Saw it yesterday, it was off the chain! This is pure Robert Rodriguez at his best. We dug it, especially when Danny Trejo says (deadpan) to Alba "Machete don't text"! Yup, over the top violence, nudity, mean azz characters, but a more interesting plot that I expected.

He escapes and looks for his baby sister Laurie Stroude. He soon tracks her down along with her very naughty friends. She baby sits and then he stats his knife-weilding ways. Laurie tries to escape
Print shirts with polyester suits... bad hair... jazz flute... misogyny. Plenty of reasons to dislike the 1970s, and a lot of reasons to enjoy the spoofs in this extremely light comedy. Christina Applegate is suprisingly fun to watch as the brave anchorwoman who battles the male-dominated newsroom in her climb up the career ladder.
