Verbal Bitchslaps All Around!

We saw the funniest movie the other night when we got together with our “girls” (the ones we met on the cruise) last week. K. brought out a movie called Girls Will Be Girls. I had seen the DVD in the TLA catalog and thought the cover was Elaine Stritch on some really good drugs.

K. pops in the DVD, and right off the bat the three stars and another male lead are on the DVD menu tossing bitchy remarks to each other telling you to select this option or that option (they asked you to choose the option they were standing over). The three leads are all drag queens: Evie, Coco Peru (“It buuuuuuurns!”), and Farla. Actually, there are no female actresses in this movie. Any females seen are men in drag.

Three Girls

It’s a trashy little tale about ambition and fading fame; think Valley of the Dolls meets All About Eve…done by drag queens. And we laughed our asses off! Here’s a taste of some of the one-liners:

Coco: Evie, have you ever had an abortion?

Evie: Coco, I’ve had more children pulled out of me than a burning orphanage.

and

Coco: Evie, what do think about having a dog in the house?

Evie: I’m sorry. Was I staring again?

And the witty repartee flies through the whole film. No [real] nudity but the male lead has a chest to die for. I put this film in league with Sordid Lives: You watch it when you need a trashy laugh or want to entertain a group of queens at a party. Needless to say, I just won a copy of it on eBay to add to our collection.

So if you want a belly laugh, give this unknown gem a view.
