Bitch Slap (unrated) 2009 NR CC

Amazon Instant Video

(106) IMDb 4.5/10
Available in HD

Gratuitous, obscene, violent, adolescent and more than a little silly, this electrifying bitch-sploitation flick puts the "B" back in B-Movie! Paying homage to such hit exploitation films as Dragstrip Girls and Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill, director Rick Jacobson (TV's Xena: Warrior Princess, Baywatch) doesn't disappoint as he mixes bodacious bad girls, guns, sex, violence and cleavage into an adrenaline-fueled cocktail that'll leave you intoxicated for days! Trixie, Hel and Camero may look good on the outside, but they're nothing but badass on the inside. When they arrive in the desert to retrieve stolen jewels at a ruthless gangster's hideout, they find themselves competing against an assortment of bizarre criminals - and each other. But what else would you expect from a down-on-her luck stripper, a drug-running killer and a ball-busting businesswoman? Bitch Slap. It hurts so good.

This is a great movie, campy but great!
Dawn Trantham
Either you will love this movie because you understand its intentions, or you will hate it because you wanted more of a tangible story.
Rykre
It is free streaming on Netflix right now... I wish I would have known that before purchasing the DVD.

Oh yes, "Bitch Slap" is everything you think it is. Girls. Guns. Catfights. Explosions. Lesbian romances. A story of bad guys, booty, alliances, betrayals, and secrets. It's being billed as, "a post-modern, thinking man's throwback to the B movie/exploitation films of the 1950s - 70s," but the truth is it gives us little to think about, and I'm hard pressed to say that it reexamines modern assumptions of culture, identity, and language. It does, however, open with a Joseph Conrad quote: "The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness." We see the word "men" and automatically think it's a blatant anti-male message. But by the end of the film, it's made abundantly clear that women are just capable of being wicked. Equality through evil. Funny.

This movie is irredeemably enjoyable, preposterous in both its story and its characters yet magnetic as a satire disguised as a schlocky male fantasy. It tells the story of three bad girls, all smoking hot, who find themselves in a plot to extort diamonds and weapons from an underworld kingpin, whose identity is a secret. The redhead is Hel, presumably short for Helen (Erin Cummings); she seems to be the leader of the group, tough but levelheaded, able to see the big picture and plan accordingly. The blonde is Camero (America Olivo), an oversexed hothead who's on medication. She's one of those people that hates everyone and is mad about everything, and has the dialogue to prove it. The brunette is a stripper named Trixie (Julia Voth), always upset, always overwhelmed, always wanting to play by the rules.

Leaping back and forth between the present and anywhere from a few hours to multiple weeks in the past, Bitch Slap introduces us to our triumvirate of heroines first via their low-cut costumes for short hand: bad-ass biker bitch Camaro, `40s femme fatale Hel and bimbo stripper Trixie. As the opening credits attest, this is first and foremost an unapologetic exploitation movie, so each woman is filmed first at chest level, followed by a tilt up to the perfectly made-up faces. The shorthand established, the movie then has fun playing with the viewer's expectations from there on out.

Pulling up in a muscle car, our heroines yank open the truck to reveal mid-level gangster Gage (played by Hercules star Michael Hurst), bloody and nearly naked in silk robe and banana hammock. They're out in the desert, near a run down trailer, and demand he reveal the location of his hidden storehouse of ill-gotten treasures. When a badly-timed bullet prevents his confession, the girls are forced to dig, shovels in hand and impractical shoes on pedicured feet. As the story moves forward, we jump back and slowly learn how they got to this point in time. All the double-dealings, back-stabbings, assaults, murders and insane associates that led them to this desert. Each flashback brings a new height of lunacy until, by the end, the movie is almost saying "Oh, you bought that one, did you? How about this?"

Bitch Slap throws everything at you.

The most anticipated and hyped up B-Movie ever. All three women were doing interviews everywhere for many many websites, they have videos on youtube. 3 of the most fun loving attractive women you'll see.

After months and almost a whole year delaying the release BitchSlap is finally here and it is what you would expect from a B movie, but just a little better.

Julia Voth and Erin Cummings create one of the most talked about girl/girl scenes. probably will go down as one of the most popular B Movies ever.

I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting when I rented Bitch Slap, besides of course beautiful women romping around in inappropriate clothing, which I got in abundance, but I sure wasn't expecting to enjoy this movie as much as I did. Nor did I expect such an in-depth, amusing, and unusually long "making of" special feature. I certainly wasn't expecting some of the candid reveals the heroines give in their voice-over (1 of 2 excellent audio commentary tracks). And I sure never expected to then rush out and buy this modern-day homage to the sexploitation films of my youth, but it was so fun I couldn't resist.

Bitch Slap is by no means perfect. Its very low budget meant the makers had to live with some scene continuity issues that a more flush production would have fixed. The green screen work was at times painfully obvious, but I personally found that it added to the overall and over the top camp the film embraced. Some will disagree. Some might also be disappointed with an almost complete lack of nudity (there is a half-second blip of a nipple in a bar scene), but on this topic I think Slap's creators were spot on. The lack of nudity is much like the fabled Persian Flaw - a purposeful mar introduced so as not to offend the gods with man-made perfection. The female leads are so gorgeous, frankly, that had they bared all I would still be watching that movie. I'm sure the producers wanted to avoid lawsuits involving >4hour erectile issues. Also, and I mean this with all sincerity, Bitch Slap is not a bad date movie. Add nudity, however, and your female friend goes from thinking "I totally want to be that kick-ass chick" to "e[...] porn".

To be clear, Bitch Slap is first and foremost a movie about hot women in skimpy clothes being bad-asses.
