but not to worry.

During the revolutionary years of 60s, 70s and 80s thousands of B Movies have been made all over the world , specially Europe and United States. The contents of these movies are exciting, hot, funny, scary and so on with not much of censorship and conservatism for sex and violence which make them an enjoyable experience to watch for those who are interested in this kind of oldies.
This movie did not have enough elements of excitement for me , so I gave it only two stars.

I wouldn't go out of my way to watch this movie, but as a sort of rough period piece (as viewed today...it was released in 1970, so obviously wasn't intended as such :) ) that includes a fair amount of original music, it has enough to hold a person's interest if they have any fondness of or nostalgia for the 60's music scene but don't mind a bit of honesty in their revisiting of the time.

Sally starts out at a local gig with some friends, but stows away in the band's van and is discovered only as they try to puzzle their way out of town. She tags along to the next show, where she finds a new band to follow. She sticks with them, until they get bored and hand her over to yet another band. This time her move is made by her being handed through the windows of the two bands' vans while they are still speeding down a highway.

Her treatment by the bands is misogynistic and childish, but not to worry. The group that sent her packing while still on the highway pays the ultimate price in the ensuing crash, moments after she's safely aboard the other's van.

The first half of the movie is especially sparse. Brief vignettes tied together by longer musical performances account for what little plot exists. The second half digs a little deeper, but in the end amounts to little more than Sally being sequestered long enough for the whole highway crash situation to blow over. During that time, she meets the one "deep soul" character in the story (Wesley), but after yet another unwanted advance, this time from the most recent band's manager, finally heads home.

I love films that have a good story, most often, but sometimes I will watch a film simply because I want to see what people were wearing during a particular time period. This film falls into the latter category. It has a great 60s/70s look.

This movie 'Groupie Girl' provides great insight into the true life of a hippie. It showcases the progressive maturity of a naive young woman who enters the the lifestyle and the decisions she makes that shapes her human character. In a sense this movie has a sentiment for every viewer, which is one of learning from decisions made as a young person. The acting isn't great, but it is the plot that drew me into the film. The characters are developed enough for the viewing audience to identify with the ones necessary to understand the point of the film, which is progressive maturity at a Tim that is confusing for teens as they enter adulthood. This is a b-movie with an intentional underlined plot and has a depth that is memorable-not Oscar material-but helps every person to identify with the folly and growth of the human spirit. Groupie Girl is the right movie for such an audience. That's why it gets four stars. However, the only disappointment is the brevity of the career of Esme Johns. I found her character intriguing and her acting, although a little underdeveloped, still the reason that this film had a cohesive continuity. Check out Groupie Girl for any b-movie con issuer.
