118: It's really easy to be a prude when you're not attracted to him, isn't it? | But I'm a Cheerleader (1999)

Episode Summary

"Denial is a normal part of the healing process that we'll explore at True Directions."

Episode Notes

Another underrated 90s gem! I remember seeing this film ages ago and watching it again now was even better. Talk about a hilarious story with a great theme and an incredible cast! Me and Mikey talked about our love of Clea Duvall and Natasha Lyonne and how they are responsible for some of the most groundbreaking films of the era. 

We get into the story of how Natasha was cast as Megan, the fashion and interiors that are to die for, and why Rupaul playing a  counselor is pure CAMP.

Off-topic rants include: why we're stoked for 'Nope', dream cast of a tv version, and the movie landscape of 1999.

Graham and Megan forever!
