Iconoclastic filmmaker Alex Cox offers a unique look at California consumer culture in the midst of the post-millennium financial meltdown in this surreal comedy. Pixxi De La Chasse (Jaclyn Jonet) is a self-centered daughter of privilege who spends her days getting into one scrape after another and letting her wealthy family bail her out. But after too many parking tickets and auto accidents (and no inclination toward working for a living), her dad cuts off her financial lifeline, and in time her car is repossessed. While trying to get it back, Pixxi meets two professional repo men, Arizona… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cox might yet again pull something astonishing from his ethos of trashcan poetry, but it simply didn't happen with "Repo Chick.""
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"The story behind Alex Cox's "Repo Chick" is more interesting than the movie itself..."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Repo Chick is a social reflection so bright and direct that it's often hard to look at. Not because it's so odd, mind you, but because it's so accurate in the targets it takes on."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"Cox is wearing his crash helmet backwards, leaving Repo Chick an aimless, unsatisfying mess that reaches for a cheeky mood of anarchy, only to achieve complete disinterest by the end credits."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Self-mocking but listless and shot in a textureless world, few jokes escape from this comic black hole."
‑ Vadim Rizov, Boxoffice Magazine
"Although moderately enjoyable if not taken too seriously, the pic will prove a sadly all-too-expected disappointment for those anticipating a sequel to match Cox's much-loved 1984 cult hit."
‑ Leslie Felperin, Variety
"[A] comic mishap, whose satire already feels out of date."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"The new film from Alex Cox is not a sequel to his cult classic Repo Man but a thoroughly screwy social satire..."
‑ Sean Axmaker,
"Like Waldo's Hawaiian Holiday, Alex Cox's unproduced first sequel to Repo Man, which was later turned into a comic book, Repo Chick is a typically flat caricature of the zeitgeist."
‑ Simon Abrams, Slant Magazine
"Admittedly, Cox's humor is eccentric, but I like it."
‑ Armond White, New York Press
"Both overstuffed and undernourished."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"There's an energy behind Repo Chick that you don't always get from major studio releases, and this helps balance out the low-budget warts the film carries."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Frankly, I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I love Repo Man, but I'm sort of fascinated by it, and I'm willing to look at it again someday."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"It shouldn't even be watchable, but writer-director Alex Cox manages to keep the cheese factor low."
‑ Bryant Frazer, Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
"A self-declared 'nonsequel' to irreverent Sid & Nancy helmer Alex Cox's Repo Man, with an addition of plenty of ballsy babes and bling, and yet another entry into that evolving genre of Recession Blues Cinema."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
