Have you seen the movie yet? What did you think?
no and I don't plan on it. I loved the original, and from what I've seen of the new one it won't compare.
Ron's 5th graders Sunday were telling me they really liked it . . .
I don't plan to see it. Something about a man dressing as a woman really irks me. I wish they had found a chubby lady to play the part instead of giving it to John Travolta, a thin man, of all things.
Well, a man played that part in the original and if I'm not mistaken in the play.
It's not a trangendered, transexual, or drag queen character. There's no homosexual agenda in that character. The character is a normal married woman through and through. That's part of the comical element to her character....having a man dress up and play her.
I don't plan on seeing it... but I don't watch movies anyways... so I guess I am somewhat biased.
But I wouldn't support the notion of a man dressing as a woman, even to play a character that is a woman without any of the transy issues being diplayed. Something inherently wrong with such.
Didn't they do that in England during Shakespeare's day??
I am pretty sure you are right there... if I am not mistaken, there were literally none to maybe only a few women that even acted... Of course, I was told this in a public school, so I have no real idea.
Yep, women were prohibited from acting until the reign of Charles II. Men and boys played all the parts.
Yep, and white men used to darken their faces to play as black characters, too, before blacks were hired as actors, but I don't know when that was. It was before my time.
I think that John Travolta's part was initially written to be a part for a male to play the mother role.
Thanks for clearing that up for me. I've never seen the original but assumed by the previews that it was another transgender/drag queen plug. My mom is going to see it today, so I'm sure she'll tell me how she liked it.
What about the women who played Peter Pan.... What is the difference?
I don't plan on seeing it.. but not because of that reason...
I'm not a big movie fan...
Give me Andy Griffith reruns anyday...
Barney Fife dressed like a woman. He is transgendered.
:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
We need to nip this in the bud right now. Nip it! Nip it! Nip it!
Would you like to borrow my Gen-u-ine Barney Fife Bud Nipper?:laugh: :wavey:
"What we've got here is an absolute disrespect for the law!!"

I heard they had to use women to play Peter Pan because men were too heavy to "fly" on those ropes or whatever they used on the stage back then.
As for Barney Fife, on my worst hair day I'd look better than him in a dress. I'm quite ticked that I can't say that about John Travolta! :saint:
Can you imagine Don Knotts playing Peter Pan!!!
BTW, my wife had a big crush on John Travolta... and tells me that with my glasses off, I remind her of him.... but you are not going to catch me with a dress on....
uh....hmmm.... ABCGrad if you make any comment on fingernails... I will deny it!!!
