To preface this post, I've wanted to see this movie for ages, like ever since I fell deeply in love with Tom Jones and his "She's a Lady" song.
I found out that it was featured on this movie with the super long title, To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar. Basically, it features Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, and John Leguizamo as drag queens. And basically, they change everyone's live they meet.
It was a little hard to get past Swayze in a dress. But he was just so CLASSY. Seriously, I would have worn any one of Swayze outfits.
I found out that Swayze and Snipes were up for the Academy awards for best actor and best supporting actor. Dudes, they totally should have gotten it. You try acting wearing high heels and well tailored dresses.
Of course, it can't be Swayze night without another Swayze film. And that is the ultimate classic, Dirty Dancing.
Mmmmmhmm, folks, Johnny Castle. The sis and I have a lot of fun imagining the perfect casting of the ultimate remake. You know it's going to happen eventually.
This is what we think so far:
Baby: Jennifer Lawerence (seriously, she is basically perfect for every role.)
Johnny Castle: Tatum Channing
Baby's father: Mark Harmon
Baby's mother: Jennifer Grey (it would be perfect if she did a cameo as the mother)
uhhhh...that is about as far as we got. But it would be perfect if Hollywood would just listen to us!
Apparently, I need to watch Ghost, another Swayze classic. It's too bad he went so young and such a hard way to go. Very talented actor.
