Norris's performance will change the way we think about acting
21 November 2008 | by Mike_NogaSee all my reviews

Pacino, DeNiro, Olivier, Shattner, these are the gods of today's Acting Pantheon. To that august list one may now add the name....NORRIS!!! Chuck blows away all previous concepts of what it means to be an actor. Seriously I never felt as "inside" another character as I have for Chuck's character, Junior Detective Tiffany Neversmile.

Tiffany, as portrayed by Mr. Norris, is a high school teen-aged Goth girl with an interest in criminal justice and who is studying a Mail-Order course in circumcison in order to become the world's first Mail-order mohel, and a goil mohel at that .She gets involved in the typical teen-age diamond smuggling scenario, and through her partnership with Detective Inspector/Asst. Bowling Coach Shlomoe "The Tranny Granny" Running Bear, not only brings the smugglers to justice, but also triumphs over her own pain, depression and fashion shortcomings.

To make it easy for you, this film is a sort of synthesis of films like Mean Girls, The Hot Chick, Ghost World and Requiem for a Dream, with an added liberal dose of martial arts, transvestitism, Deth Metal and marionettes. The soundtrack and score are a wonderful collaboration between Faith Hill and Goblin.

But it's Norris' performance as high-school Goth girl Tiffany Neversmile that elevates this far above the level of the usual teen-age melodrama. His legs, skinny, bird-like and thankfully shaven, promote the illusion that Chuck Norris is a little girl. Chuck keeps the beard for the role and I think it only helps, since Norris as a woman possesses an unearthly beauty and the whiskers help to ground it. If you've ever wanted to see Chuck Norris in a vinyl Gothic mini-dress, this film is for you.

The Academy shouldn't just give Mr. Norris a retro-Oscar for his work in this movie; they should shave him, grind off his privates and cover him in gold plating.
