4.0 out of 5 stars Saw the Flick - Cat Fights! August 30, 2002
By J. Rose
I have not been so blessed as some of the other folks reviewing this movie. I haven't caught any other films by the lead actress. But I have actually SEEN the movie, not just the trailer.
As for the flick, what with cartoonish characters, plot improbabilities, and obvious reverses, you'd think I'd hate this trifle. You'd be wrong.
Late summer movies are rarely anything other than entertaining. This is not a bad thing. And a chance to see multiple female-on-female fights is brought to hilarious fruition.
Like any good comedy, it is built on a bedrock of tragedy and horror. Our Heroine is a girl who'll do anything to become a co-host on The Today Show. Her dippy boyfriend is the quarterback for the school team who seems destined for a coronary at 20. Her mother is an alcoholic. Her father is a bitter romantic. She stabs even her best friends in the back. Lesbians (or more accurately, women who are perceived as lesbian) are ridiculed. The little brother is a snide, jaded fellow.
Then comes the transfer student. Who, like Eve in All About Eve, watches and waits to take over every aspect of Starla's life. She sucks up the parents, the cheerleading spot, and the dippy boyfriend. Then all hell breaks loose, slowly at first, then with a vengeance. And that is what this movie is about: vengeance.
Funny. Yes. Laugh-out-loud funny? Absolutely. Worth your time? Yes, if you want fairly mindless entertainment. And especially if you love mock battles feminine.
P.S. Slap Her, She's French is a funny title. Not cause for a PC war. This movie doesn't pick on the French any more than the rest of US society. We think they look down their noses at us. That makes us believe it's OK to give them grief. It's not like anyone who views this movie is liable to slap anyone, let alone anyone French.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise May 26, 2005
I admit that at the beginning of this, I had my doubts but by the end I was laughing my head off.

The movie begins in Texas "where even the sky is bigger" and parts of it are kind of hilariously exaggerated if you have ever lived Texas. The main characters wear big sunglasses and shiny fake alligator skin suits in shades of neon pink and yellow with cowboy boots.

Neither of the two characters are sympathetic at the beginning of the movie, but it's fun to watch them get what's coming to them as the film progresses. The main character, Starla is a self absorbed high school cheerleader with the perfect boyfriend and a thick southern accent. Her dream is of someday crossing the state line and being an anchor for "Good Morning America". She volunteers to host an exchange student to win a beauty pageant after one of the other contestants steals her sure-fire answer to any pageant question by bringing up the lord.

In the beginning, she's totally self absorbed and irritating. But by the end she gets more than her share of what she deserves.

There are some great twists in the movie and a couple of parts that are a litle more subtle but still funny.

For instance, in one scene, the girls in Starla's clique ask a guy that work on the school paper what he's wearing.

He answers "A T-shirt" and they then point out in heavy southern accents that "it ain't got no label on it".

In another part, Starla wakes up during a sleepover and her two best friends are sleeping on the floor together in their underwear, spooning. She glances at them, shakes her head in puzzlement and looks at them again before she leaves the room. When they catch up with her downstairs they mention that they "slept well."

If you watch this movie at all, the part where Starla ends up in jail makes most of the earlier fluff worth it. I thought it was actually a pretty fun way to spend a couple of hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars oh, sweet jocularity! love it! August 25, 2005
I saw this movie a while ago, and immediately went out a bought it. On the surface, it's a ridiculous movie with completely despicable, stereotypical characters who have predictable paradigm shifts and change their ways. And okay, that's kinda what it is. But it's FUNNY!!!

This movies is full of not-so-subtle subtleties, a very tongue-in-cheek kind of humor. Another post compared it to Drop Dead Gorgeous, and I definitely agree. It constantly makes fun of itself, which makes the parts of it which could otherwise be offensive hilarious.

The movie plays off of maxims about the French, Texans, jocks, nerds, etc. Much in the same was as Not Another Teen Movie, but much smarter. It could be taken offensively, but it is really SO outrageous that it's hilarious instead of hateful.

Some highlights (though you really must watch the movie to understand the context and appreciate the humor): the Beef Pageant, "Mmmmmm, A1.", calling "Genevieve" "Jen-of-eve", "Oh, I like Dick!", "He brought me the mustard!!!!!"...oh, so many more.

A flaw in the movie, for me, was that I never really liked Ed, the sensitive, loner, non-jock guy. He was cute, sure, but I always kinda felt like he was sleazy and was gonna turn bad or something. Anyone else feel this way? Maybe it's just me...

Some people will definitely hate this movie, but overall I loved it. If you haven't seen it, and enjoy the farcical style of Drop Dead Gorgeous, you will probably enjoy this movie.

This movie is a cult classic for its raunchy small town humor! I appreciate the typical characters that aren't played so typically. Definitely worth the buy!
