Movie Scene Sunday: Too Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar

9/20/2009 Posted by Mel Got Served No comments
Patrick Swayze passed away this week, which is a total bummer. While I wasn't a big Dirty Dancing fan like most girls, my personal favorite Swayze character will always be his amazing transformation into drag queen Vida Boheme in To Wong Foo Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar. Swayze was so convincing as a woman it blew my mind; like when I was a kid, I think I was shocked to discover that was indeed a man- he's that good. While there were so many movies I could've chosen to honor Swayze (WOLVERINES!), let's watch Swayze battle John Lequizamo's Chi Chi Rodriguez and then kick an abusive husband's ass.
