Slap Her... She's French

Synopsis: A French foreign exchange student, named Genevieve, comes to a small town in Texas to attend a local high school where she shacks up with the school's popular head cheerleader, Starla, and her parents. But Starla soon learns that this French girl is not only smart, attractive, and naive, but quite conniving when Geneviere, with no social life of her own, begins to take over Starla's, starting with stealing the affections her parents, her friends and Starla's boyfriend. When Starla is forced to quit the cheerleading squad after getting some bad grads, Genevieve moves in to take her place. When Starla figures out that Genevieve deliberately set it up by giving her bad tutoring to fail all those classes, she begins an all-out personal war against Genevieve to take back her social life.

we're all capable

of doing bad things.

Lord knows,

I've done my share,


I'm truly ashamed of.

But should my life,

so young and full

of sweet promise,

be tragically cut down

before it ever

had a chance to shine?


If I ever get out of here,

as god as my witness,

somebody's gonna pay.

Or as the great

German philosopher

Fred Nietzsche once said,

that which does not kill us

is gonna wish it had,

because we're about

to fed-ex its sorry ass

back to skank central,

where it came from...

Or something like that.

My daddy always says everything

is bigger here in Texas,

even the sky.

I don't know

how true that is,

since I've never

been over the state line.

[Cows mooing]

I do know

that the lone star state

has produced

lots of famous people.

John Wayne

is from Texas;

also presidents eisenhower,

Johnson, bush, and bush;

Ann Richards,

who's a democrat

but a really cool person;

the Mary Kay

of Mary Kay cosmetics;

and one day soon, me.

I was gonna join the ranks

of these illustrious texans,

no matter what it took.

I was gonna be a TV star.

I know

what you're thinking--

why would some

supremely smart girl like me

want to be just a TV star?

The answer--

good morning, America.

What could be more

satisfying and rewarding

than knowing that,

every morning,

this great American nation

with a smile?

I never doubted I'd make it

if I followed

the path to the top

footstep by footstep,

and tonight was

a very crucial footstep.

Starla, we don't want

to be late, darling.

I'm ready.

Oh, all eyes are gonna

be on my little girl.

Oh, daddy, please.

Enjoy it while

you can, cupcake,

before time and gravity

do their dirty work.

You just look

beautiful, darling.

Doesn't she just look

beautiful, Randolph?

She looks like

a drag queen.

Shut up,



What do you know

about drag queens?

Get out of here.

I am what I am

straight out of

Cali, Cali

I am bringing it to you

Starla, have you decided

if we're gonna participate

in that foreign exchange

thing or not?

It is an honor to be

selected as a host family.

Mama, you've been bugging me

about this for months now.

What do I want

some little French tart


around here for?


in her letters,

that little girl

just sounds so sweet,

and she wants to

come here so badly.

Mama's only thinking

about you, honey.

You know you can't

afford to fail French.

I know.

I just don't have time

to be entertaining

some foreigner.

And besides, we pulled

their ungrateful French butts

out of 2 world wars.

Isn't that enough?

Now, starla, I want

you to remember--

there's no shame in not

winning the beauty pageant.

It's not a beauty pageant.

It's a celebration

of all that it means

to be a modern woman--

charm, class,

and sophistication.

[Music playing]

Beef, it beats

any vegetable

beef, mmm,

it tastes incredible


nothing's indigestible

about beef

beef, it's what's for dinner

every day...

It's the little things

she does.

Look at her eyebrows

when she sings "beef."

Here it comes. to beef

Isn't that darling?

"Beef." See it?

[Whispering] what?

I don't like this

Japanese music.

It's Mozart.

No, smarty.

Mozart played

the piano.

Kyle, you know you're not

supposed to be in here.

I just came by to wish

my best babe luck.

Oh, thank you.

But I won't need it.

All that's left is

the interview portion,

and there's no way

i can lose.

No matter what they ask,

I'm gonna bring up god.

Then me and you can do

some celebrating.

places, ladies.
