Slap Her She's French | 2002 | PG-13 | - 4.3.5

Comedy with Piper Perabo as a French foreign exchange student in a small Texas town's high school who upsets the local social balance by attempting to usurp the position of the most popular girl. Also with Jane McGregor, Michael McKean, Alexandra Adi and Trent Ford. [1:33]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A young man and woman kiss romantically several times. A young man and woman kiss and hug each other while the young woman has her legs wrapped around the young man's waist. A young woman dances seductively for her boyfriend during a football game (hoping to motivate him) and a young woman dances suggestively with a young man. A young woman flirts with her teacher (who is obviously older) trying to convince him not to flunk her, and another young woman makes sexual overtures toward a man. A young woman touches a young man's face and he leans in to kiss her but she stops him. A young woman touches a young man's knee, and a young woman caresses a young man's face. Two young women sleep together with their arms around each other (it is suggested that there may be a sexual undertone). A pack of young men follow a young woman as she walks away. Young women dance, shimmy, thrust their hips, caress themselves and kick during cheerleading practice and again during football games. Young women in shorts and tube tops dance on a stage during a pageant. Three young women wear underwear and sleepwear. Young women wear outfits that reveal bare midriffs, cleavage, bare thighs, bare backs and shoulders throughout the movie. A boy looks at a magazine with photos of women in bathing suits. There are several lines delivered by a young French woman (who is still stumbling over some English terms) that can be construed as sexual in nature: she talks about a young man having "big meat" (he's holding a large barbecue rib), she says about another young woman's dancing ability, "she really knows how to spread her legs," and she says to a young man, "it must be nice to have a girl like that stuck on your body." A young woman talks about someone being drug addicted and using prostitution to pay for her drugs.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Two young women fight with ear pinching, face slapping, hair pulling and screaming. A young woman raises her hand to hit another young woman, she is stopped and the other young woman slaps her in the face. A young woman slaps a young man in the face. Young men slam into each other knocking each other through the air and to the ground during football games. A young woman screams and attacks another young woman holding her by the throat and shaking her. A young woman screams and ransacks her room in frustration. A young woman talks about her father having died and her lover having drowned. A young woman vomits on the floor (we see this scene a couple of times and we hear a splat and gagging). A woman, covered from head-to-toe with slabs of beef, marches onto a stage where she is slammed down by a man. A young man punches himself in the stomach after nearly choking on a piece of food (we see it fly from his mouth). A little girl gets her tongue stuck to an ice sculpture of a cow (on the rump). A young woman swats a huge cockroach on the wall. A woman in the top bunkbed flatulates in the face of a young woman in the bottom bunkbed. A young woman gets barbecue sauce on her face after kissing her boyfriend, who's had barbecue sauce on his face.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
