Movie Info

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/rival of Evie's who shows up to rent out a room in her home.

An often hilarious, always surprising 79-minute burlesque.

While Day doesn't succeed in making us empathize with anyone on screen, he makes his characters definitely watchable and his dialogue crackles.

An unprecedented exercise in derangement.

Humor that takes as its apparent premise the assumption that all women are catty, sexually voracious, weight-obsessed whores ... is more than anyone in this day and age, even in the context of a cartoonish farce, should be expected to take.

Girls Will Be Girls is gross-out camp, much like the movies of John Waters.

There are more belly laughs here than belly flops.

Girls Will Be Girls is every bit as dull and offensive as it is frequently hysterical.

The laughs in Girls Will Be Girls are cheap laughs, but when you assemble this many of them in one place, they're worth a lot.

St. Paul Pioneer Press explosion of bad taste swallowed, and occasionally spit back out, over and over again, culminating in fashionable she/he cat fights by the pool.

A relentlessly mean picture that will tickle those tired of sweet comedies whether in drag or plainclothes.

Vile characters plus a bad script doesn't add up to girls just having fun - it's more like you've been drugged and raped without the fun part.

Crass and dumb.

There is a level of glee in the film's silliness that dependably entertains.

Even the acerbic wit slowly eats away at the story line until, at the end of the 82 minutes, there is little left but an acid-washed Lifetime movie.
