Girls Will Be Girls


Girls Will Be Girls Information

Girls Will Be Girls is a 2003 film directed by Richard Day.

The film spoofs several films with Hollywood as a subject, including Sunset Boulevard, All About Eve, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Mommie Dearest and Valley of the Dolls.

All three of the main characters"?Evie, Coco and Varla"?have existed "on their own" for years prior to the movie. The characters are alter egos of the actors, who created these characters and performed under their drag alter egos for several years. The movie places all three in a narrative situation together.

Plot

Evie Harris (Jack Plotnick) is a washed-up, alcoholic, aging C-List actress (star of kinetoscope, stage, television, and film in such works as the TV special "Christmas Evie," vaudeville-era appearances promoting 'Dr. Vim's Miracle Elixir,' "Court TV: Celebrities Who Kill," Tabitha (TV series) and the sad '70s disaster epic Asteroid [tagline: 'Earth Might Get Crushed!']). She lives in a tackily out-of-style bungalow with Coco (Clinton Leupp), a homely, lonely, doormat of a spinster who carries a torch for the handsome young doctor who performed her abortion years ago.

Evie's life is turned upside-down by the arrival of a new roommate, Varla Simonds (Jeffery Roberson), the voracious, starry-eyed daughter of Evie's rival, late actress Marla Simonds (whose claims to fame included playing Chesty on "Fill Her Up," the short-lived but widely acclaimed spinoff of "C.P.O. Sharkey," and almost being cast as the lead in "Asteroid" before Evie captured that "breakout" role). Evie acts very competitive around Varla, especially as she recognizes the growing chemistry between the young up-and-comer and her sweet, handsome and microscopically endowed son and "ambulance chasing" lawyer, Stevie (Ron Mathews). When Varla snags a plum starring role in commercials for "Bizzy Gal dinners," tensions and jealousies amongst the three women reach a boiling point and treachery soon rears its ugly head.
