where good deeds are rewarded with apples & the bad with lemons

‘The Thank You Girls’ is back in town

Screening today, December 5, 2012, Wednesday, at GMall Cinema 5 is one of the funniest movies I have seen- The Thank You Girls.

It’s made in Davao by a talented Dabawenyo, Charliebebs Gohetia. It reminds of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

Here’s what the movie is all about…..

Tired of losing all the beauty competitions in their hometown of Davao City, six dysfunctional gay beauty pageant veterans travel north to Cagayan de Oro with a single mission: to conquer the grandest competition of beauty and brains in the whole province. They figure the small town gays will never stand a chance against the big city boys like them. 

As they travel through the breathtaking landscape and cultural vignettes of rural Mindanao, each character struggles to win just a single title, while also battling their own inner demons. 

Blinded by their belief in the power of the so-called beauty, they will have to prove themselves that whether on or off stage, beauty doesn’t come in packages wrapped in foundation, mascara, eyeliners and witty beauty pageant answers. THeir travels will bring them back to basics of themselves and each other. And what they will discover about themselves will teach them that being a run-away loser is not ugly after all.
