Touch and Go begins with three masked figures cracking open a safe and making off with the money inside. A car chase ensues, with the bandits switching cars in a parking garage, revealing the gimmick: the crooks are three attractive women – Eva (Wendy Hughes), Fiona (Chantal Contouri) and Millicent (Carmen Duncan).
The three lady Robin Hoods from Sydney are actually stealing the money to help a school for underprivileged kids.
But they lose the cash and the ladies have to plan a bigger job – a heist on a luxury casino resort hotel on a tropical island.
They have to recruit three more women – Gina (Jeanie Drynan), Helen (Liddy Clark) and Sue (Christine Amor) – to pull the job off but as the caper unfolds, things don’t go exactly according to plan.
This all-women heist comedy features some of Australia’s most beautiful actresses. It’s badly written, poorly filmed, has a plot full of holes, and was never going to win any awards. But it’s a fun little caper movie with a bevy of pretty ladies and plenty of 1980s clothes and music.
The token males in the film include John Bluthal as Anatole, the hopeless man who runs an inn and a bank and gets shaken down by the women, and singer Jon English as Frank, a prying gardener/handyman.
Touch and Go was filmed on location on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland (at the Sunfair International Hotel in Maroochydore) and in Sydney. The film was originally called Friday the 13th but the title was changed when producers discovered a movie of the same name was being made in the US.
