      Well Ladies, I finally gt to see Transamerica, and although a lil differnt than I thought it would be, it was very good, I think Felicity Huffman did a wonderfull job. A few things a lil un realistic in the movie, but hey that is what movies are for. Overall I think it was a very good movie. Was a bit.. hmm untill 1/3 the way thrugh, but.. then lot better. I'll watch it again ! ( And buy the DVD LOL )

      Good stuff!

      I watched this movie last night and have to agree that Felicity Huffman was excellent in it. She should have taken the Oscar for it. She was very convincing in her role of a transexual woman. This film is definately worth seeing.

      Hugs & kisses,

      I just saw transamerica - i thought it was very entertaining in showing the trials and trubulations of every day life of a TS (although no film can show the whole spectrum). from my perspective, and i am sure many can relate, that in being TS it is the unknown future ahead which hold many a uncertain thought. films like this help fill in the picture and is a real boost. let see more like this!!!

      I've seen Transamerica three times. On the whole, it's heart is in the right place and Felicity does a good job. There is the usual mistakes, like Bree is days away from surgery and hasn't changed her name legally yet, the whole scene in Texas with Callie seemed to ring false to me and then there was the wizzing scene...

      But what bothers me is a larger issue with these movies. Recently, I was finally able to see a rather tough to get movie, Different For Girls. The similarities between these two movies really struck me in a very specific way.

      Both the lead actor in Different For Girls and Felicity both were really not too passable, in fact Felicity was definitely clunky. The lead in DFG supposedly had a very nice job, but sported a giant male chin and had a lot of brow bossing. I thought if she had that good of a job, she would have gotten FFS years before.

      Do we have to be unpassable or pathetic in some way for the general public to sympathize with us? Do we have to be so unattractive that no one could fall for us unless it was written that way? Felicity's Bree supposedly had FFS. I would sue the quack who do that to me, if I were her. If she had FFSshe would look like......Felicity Huffman!! It smells like fear to me. More men (mostly) who are worried about accidently taking one of us home.

      I wrote a review of this film a long time back. I thought it was great, and did a good job, considering it was Hollywood. To reiterate something I said back then, there was one part I definitely did not believe. When Bree was at the TG party, she made a comment about a woman not being able to pass in a dark alley. Her friend, the party hostess, said that woman was in fact a GG. Bree did not know what a GG was.

      I do not believe that a pre-op MTF TS, a week away from SRS, would not know what a GG is! I even pointed that out to my mother.

      I have the movie on DVD. I love it.
