Will Ryan Reynolds’ Drag Role Be Offensive? Hot? Both?

When it comes to famous men dressing in drag for the cinema, there are instances that we know we’ll enjoy for proper artistic reasons, like Jude Law playing dress-up in Rage (a Fashion Week murder “tragicomedy” where Law plays a “celebrity supermodel”), and instances we’ll enjoy purely for their camp value, like Ryan Reynolds’ new “dude-in-drag romantic comedy, with Reynolds playing a jilted lover who must disguise himself as a woman and befriend his ex in order to win her back.” Apparently there was a bidding war over this shlock.

It will probably be saturated with stereotypes and filled with queerphobic jokes, but we’d never miss a chance to see Reynolds’ calves in a pair of five-inch pumps.
