About the film[]

The film is about three women who start a lunch wagon business, but run into resistance from their competitor Mr. Schmeckler (Rick Podell) when their business starts interfering with Schmeckler's illegal activities. While Schmeckler busies himself trying to sabotage their wagon, the women are busy falling in love with construction workers and rock stars. Meanwhile, two bumbling diamond thieves create complications for both sides.

Lunch Wagon is notable for being the first major exposure for the band Missing Persons, credited as 'Teddy and Rough Riders', with their songs "Mental Hopscotch" and "I Like Boys" featuring prominently on the soundtrack.
