The Plot: 

If you want to see hot chicks in action...rent a porno. Sure, this has hot chicks, but even if they were sleeping with each other, the movie wouldn't be worth it.

This movie has 3 openings; two of witch have nothing to do with the plot. First, we find out how girls join Batwoman and her synthetic Vampires by drinking...YOGURT! It gets worse.

The second is a mugging gone wrong and the Batgirls who witnessed him can do only what Batgirls can do...CALL BATWOMAN! That's it. Nothing else. It gets worse.

The third opening, and the one that HAS something to do with the movie are all the Batgirls at a dance club. One of them is given a drugged drink by Tiger and Bruno while the other Batgirls just dance and dance for two more minutes. And yes, it gets worse.

Meanwhile, outside of Batwoman's house, we see...An UNEMPLOYED LUCHADOR! Seriously, we see Rat Fink peeping in to Batwoman's living room seeing her getting a call about the kidnapped girl.

The girl is taken to Professor Neon and his sidekick with the "Hilarity of Drop Dead Fred" as Mike said in the MST3K ep: Hethcliff. We then find out that they work for Rat Fink who needs Batwoman for his DIABOLICAL SCHEME! Note that I'm being sarcastic about that one.

After a whole day (Or what felt like a lifetime), the girls and Batwoman form a plan to get their member back, when Rat Fink uses the kidnapped girl's radio to call Batwoman, who knows who he was from his first words. He wants Batwoman to go to the lair and meet him and his goons. Once there, we see that Prof. Neon invented a Happy Pill that causes people to dance. Think Prozac times 10 with Acid mixed in. The goons and Batwoman gather around a screen with chocolate milk and see Rat Fink's calling. While hearing that Rat Fink will let the girl go if Batwoman helps him steal an ATOMIC HEARING AID (Yes, nuclear powered hearing aid), Neon spikes Batwoman's drink with a pill. She sees this and gives the spiked drink to Neon, who winds up dancing the monkey as she opens the cage they were keeping the Batgirl in and left the area.

We then find out that the hearing aid has the power to cause a big explosion if nitro is applied to it and that's why Rat Fink wants it. Batwoman and the girls are hired to protect it, but wind up eating soup spiked with the Happy pill and while they're dancing, they steal the hearing aid.

Will they get it back? Will Batwoman stop Rat Fink? Will this movie drive you insane to the point where you can't wait until "Passions" is on? I can answer that last one: Yes.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Apparently, a foot is not the only thing that turns people on. Phone conversations do too.
  • When seeing someone being mugged, talk to the woman who's on the other end of your wrist radio. Police do nothing, it's talking that gets...well, nothing got done here...never mind.
  • A friend being kidnapped shouldn't stop your dance party.
  • People get tired of being happy.
  • Weird looking radar guns work better than lock picks.
  • Crooks, be sure your goons don't fall in love with the woman they're kidnapping or your crime will be foiled.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 1 min - OOOOOOOOOOOO! An initiation process. I'm sure this'll...wait...YOGURT?! SYNTHETIC VAMPIRES?! This is gonna hurt.
  • 4 mins - Want to know if you shot the guy you were mugging? Look into the barrel of your loaded gun.
  • 5 mins - And now, we're at a dance club. Dance club? What about the mugging?
  • 8 mins - A peeping luchador.
  • 15 mins - What's he doing to that model? EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
  • 36 mins - Want to find a stolen object and all you have to help you is Batwoman? Hold a seance. Hahahaha...kill me.
  • 37 mins - BAD CHINESE ALERT!
  • 38 mins - Again with the bad Chinese?!
  • 38 mins - ENOUGH WITH THE BAD CHINESE ALREADY!
  • 39 mins - FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING HOLY, SHUT UP!
  • 50 mins - What? Hey! That's from "The Mole People!" That's just...hahahahahaha! Someone, please kill me. I DON'T WANNA SEE THIS MOVIE!
  • 65 mins - If I may quote Tom Servo at this point: END! END!

Quotes: 

  • Captured Batgirl: "I'm tired of being happy!"
  • Hethcliff: "When I was a little boy, I was hit on the head and that was responsible for my high IQ."
  • From the MST3K Ep, Tom: "END! END!"

The reason I gave this a skull is that I saw the full verson and, without the MST3K crew, no matter how campy it is, its too painful to watch.  It ranks right up there with both Red Zone Cuba AND Manos, but just barley with Manos.

In my opinion (unfortunately the only one I have to give), the only really bad movie is a boring one and Wild World of Batwoman is not boring. It is, however, astonishingly bad. Colossally bad. Adjectiveendlessly bad. For instance, when the bad guys offer a captured Batwoman milk and maccaroons...it's a bad movie. While not as entertaining as Plan 9, it really belongs in some sort of time capsule right along next to it.
(Head-shakingly bad.)

Rating this one a skull seems a bit harsh. It's true that it's frequently boring and even occasionally painful. But at least it has spurts of campyness, which is more than you can say for some other MST3K turds like Manos, Red Zone Cuba, or Squirm. Now those are worthy of being rated a skull.

I don't get it...was there a law or something that said Batwoman couldn't be as young and beautiful as the girls who worked for her? oh, one other thing...SYNTHETIC VAMPIRES? I agree with Crow's comment on the MST3K ep..."It's like we're smart, but we're not!"

  C'mon guys! The wild world of Bat Woman was funny with a capital F. Hey, Siouxsie and the Banshees stole their look from this crassic hit.
  When it's running late and you want "the guest who wouldn't leave" to go. Pop The wild world of Bat Woman in the DVD player. He'll go.

All I can say is if you see this movie in a rental shop swap it with something better and destroy the movie

I saw this last night for the first time on a double bill with the Mexican "Santa Claus".  "Santa Claus" is Citizen Kane compared to this one --
The review here could have gone into a bit more detail, like how the Batgirl club spends most of their time thrashing out rules and regulations of the Batgirl society sort of like the Judaen People's Front vs. The People's Front of Judaea . . . Also, just how unfortunately unattractive the elderly actress with the oversized bosom IS, squeezed into her Batwoman costume --
Beggars description, really -- As someone said here, just headshakingly awful --

Brain damage on a stick. Only Mike and the Bots made this tolerable...barely.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
