Christmas 2008. That makes it eligible for Oscar contention, no?

Man, I missed this one. My friend just sent me this over an e-mail. That has to be the best movie trailer I have ever seen, only to be eclipsed by the title!

Got my tickets to this confirmed a few days ago, although I'm skeptical that anyone could "do" Russ Meyer better than Russ Meyer. These gals don't look half bad, but they're no Tura or Haji.

Re: Bitch Slap

This movie is just bad, awful, one of the worst films of the year. It's not a "it's so bad, it's good movie" either. Just awful.

Re: Bitch Slap

Hardly. It's definitely not a "so bad it's good movie" because it's actually quite good. As I suspected above, only Russ Meyer can do Russ Meyer, but this production deserves credit for channeling the spirit of his mid- to late-60's films a great deal of the time (so for people who haven't seen them, something will be missing, and the filmmakers have no intention of 'splainin' it to you), and adding their own—somewhat less successful—"fantasy/spy" cosmetics. I firmly believe the master would have been modestly impressed, even if he knew he could have done this better in his heyday.

Re: Bitch Slap

Brian, how can this be a good movie? The montage of this "classic genre" at the beginning of the movie didnt make the movie any better. U can say that u liked the movie or u can say that this movie was entertaining, but this movie is just a bad amateurish piece of shit film. If Tarantino directed the film, then there would be the chance of it being a good movie. It's not even a good B-movie.

I look forward to what other people think of this film.

Re: Bitch Slap

I can't say I saw a fun moment in the trailer. It looks like it was all filmed in some dusty RV parking lot.

You are close enough - the whole film is filmed in an empy dusty area of the desert in Arizona or Nevada. The set design is a car and a Winnebago.

It was shot in the desert, just like many of Russ Meyer's films. This is completely and utterly an homage to the overblown world of Russ Meyer, only amped up with more flash than it probably needed. This does not mean the film can't be enjoyed—or hated, evidently—if you haven't seen his pictures. It just means the experience is lessened considerably without that context, and considering how under-the-radar his films are these days (and overpriced in R1), that will likely be the case for a lot of people tempted to pick it up. As much as I'm saddened when that happens, the filmmakers did choose a very specific idol to worship here.

I do not think it's a great film (I could've done without the stunt casting of friends-of-the-director Kevin Sorbo and Lucy Lawless). I do think it's a movie that is reasonably worthy of it's obvious inspiration, and will provide modest rewards to some more than others, but Meyer could have done it sooo much better.

This is not true. Of course.

The present-day sequences were indeed shot in the desert, with the main "set" being a beat-up old trailer and the valley around it. The flashbacks, and there are a lot of them, were filmed in a studio using plenty of green-screen and CGI for a deliberately phony sense of heightened reality. Do some research.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say "whole" film. I meant the majority of the film was set in the desert, not including the lousy green-screen CGI scenes. One would think that there are tons of big-breasted decent actresses in Los Angeles. Why did they choose the worst ones? Did they get these actresses from the team of Youtube bikini girls that recite famous lines from movies? Oh yeah, it's a homage to Russ Meyer actresses being bad. Such genius filmmaking.




Homage, Smomage. Who cares? Did you ever see Sky Captain & The World of Tomorrow or Monarch of the Moon? Those are homages too - one big budget and one small budget. Do you know what they both share in common? Suckness.

Re: Bitch Slap

Saw this last night courtesy of Netflix.

I recommend this movie if you:
A) Are a fan of old Russ Meyer films
B) Enjoy comic books done by Image Comics like Danger Girl, or drawn by the late Michael Turner (comic book fans know of what I speak).
C) Are about two beers shy of a six-pack

The best way is D, all of the above. But I have to say, if part C is not present, you have no business viewing this in any way, shape, or form.

Danger Girl would make an awesome movie....The Playstation 1 video game of Danger Girl is probably my favorite game after Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter...

Re: Bitch Slap

What's sad is that they never showed any of the main stars' goodies in this one. Erin Cummings apparently has no problem with nudity, as she bares it all on Spartacus about every week.

Yes, as are Lucy Lawless, Renee O'Connor, and Kevin Sorbo. I'm guessing they're all cameos.

Re: Bitch Slap

Yea it was pretty bad, BUT the women are hotttt. The girl in the low cut tank top is just drop dead gorgeous. There's a nice little lesbian makeout scene too.

I'd buy the dvd for 5 bucks or so.

Re: Bitch Slap

I tried watching it (rented it) but it felt longer than Avatar somewhere about an hour into the movie. Very slow and painful to watch. No where near the quality that is Planet Terror or even the decent B-movie spoof Black Dynamite.
