Critic Reviews for Bitch Slap
The latest proof that calculated camp in the form of homage is nearly impossible to pull off.
The target audience must be that awfully precise niche that never tires of women punching each other.
Over-the-top -- and ultimately tiresome -- female mud-wrestling, kick-boxing and cat fights in a parody of old exploitation movies.
Jacobson and Gruendemann appear determined to put the grind into grindhouse. And not in a good way. Everything goes on so long, including an excessively protracted catfight, that the viewer will be crying for mercy before the characters do.
It's an homage to the exploitation genre that doesn't pay full homage to the exploitation genre.
By far the best elements are the regular flashbacks, which showcase the crazy comic book vibe at its best and have some truly spectacular Charlie's Angels-style moments.
More suitable for background noise on a late night than an actual big event you can gather with your friends to watch...
If the film's half-baked salaciousness feels merely risible, its slapdash screenplay and cheapo look make it something that its generic forbearers rarely were: boring.
Like an issue of Maxim that flips its own pages, but keeps stopping to read the articles.
It twists and twists and twists past the point of reason and logic. Best of all, it doesn't care. It just keeps going.
Overstays its welcome, but offers some broad fun and some fun broads.
All the revealing costumes, Penthouse Letter structure, and girl nation rumbling can't cover the fact that Bitch Slap is an awesome idea handed the least effective execution possible.
Audience Reviews for Bitch Slap
This was suppose to be a B movie but i think they took themselves too serious. Its a throwback exploitation film but it fails to live up to what those were or do anything really different. It shot in a highly stylized format though which does give it a very interesting visual appeal. But it really is bad :)More
Bitch Slap is one of the worst films that I've seen in the last few years. The film tries to be like other comic book style films such as Sin City, but it fails. Bitch Slap is a boring, uninteresting film with poor acting, poor plot and directing. However the film does look cool, unfortunately that's not even enough to save this dreadful wreck of a film. The film could have been something good and entertaining, but the director doesn't know how to create effective action scenes or develop a good, engaging plot. Bitch Slap suffers from a poor script, and the potential is ruined on-screen. The film has nothing to offer. I was pretty bored watching this film, and you'd think with a title like Bitch Slap, you'd be in for a wild, crazy ride that's pure fun from beginning to end. Sadly, the film is quite bland. Bitch Slap is a missed opportunity to do something great as an action film. You'd think with a title like that, that the film would be awesome, unfortunately, it's not. The film is quite poor, and is a waste of time. The film tries to pull off the Tarantino/Rodriguez formula of Grindhouse but it fails to effectively create some sort of homage to the genre. The film is poorly done, really doesn't do anything to entertain you. The action scenes are dull, and uninspired. Where Grindhouse was fun film to watch, and was an effective homage to the Grindhouse films of the 70's, this one fails to deliver the fun that Grindhouse delivered so well. Bitch Slap is a slap in the viewers face, and really is not entertaining. The film is terrible and has nothing good or entertaining about it. The script sucks, the acting sucks and overall the film sucks. Avoid this piece of trash.More
All Hail the "Poet Laureates," Rick Jacobson and Rick Gruendeman! This modern take on the exploitation film is pure entertainment, the B movie taken about as far as it could and still maintain an R rating. It stars the 3 unique personalities and skill sets of Camero, Hel, and Trixie as the sexy feminine triumvirate, the males in the story only one-note players. The characters are so clichéd, there's even a bad Japanese schoolgirl. Also, several Hercules/Xena veterans like Kevin Sorbo and Lucy Lawless make cameo appearances. The film is completely outrageous, shallow, campy, trashy, and violent. It contains perhaps the most gratuitous scenes I can remember in one film. I loved Machete, but this one has more cleavage and lesbianism thrown in.
I'm sure Russ Meyer set the standard, and Quentin Tarantino brought it back, but this sexploitation romp stands up to any comparison. There's a storyline and plot twists, but ultimately what's the point? I'd risk giving away the ending, but the DVD cover itself hints at that. It is disjointed, and the numerous flashbacks break up the action but do not seriously deter the fun. Does it take itself too seriously? Not really, but it could have been even funnier. I cannot see anyone complaining of boredom though some have. It's three extremely hot babes kicking ass and exploring each other. It's an extreme guilty pleasure, and if the goal is a campy T & A fest, then mission accomplished!
Much like The Spirit, this tries to be another graphic novel type of moive that really just doesnt deliver. The only good character is the interesting looking punk badguy.More
