Slap Her She's French



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

MPAA Rating: PG-13

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.

PROFANITY 5 - 1 F-word, 6 sexual references, 3 scatological terms, 6 anatomical terms, 26 mild obscenities, 2 derogatory terms for homosexuals, 1 religious profanity, 8 religious exclamations (once in French, but not translated) and some name-calling. [profanity glossary]

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
