‘Girls Against Boys’ Trailer: Danielle Panabaker Rids the World of Bad Boyfriends

Published 2 years ago by , Updated February 16th, 2014 at 9:23 am,

Watch out, guys – you do not want to get on Danielle Panabaker and Nicole LaLiberte’s bad sides.

In Girls Against Boys Panabaker leads as Shae, an innocent college girl having a tough time finding the right guy. After one too many disappointing and even violent experiences in a matter of days, Shae’s had enough. Rather than swear off the opposite sex until Mr. Right comes along, Shae teams up with a co-worker, Lu (LaLiberte), and they simply kill the men that try to hurt them – right along with any others who get in their way. However, as their new hobby transitions into a sick obsession, Shae realizes it’s more important to protect herself from Lu than from male attackers.

This little vicious gem premiered to pretty sour reviews at SXSW. THR sums it up writing, “Exploitation-friendly indie isn’t as psychologically probing or politically provocative as it hopes to be,” while Fangoria accuses it of “existing as a logline to reel in genre fans and hinging on a director’s name to excite the art houses.” Even though the writer goes on to say that the film will ultimately satisfy neither, as someone who’s both intrigued by the logline and curious to see what writer-director Austin Chick has to offer with his latest, I’m still eager enough to check it out for myself.

Danielle Panabaker Girls Against Boys ‘Girls Against Boys’ Trailer: Danielle Panabaker Rids the World of Bad Boyfriends

This new trailer makes the film look like a great deal of sick and twisted fun. It does a solid job introducing Shae and actually makes you feel bad for her when she runs into one too many bad boyfriends. From that point on, what’s not to like? We’ve got a pair of unlikely killers running around with guns and a samurai sword, murdering men for not being bring-home-to-mom material.

Girls Against Boys better not be a dud, for Panabaker’s sake. Piranha 3DD followed by another subpar gore fest? If that’s going to be the case, someone better find an agent that’ll put her talent to use, rather than feed her to the bloodthirsty horror hounds time and time again.

Girls Against Boys is set for a limited release on February 1st.

  1. Wow, this looks bad

  2. WHAT is Danielle Panabaker thinking taking roles like these!?

  3. Why am I scared this may inspire some girls…..

    • guilty conscience

    • Because some girls are nuts and will find SOMETHING wrong with a guy and just shoot him for it…when really there is something truly wrong with her

  4. The way it is set up, I’d guess the ending tries the twist that shows that the two girls are one in the same girl — each a different side of the same person ala fight club. Kinda has the same vibe in the trailor as Hard Candy.

    • I so agree with you on this theory! I thought the same thing at the end of the trailer when the girl looks at herself in the mirror.

    • I think you are spot on.

  5. Can’t take this seriously. And I’m not being sexist or anything, just looks sub-par and all about the violent kills.

  6. More sexist? impossible,pure garbage!!!

  7. I know who should do the soundtrack.

  8. I feel sorry for the guys that will have to sit through this crap with their girlfriends, I imagine this being a pretty awkward experience.

  9. This seems very sexist. Seriously. Girls KILLING guys just because they are not “the one”? Seriously. What if I told you some girls are bitches and ARE the reason s*** like this happens? What if I told you that girls can be just as much as a douche and a player as a guy? What if…SOME GUYS JUST DON’T LIKE GIRLS AT ALL! (They are gay). What going to kill them to for not being the perfect boyfriend to girls as well?

    Seriously. This seems very sexist. It gives women the thought. Hey. It’s okay to shoot my boyfriend in the face for cheating on me with a slut. Seriously. That’s messed up and if you are willing to shoot someone in the face cause they cheated on you…you DESERVE TO BE CHEATED ON YOU PSYCHO! Murder is not equal to cheating. You become worse than “the boys” who talks to the girls…You become a twisted mess. Not even gays will defend you. (And I am gay and I truly love female company as well as male and will treat a lady like the princess she deserves cause I would think with my head…not with what is in my pants.)

  10. wow, girls who get their hearts broken and do the completely wrong thing. just plain immoral.

  11. i feel like most of you didnt watch the trailer and are just upset its a film about women who arent grovelling for male attention. the girl was raped. she got justice her own way. there are plenty of films about men killing everyone trying to get justice for their wives or children that were hurt or killed. god forbid there be a movie about women doing the same thing.

    • Uh wrong. They go completely pyscho and are killing just about any and all men who get in the way. And in the films with men doing it they aren’t just killing anyone in the way. You are just a tryhard fail whiteknight kid.

  12. What a misleading title and poster.

    So the Girls have guns, knives, swords, etc, and they surprise attack the Guys and kill them because… The title of this movie should be: “Girl kills Boys”. or if you’re still trying to veer away from the obvious “Fight Club” bite then “Girls kill Boys”.

    Putting “against” in the title suggests “The Boys” have a fair indication of what’s transpiring, which by the trailer they clearly do not. Blindsiding someone is completely different. – I don’t like cheap gimmicks.

    Yes there are plenty of vengeance films out there, however they usually revolve around going after those responsible for the initial heinous act. I realize there are always exceptions to the rule, but when it doesn’t work, we call it out for what it is.

    This is lazy first semester film school “I’m trying to be shocking and clever”( but failed miserably ) nonsense.

  13. It’s like having a duo serial killer movie where two guys stalk and murder women and calling it “Boys against Girls”

    • And you KNOW if that happened people would throw a much bigger s*** fit. I mean what if there was a movie about two very nice nerdy guys who contantly got their hearts ripped out by bitchy “popular” chicks and then they kill them? I doubt it would last very long in the theater.

  14. this movie will be craptastic for sure, guys hide your girlfriends from this….tragedy.

  15. What was the song that played in the disco scene in the begging of the movie ? when that blonde girl kissed her friend in the bar and left while that redhead was looking at them …
