first period movie

I probably blogged about this when the trailer first came out

I finally got around the renting it for $2 on youtube.  I gotta say it wasn't half bad.  Campy, very B-movie, but that's no surprise from the trailer.  Jokes were pretty good, the only annoying part ws her catch phrase used OVER and OVER "totally rocking superstar extraordinaire, you're welcome".  The two main "girl" characters are obviously dudes.. The one actor is like 30 playing a 16 year old.  the other actor has done so few films he doesn't even have his bio listed but he looks like he could easily be mid 30's.  The part I liked the most about the film is probably the fact that they imply they are actually women (homely women), but women.. Even though they are clearly played by guys.  As I let my mind wander, I started to change the plot as if these were 2 transgender girls that were passing 100%.  I wonder if they didn't enhance the voices though, they sound too good for non-transitioning guys most of the time.  It almost sounds as if they sped them up a little.  Also there are some scenes (especially at night when they're in the car) where you can tell they did a bad job of foundation, but during the day they did a good job.. they captured the 80's look well.

Interesting fact: The actress that plays the art teacher was also the one that played simone (the waitress in pee-wee's big adventure) from 30 years before.  It must have to do with the fact that cassandra peterson was also in that movie.
