WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Three gorgeous, barely dressed ladies, congregate on a gangster’s desert hideout in order to steal millions of dollars worth of diamonds.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
BITCH-SLAP is a one-joke premise stretched to its breaking point. Ostensibly a throw back to Russ Meyer flicks like FATER PUSSYCAT, KILL, KILL, director Rick Jacobson’s made a movie that owes more than a little to his TV work on shows like XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS, and SHE SPIES. While gets to throw in a bit more profanity and violence, BITCH SLAP is way too tame to work as good Grindhouse cinema. To steal from BACHELOR PARTY, “I usually don’t like my filth this clean”.

As for our three ladies- I dunno. All three are drop dead gorgeous, but the cheesy (deliberate?) acting hampers the film in a big way, and the 109 minute length (on the Unrated cut) feels damn right oppressive. I have nothing against exploitation, but this didn’t work for me at all. I’m sure there are folks out there that will like this, but for me- this is nowhere near this bawdy, exploitation throw-back this is advertised as.
THE EXTRAS
Not much here, other than a commentary track from the director and stars, as well as a making of featurette.

FINAL DIAGNOSIS
BITCH SLAP just really wasn’t my thing. If you’re trying to make an exploitation film, you should actually have some exploitation in it. However, this is just too tame on the skin front, but if you’re a fan of Jacobson’s shows like XENA, or CLEOPATRA 2525, you might like this.
