Bitch Slap (2009)

After a day away from the blog, I decided to jump back into things literally with a bang. OK, I do not have a gun or fireworks to shoot off, but there was enough of that kind of exaggerated action in this flick to make Republican’s smile or giggle inside. Hell, I bet the democrats cringe at stuff like this (especially someone as idiotic as Tipper Gore, who ruined the creative process in the United States). What is it you ask? It is Bitch Slap from 2009.

Plot/ When three curvaceous babes, stripper Trixie, business executive Hel, and the feisty ex-con Camero, arrive at a desert hideaway to steal a stash of diamonds from an underworld kingpin, things quickly spiral out of control. Allegiances are switched, truths are revealed, criminals are unmasked and nothing is quite what it seems as the fate of the world is precariously balanced among this trio of sexy femmes fatales.

As soon as I read the case on this one, I had a feeling that it would be some sort of Russ Meyer tribute, something that would warm my heart on these cold nights. Fortunately, that was pretty much what it was. Yes, it was an over-exaggerated, bad B-movie, but that is exactly what it was supposed to be. Actually, this was an entertaining and fun romp through classic exploitation / grindhouse cinema. It had everything that made those flicks awesome; big boobs, cheesy dialogue, creative camerawork, cool gadgets, and over-the-top action (and did I mention hot chicks with big boobs). Yes, there was uneven to poor acting and a unfortunate soundtrack, but it all seemed to come together to form an amusing action flick that pays homage to a generation of movies that should never be forgotten. Sure, it is not for everyone and anyone expecting a masterpiece should stay away, but if you are fan of low budget exploitation cinema, definitely check this one out.
