Starla Grady (Jane McGregor), the most popular girl at Splendona High School in Splendona, TX, is on top of the world. That is, at least, until foreign-exchange student Genevieve LePlouff (Piper Perabo) moves in with Starla's family. Starla's parents had hoped that Genevieve's tutoring would help raise Starla's French grade, which had dropped dangerously low. At first, like Starla's other followers, Genevieve seems in awe of her charmed existence. However, when Genevieve's story of misfortune

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A gratingly unfunny groaner littered with zero-dimensional, unlikable characters and hackneyed, threadbare comic setups.
Good-looking but relentlessly lowbrow outing plays like Clueless Does South Fork.
...even if one were willing to overlook the downright aimless storyline, there's still the dearth of laughs and muddled character motives to contend with.
[Mayron] manages to keep things affectionate even while she's sending things up higher than a full moon over Texas.
Takes one character we don't like and another we don't believe, and puts them into a battle of wills that is impossible to care about and isn't very funny.
A droll, bitchy frolic which pokes fun at the price of popularity and small-town pretension in the Lone Star State.
Clever and unflinching in its comic barbs, Slap Her is a small but rewarding comedy that takes aim at contemporary southern adolescence and never lets up.
If we're to slap protagonist Genevieve LePlouff because she's French, do we have that same option to slap her creators because they're clueless and inept?
The humor is forced and heavy-handed, and occasionally simply unpleasant.
... a cute and sometimes side-splittingly funny blend of Legally Blonde and Drop Dead Gorgeous, starring Piper Perabo in what could be her breakthrough role.
A delectable little treat that's sunny, funny, and far more intelligent than you'd expect.
The script falls back on too many tried-and-true shenanigans that hardly distinguish it from the next teen comedy.
