Twitch TIFF 09: BITCH SLAP Review


by Todd Brown, September 15, 2009 10:50 AM

"Stunt woman extrodinaire Zoe Bell makes a cameo appearance but is far more present as the picture's stunt co-ordinator, giving each of the women a totally believable physical presence.  The women themselves are full of charisma, leaping through costume changes and action pieces with just as much energy as they deliver line after line of wildly over the top dialogue.  The support parts?  Fantastic, with Jacobson pulling in favors from his Xena and Hercules days stashing players from both - including Kevin Sorbo, Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor into key support roles.

Subtext? There aint no subtext here.  Bitch Slap is all about the surface appeal, all about delivering a good time to fans who like their entertainment a little on the trashy side.  And that it absolutely does, the film paying off at a level slightly above expectations - expectations that were already fairly high based on the stellar trailers.
