"Refreshingly dark and spiky teen comedy, with Piper Perabo as the exchange student from Hell."
Perhaps because it has the worst title of the year so far, or perhaps because our expectations of teen comedy are so low that any spark of life is a cause to celebrate, but whatever the reason Slap Herů is a lot better than it sounds.
We’re in Texas, and everyone is stupid, self-centred or delusional. Our heroine, all-American cheerleading queen Starla (MacGregor) is all three. We first see her strutting her stuff at a Drop Dead Gorgeous-style beauty pageant themed around beef.
