Super Bitches – Short Script Review (Available for Production)

Super Bitches

For all the times you wish you had the guts to say exactly what you think or feel, the Super Bitches app is custom made for you! Programmed to come to your aid!

You know how they always say ‘there’s an app for that’? Well – despite the fact smart phones have been on the scene for eight whole years (thank you Steve Jobs – a million times) – sometimes Foursquare and Yelp just don’t cut it. Especially in these modern, tacky days!

After all, there’s no app to stop drivers from cutting in front of your car. Crunching Doritos in your ear as a movie plays. Or parking in the handicapped space – despite being the able-bodied “jock of the year.”

Nope – “Jerk Be Gone” apps are vaporware. At least until Super Bitches came on the scene!

But when you find out just how this darling little app works, you’ll wonder how you ever got through your day!

The premise: that the Super Bitches app is a new service – one that makes Uber seem damned low-tech. Push a “help button” on your phone, and the Super Bitches will rush to your aid. They’re the kind of backup every woman dreams of having in her corner: overcoming female discrimination and mistreatment with cleverly-sharpened tongues – and more super hero chutzpah than you can shake a Kryptonian stick at!

When you crack open this witty script, you’ll not only reserve a front-row seat to see the Bitches in action – you’ll also get a peek into SB HQ, to see what happens behind the scenes. And talk about a dynamic team! There’s Janet (Bitch Chick), and her erstwhile teammates as well: Pregnant Bitch and Attitude Bitch (my personal favorite.) Especially when PMS enters the room. Then there’s the interview process. Can newbie Tara join the team? Only if she has a super power that’ll make the other Bitches seem tame!

Stuffed with (girly?) giggles from beginning to end, Super Bitches may be tongue in cheek – but it delivers a powerful punch; not to mention an empowering message that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Written by comic writing pro Debra Johnson, Super Bitches kicks female stereotype butts and takes names; tossing thoughts of passivity to the curb. Get a few actresses with terrific muscles and awesome timing – and just imagine what this’ll look like on the screen. Not to mention a few great sound effects, such as that dramatic and cheesy “ding”!

 – And for those looking for even more potential: Super Bitches is due for expansion: there’s a sure-to-be hysterical feature in the “Bitches” future! –

Pages: 10

Budget: Not bad at all. Minimal shoot locations and a fairly large cast.  Most of the scenes are self-contained – perfect if you have a group of actors who can commit to just one day of filming.
