Quick hit: Bitch Slap Movie

Continuing this week’s “WTF?” series, here’s the teaser trailer for Bitch Slap Movie“, scheduled for theatrical release around Christmastime. They’ve been promoting the movie this weekend at Comic Con.

It’s all breasts, guns, and sexy, sexy violence. I guess this is BDSM porn for teenagers who won’t admit it? (Yet?)

The blurb:

Bitch Slap is a modern throwback to the “B” Movie/Exploitation films of the 1950’s — 70’s, mixing hot girls, fast cars, big guns, nasty tongues, outrageous action and jaw-dropping eye candy with a message…don’t be naughty. “Cult Classic” and “Cinematic Masterpiece” barely encompass this cat-fighting, girl-banging, pile-driving, go-go dancing, bronco-busting, bumping and grinding, philosophy-touting, breast-augmenting, femme-tastic f%@#-fest-fight-fantasy of epic proportions.

Bitch Slap – You know you want it!

Countdown to “It’s a joke!” “Can’t you see the irony?!” in 3…2…1…

  1. Humourless feminist here. Asshats there.

  2. Well they spelt Congreve wrong. FAIL

  3. I blame Tarantino for dredging up all of this “ironic” exploitation shit. It’s not irony, it’s not satire, it’s just misogyny (and a bunch of ugly -isms) with a smirk. Why the hell would anyone want to get all nostalgic about the darker trappings of that particular era in the first place? Unless, of course, it’s a dude nuturing secret fantasies of being a manly man in a clear-cut world where women, minorities, etc. know their place.

  4. Why didn’t they just have the women shooting bullets from their boobs? Why bother with guns at all?

  5. Why didn’t they just have the women shooting bullets from their boobs? Why bother with guns at all?

    Two theories:
    1. It’s about the particular construction of masculinity being appealed to. “What do men like?” “Chicks! And guns!” “I know! We’ll have chicks AND guns! Even better! Chicks WITH guns! YEAH!”
    2. It’s about a twisted fake-out faux-feminism. “Look, the chicks in this flick are POWERFUL and STRONG, therefore I’m totally think girls are cool and my relationship with this film isn’t really about dominance and objectification. Yeah.” I doubt they believe it themselves, but maybe it creates just enough veneer of plausible deniability to mitigate the shame.

  6. “It’s not irony, it’s not satire, it’s just misogyny (and a bunch of ugly -isms) with a smirk.”
    I’m with redblossom – Tarantino has a lot to answer for.
    Nice use of language on the website too – the ‘community’/forums pages are called “gang bang”…

  7. “Girl Banging”? *sigh*
    You know what I think would be ironic? Doing the same sort of shots except on men. Sexxing up the men for a change. Like those redone Marvel covers that someone did a while back with “This ain’t no Super BOY here”.
    I somehow don’t think the champions of this film would appreciate that.

  8. I avoided Black Snake Moan at the cinemas just based on the hoarding artwork. Scantilly and physically abused little white girl is chained up ‘for her own good’ by older black man. On what planet is that NOT dodgy?
