Overview

The confessional, behind-the-scenes showbiz melodrama goes under the knife -- so to speak -- in this drag comedy. Girls Will Be Girls casts three male performers in the roles of Evie Harris (Jack Plotnick), a has-been starlet of the '70s who has since gone to seed in her decaying Hollywood home; her best friend and domestic servant, Coco (Clinton Leupp); and Varla (Jeffrey Roberson), the daughter of a deceased peer
ival of Evie's who shows up to rent out a room in her home. The tension among the trio of women escalates as Evie prepares for a pull-out-all-the-stops television special commemorating her past career glories, which include sundry disaster movies and TV variety shows. What Evie doesn't know is that the naïve-seeming Varla has a debt to settle for her deceased mom, and will stop at nothing to seek vengeance. All three lead actors developed their characters in stage shows and cabaret acts; writer/director Richard Day wrote for such television shows as Ellen and The Larry Sanders Show before helming this film, his debut. After its 2003 Sundance premiere, Girls Will Be Girls was acquired by IFC Films for a theatrical release.

My friend owned this and showed it to me and immediately I was hooked. The dialogue is brilliant ('I've had more children pulled from me than a burning orphanage'), the idea is original, and you can watch it over and over and always catch something new and laugh-out-loud hilarious (in the background of a party one guy calls out 'Hey, there's a party over at Charro's'). My personal favorite character is Evie Harris ('ASTROPHYSICIST!'), and those who indulge in these sorts of films may recognize Coco, who made an appearance in 'Trick'. The roles were so convincing, you can not really even believe that they are men at all -and the interactive menus at the beginning are just enough to hook someone who has never seen the movie.

This movie contains the single funniest line ever to be uttered in the history of film. And every other line in the movie is hysterical too. This is one of those films that's good to use as a litmus test to find out whether or not someone is cool. Just sit them down and watch their reactions. If they're shocked and offended, this person should be dismissed from your life. If they're laughing with delight, then that person is a keeper!

You'll want to get two copies of this DVD: One to keep and one to give to a friend.
