Storyline

A feminist rethink of Washington Irving's classic tale. Rip's a chauvinistic rock & roller who marries the talented Vanna, whose music career goes by the wayside when they marry. Harried and in need of some peace, she finds The Women of Thunder Mountain, who give her a potion designed to help her annoying hubby (Tom Arnold as Rip Winkle) change his rigid and male piggy ways. Instead, he goes for a long snooze. When he wakes up 20 years later, he finds that not only are his clothes out of style, but his ideas about men & women's roles are too. The president is a woman, Vanna owns her own business, and his now-grown son is a stay-at-home-dad. A rock & roll take on this classic tale, with Edgar Winter supplying the singing and the song for Tom Arnold's Rip, and a cadre of famous feminists and ground-breaking women supplying the voices for the Women of Thunder Mountain. Written by Gael MacGregor
