Movie Clip Wednesday - Best Woman Pretending To Be A Man Movie

That Movie Clip Wednesday Stripper Chair Finisher and Dog Tormentor, Boxer is too busy checking out potato farming in Idaho (she's all over the place this week). So the lovely Joanna Cake again is performing the hostess duties she has become so good at doing. This MCW Meme has everyone picking a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme while trying to keep the clip or clips to around 3 minutes long. She has decided this week's theme to be - Best Woman Pretending To Be A Man Movie.

I can only think of three movies that fit the category. Victor/Victoria - sort of a musical that I didn't like very much; Just One of the Guys - an 80s teen movie that had a good-looking lead (Joyce Hyser) that couldn't act; and Yentl - Barbra Streisand - 'nuff said. So at the risk of blogger jinx, I chose none of them.

My original thought was to use 1991's Robin Hood where Uma Thurmon's Maid Marian infiltrates the Band of Merry Men as a boy. Who'd of thought I couldn't find a clip of that - right? So I decided to take a bunch of verbal abuse and go with 2000s Charlie's Angels (remake). Yeah, I know it's a not-so-good T&A movie, but I thought in this scene, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore did a fairly good job dressing as guys. And Lucy Liu as a dominatrix was just gravy.

Girls will be boys over at Joanna's, so head on over and check it out, but leave your girly dresses at the door.

I had to do a double take to find Barrymore an' Diaz--then cackled!

An' the Asian Dominatrix? is THAT Troll's racist?

Happy MCW, BuzzK!

Good afternoon Buzz Kill,

I haven't seen the movie, but it's a great clip. Motivational riding crop. Every office should have one.

Hope you're having a pleasant clip day!

I haven't seen this either but appreciate your thought process. I'm not sure I could have come up with an entry! Maybe one day I'll be able to get back into MCW. Meanwhile, happy July to you, I seem to have missed it all.

I found this movie kind of charming. Good pick.

Buzz Kill said...

I liked the razor stubble they had going on. And Troll wishes he had a shot at Lucy Liu.

I sure would do anything she told me to.

I'm sure Joanna can come up with a grandmother theme or 2.

Best Movie Grandmother
Worst Diaper Scene

I use to watch the TV series where it was a little more "realistic" then the movies. Who am I kidding - I was staring at Farrah Fawcett. And I messed up because I could have used this for next week's theme.

Despite the razor stubble, the defined cheekbones are such a giveaway! Great clip, Buzzk!!
