Bitch Slap

Don't watch Bitch Slap for the story. What passes for a story will most likely leave you confused, disappointed and saying"huh?" There are plenty of reasons to watch this film though. Reasons such as the three drop dead gorgeous leads, ridiculously cool dialogue, action packed scenes and just good old campy goodness. Bitch slap brings to mind the heights of Roger Corman but with modern technology and flashier effects. Not to mention Boobs, lots of boobs. While there is no nudity from the three leads, it really makes the film work better. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see this entire movie reenacted with all three leads naked, the lack of nudity adds to the sexy tease factor. The dialogue is absolutely priceless. You will find yourself repeating lines like "Ran this in your clam bake, bitch cake" and "kooterlicious." The movie also features the most brutal and bloody fist fight I have ever seen between two females. the fight isn't very realistic but it isn't matrix fake either. The movie is fronted and closed with vintage looking stripping and go-go style pop music. The movie would have been better suited to drop the heavy metal score and go with the poppy 70s sound of the closing credits.  The story is full of flashback after flashback, and will lose almost everyone.  It's like if Quentin Tarantino was on super crack while directing Pulp Fiction.  Just ignore it till the final flashback and tell everyone you got it.  They won't know any better.  Also look out for minor roles from Kevin Sorbo of Hercules, and Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor from Xena Warrior princess,
