"Nude Nuns With Big Guns"

That's the classy title of what is, no doubt, a classy motion picture.

In what must be the most sordidly entertaining series of intellectual-property cases to come down the pike in a while, two companies are suing each other for ownership of the said classy film, and have at the same time brought separate suits against the no-doubt-dozens of Internet users who have already downloaded it via BitTorrent and related technologies.

The picture is brought to us by the aptly-named Freak Show Entertainment, and harks back to the golden age of Roger Corman and, especially, Russ Meyer. Among the many great tag lines: "I'm not here to confess any sins. I'm here to commit them." Yeah, we've heard that one before.

Here's a quick look at the legal situation. And here, for those of you not offended by violence, nudity and sacrilege -- all gratuitous practically by definition -- is the NSFW trailer.
