Chicks kick ass in Bitch Slap. But as per usual, the film, released January 8th, is neither unique nor empowering to women. The film is described on the website as “an explosive mélange of near-naked, weapon-slinging, grab-assing, hard-riding, profundity-spewing, sex bomb bad girls out for a score… [equipped with] gigantic jugs.” It certainly delivers on those counts.
Julia Voth, Erin Cummings, and America Olivo, are the lucky actors who get to play the three bodacious characters created by, surprise, surprise, two men, Rick Jacobson and Eric Gruendemann. The idea came about at a dinner party when the question, “what’s the most outrageous place you’ve ever been keyholed?” was asked. Urbandictionary.com has yet to define what exactly ‘keyholed’ means, but I’m sure you can all take a guess.
So, I can only assume that Bitch Slap, set in large part in the desert, was the fantasy answer to that question. And like the notorious Girls Gone Wild franchise, the film sure has enough cleavage, wet T-shirt and girl-on-girl kissing scenes to get that key in the hole.
Otherwise, it’s nothing to get excited about.
