    Red face Crossdressing in Movies

    Hi girls,

    There are loads of movies about that feature men in situations where they have to crossdress, or are transsexuals / crossdressers by choice. I was wondering if you could share your favourites, and in turn, let others know of some that they may have missed!


    To get things started, here are my top 10 films featuring crossdressers (but not necessarily with crossdressing as the main theme).

    1. Kinky Boots
    2. Tootsie
    3. The Rocky Horror Show
    4. Billy Elliot
    5. Mrs Doubtfire
    6. Some Like It Hot
    7. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
    8. Sorority Boys
    9. Boat Trip
    10. To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar

    Here are some additional films:

    TransAmerica, Breakfast On Pluto, The Bird Cage, the Producers, White Chicks, Nuns On The Run, Big Momma's House 1 & 2, Juwanna Mann, Mixed Nuts, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Crying Game, Junior, Tango and Cash, Silence of the Lambs,The Dress Code, The Hot Chick, Anger Management, Willow, Police Academy, Mr Nanny, and Ernest Goes To Jail. (Phew!)

    Hugs,

    Kate xxx

    I guess you can count "Girls Will be Girls", but that was really drag queens playing GGs. Crossdressing wasn't really an element of the movie.

    Ditto on Crying Game

    Crying Game was a moving, tragic picture. Just got home from seeing "Breakfast on Pluto," also done by Neil Jordan. The crossdressing star was totally believable, never going over the top in his female impersonation. You were comfortable with him as a female. Despite heavy violence in the movie, it failed to convey the seriousness of the Irish "troubles" but the young lady was a joy to see.

    Hi Kate

    First of all, let me welcome you to our family, I'm so glad you're here. Same goes to you Cyle Elise, welcome, and I love your name, it's so unique and I love things that are unique.

    As far as movies go, you got it covered pretty well, though there are a few that you overlooked. I guess these weren't movies per se, but they were always hilarious, and they featured men in dresses quite often.

    The Three Stooges. I don't think there's to much that can crack me up more than seeing Curly in a dress, especially when he pretended to be an opera singer once.

    Bugs Bunny. Remember when Bugs dressed up and became Lady Bugs? Not only did he look good in a dress, but I can't think of anyone who wore lipstick better than Lady Bugs. Why the folks at Revlon or Covergirl haven't signed Lady Bugs to be their spokesperson yet is beyond me.

    Not a movie but a television show, Monty Python's Flying Circus. I realize it was all satire and that they always looked awful on purpose, it's just that I'm a big fan and I saw an oppurtunity to throw in a shameless plug. Sorry.

    Being a pickypants, Mrs. Doubtfire, Tootsie, and Some Like It Hot didn't feature crossdressers.

    The characters were guys dressed that way as a disguise (but it was used as a comic device and not intended in any way to be regarded as crossdressing.)

    Great films, though!

    A couple more-- crossdressers or not-- The World According to Garp, Ma Vie en Rose, Stage Beauty, Just Like a Woman, I Was a Male War Bride, Beautiful Boxer, Victor/Victoria, the new version of The Longest Yard, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, and... I'm sure there are more.

    They add up, don't they!?

    Some Like it Hot is one of my all-time favs.

    I also liked To Wong Foo, even if it was a bit flawed, because the lead actors did such a great job and treated their characters with respect.

    The British TV hit "Little Britain" features both actors as crossdressers and male actors playing women.

    Little Britain is fantastic! Another British TV comedy from the 90's called "Bottom" featured an episode (in series 3) where Adrian Edmonson dressed up as Rik Mayall's wife in order to stay at a hotel for free. There are also a lot of instances in "Black Adder" where men dressed as women.

    There was a movie called "Connie & Carla" about two girls who were running from a hitman and ended up in L.A.
    They were from Chicargo, (i think) doing caberet at an airport departure lounge, and ended up by chance getting a gig at a local cd'ers bar in L.A, they had to hide that they were women and were actually drag kings, but playing drag queens.

    Quite funny movie, IMO

    As mentioned earlier a lot of the movies cited actually refer to men in disguise rather than CDing per se.

    The best strictly CD movie that I have seen and I managed to get a copy of it is 'Just Like a Woman'. Susandrea referred to it in her post.

    I think it should be manadatory viewing for all CDers and wannabees. It portrays many of the trials and tribulations of a CD as well as many of the joys of eventual acceptance by loved ones and friends. It would have to rate five stars.

    Yes, "Just Like A Woman" is probably the best film dealing with a "real" crossdresser and not someone dressing as a disguise. Highly recommended!

    By the way, it was only released on VHS in the US and it has gotten quite epensivie on Amazon. I was able to get it on DVD from eBay.

    Susandrea already mentioned "I Was a Male War Bride" with Cary Grant. That is one of my favorites. Didn't Bob Hope and Bing Crosby crossdress in one of the "Road Shows"?

    As for tv series, Benny Hill was often CDing and looked quite good in some of those outfits. Some of his co-stars also dressed up.

    Bugs Bunny also did a good impression of a female tasmanian devil.

    My favorite film would be Showtime's 'Soldier's Girl'. Lee Pace played real life TS Calpernia Adams. Very believable performance and I highly recommend the film.

    I agree! Bugsy is my favorite crossdresser of all time. I think my favorite one is when he was on the riverboat dressed like a southern belle.

    Is it a CoIncindence

    It is kind of strange that two of the most well made, serious, with the most beleivable presentations as women are movies having to do with Ireland and the troubles there, Breakfast on Pluto, and The Crying Game. Would anyone have any idea why this is. Are there lots of crossdressers in Ireland?
    Hugs, Christine
