In the midst of the highly anticipated release of GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS 2 in the near future, why not talk about the 2003 original film which I happened to discover about two years ago while surfing channels. You see, in Canada, our LOGO TV is called OUT TV. It also features many gay theme movies (duh!) with almost no commercial breaks (yes!). So I was more than thrilled to finally catch this much-talked about film which, according to many, was very funny in an over the top way. I’ve always been a big fan of those sub-genre films and GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS definitely looked to be right up my alley.
I can’t count the time I found myself laughing while witnessing the hectic goings on of our crazy ladies. Any scene they’re in is a treasure in itself ("Astro-phy-si-cist!", anyone?). And that’s saying a lot since GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS is what you call a no (big) name movie with a minuscule budget. But director Richard Day succeeds in impressing us in every way. Everything he touches looks slick. Not to mention the mega talents of his protagonists who, should I say, are far from being strangers in the gay community. Just in my strange little world; until about two years ago, like I mentioned. Now, I feel the need to know what they’re up to, like their involvement in the GIRLS WILL BE GIRLS sequel (written and directed by Day again) which, suffice to say, I can’t wait to see.
