The latest proof that calculated camp in the form of homage is nearly impossible to pull off.
Ernest Hardy - Village Voice
Overblown and underwhelming.
Joe Leydon - Variety
Over-the-top -- and ultimately tiresome -- female mud-wrestling, kick-boxing and cat fights in a parody of old exploitation movies.
Kirk Honeycutt - Hollywood Reporter
The target audience must be that awfully precise niche that never tires of women punching each other.
Michael Ordona - Los Angeles Times
Jacobson and Gruendemann appear determined to put the grind into grindhouse. And not in a good way. Everything goes on so long, including an excessively protracted catfight, that the viewer will be crying for mercy before the characters do.
Jason Best - Movie Talk
It's an homage to the exploitation genre that doesn't pay full homage to the exploitation genre.
Kevin Carr - 7M Pictures
Just go watch Death Proof again instead.
Dave White - Movies.com
By far the best elements are the regular flashbacks, which showcase the crazy comic book vibe at its best and have some truly spectacular Charlie's Angels-style moments.
Scotty McKellar - Skinny
Scotty McKellar - The Skinny
More suitable for background noise on a late night than an actual big event you can gather with your friends to watch...
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
If the film's half-baked salaciousness feels merely risible, its slapdash screenplay and cheapo look make it something that its generic forbearers rarely were: boring.
Matthew Connolly - Slant Magazine
Like an issue of Maxim that flips its own pages, but keeps stopping to read the articles.
William Goss - Cinematical
It twists and twists and twists past the point of reason and logic. Best of all, it doesn't care. It just keeps going.
Fred Topel - Can Magazine
Overstays its welcome, but offers some broad fun and some fun broads.
Scott Weinberg - FEARnet
Hurt me some more.
Staci Layne Wilson - Horror.com
All the revealing costumes, Penthouse Letter structure, and girl nation rumbling can't cover the fact that Bitch Slap is an awesome idea handed the least effective execution possible.
