T.K. Carter's impeccable comic timing and Gabrielle Beaumont's snappy direction make this movie a joy to watch.
30 June 2003 | by MorbidMorganSee all my reviews

One for 80's nostalgists, ' He's My Girl ' is terrific fun, a screwball comedy with colourful characters and a great rock soundtrack. T.K. Carter is a blast as Reggie, the manager of would-be rock star Bryan Peters ( David Hallyday ), who dons drag to accompany his client on a prize-winning trip to Los Angeles, courtesy of a popular music TV show. As butch femme Regina, Reggie hopes to make Bryan's dream of stardom come true - but he hadn't counted on falling in love or the lecherous advances of the TV station manager!

Carter's impeccable comic timing and Gabrielle Beaumont's snappy direction make the movie a joy to watch. Musician Hallyday gets to belt out a few cool rock tracks and even Jennifer Tilly pops up in an early role as Bryan's sculptress girlfriend.
