It's Pat Movie Boy Or Girl !!BETTER!!



Sweeney has said, "I'd been an accountant for like five years, and there was one person I worked with in particular who had a lot of mannerisms like Pat. This person sort of drooled and had the kind of body language of Pat. I started trying to do him. I was testing it out on my friends and they were just like, 'Yeah, it's good, but it doesn't seem like a guy that much.' Like I couldn't quite pull off being in drag convincingly enough. So then I thought, maybe that's the joke. I'll just have one joke in here about how we don't know if that's a man or a woman just to sort of cover up for my lack of ability to really play a guy convincingly."[3]




It's Pat Movie Boy Or Girl



"Pat" debuted on December 1, 1990 (Season 16, Episode 7), with John Goodman hosting. In the sketch, Bill (Kevin Nealon) is thanking a friend over the phone for his new job, then asks whether Bill's supervisor is a man or a woman. Before he gets an answer, he has to hang up when Pat enters. Bill asks, "Do you have a boyf... girl... Are you married?" Pat explains that Pat's planned marriage to Chris fell through, because Chris got involved with Terry. Next Bill says he's trying to decide what to watch tonight: either a Giants-49ers game, or Murphy Brown. Pat states an inability to help on that matter, having rented a film: Tootsie. Bill's last effort, when they agree to go to lunch together, is to learn whether Pat has a wallet or a purse; Pat wears a fanny pack.[4]


Aired November 16, 1991 (Season 17, Episode 6). Linda Hamilton was the host in this episode, in which Pat decides to join a gym. Gym employee Andrea (Hamilton) cannot figure out their sex, so, filling in the application form, she asks for "age? ... height? ... sex?" and looks up hopefully. Pat says, "'Yes, please!' [stuttery laugh] That's my little joke." When they are asked for a middle name, the eager audience then finds out that the middle name is "O'Neill," again continuing the joke. (Pat never uses the middle name, as it is "embarrassing".) Andrea keeps trying: "Would you say that you're in good health? Do you have regular periods..." When Pat stares at her, Andrea hurriedly finishes, "... of activity?" Andrea tries again: "What kind of body are you going for? I mean, do you want a muscular V-shape?" (That would suggest Pat is male.) "Or something a little more curvy?" They reply, "Well, I just saw the movie Return to the Blue Lagoon. I'd sure like a body like that!" Andrea does not know whether they are referring to Milla Jovovich or Brian Krause. Andrea and fellow gym employee Ron (Tim Meadows) ask Pat which of them they would be more attracted to; Pat objects to the question; they suggest that Pat should go to the locker room. Just as the audience is about to see whether they enter either the men's or the women's, Kevin Nealon as a TV news anchor on Weekend Update interrupts with a Special Report alert. Upon returning to the Pat sketch, Andrea and Ron are laughing, with Andrea saying, "I guess our question is finally answered!", but only the studio audience might have seen which door Pat entered; the television viewer is still in the dark.


Julia Sweeney wrote on her Pat website, "I wrote It's Pat with Jim Emerson and Steve Hibbert. We had a great time writing and a lot of fun making the film. The movie didn't do well at the box office, not by a long shot. In fact, It's Pat became a popular example of a film so despised that it got a zero percent Rotten Tomatoes rating! I guess in that way, it's sort of a badge of honor.But I can't help it, I love this film. It has so many people in it who I love, and loved. Many are dead: Charlie Rocket, who played Kyle, and Julie Hayden who played his wife (who died of cancer a couple of years after the film premiered,) my dad who played the priest who married us, and my brother Mike who had one line at the wedding shower of Pat and Chris. And there are so many good friends in the film too: Kathy Griffin and Dave Foley and Kathy Najimy and Tim Stack and Tim Meadows. And the band Ween! We had so much fun together."[19]


But I was so hell bent on being this annoying character, because that's fun to play. I pushed that too much and it got conflated with androgyny, which it shouldn't have. And then by the time we doing the movie, yeah, a lot of the jokes were how Pat was gross and weird and androgynous. So I wish I could do it over. But of course, I can't.


Alito said Karlan's argument collapses there, as she was admitting sexual orientation isn't the same thing as sex. Karlan said of course it's not, but sexual orientation discrimination is a subset of sex discrimination. "In the case where the person knows the sex of the person that they are firing or refusing to hire and knows the sex of the people to whom that person is attracted, that is sex discrimination, pure and simple," she said.


It's not explicitly asexual, but it centres around androgyny, as you can never tell whether 'pat' is male or female, and pat and pat's girl/boy friend in the film 'chris' do give off an asexual sterotype vibe.though there are hints at them not being outright asexual, and they do fall in love...it's still an awesome genderscrewing film, and recommend all asexuals see it.. I also recommend everyone see it..


Lol! I loved that movie, it was a little corny but insanely amusing and funny. Pat was always a strange yet hilarious character. There aren't enough androgynous characters out there. More I say, we need more. Chris and Pat were great in that movie, kept you guessing and makes you think how much people depend on gender stereotypes to relate to people. XD


I like the movie, I secretly love just about any SNL movie made from a reoccurring character, except for Superstar, Molly Shannon has no talent. My only problem is when I tell my friends that I like androgyny; they assume things like Pat, which I feel is a totally different type of androgyny. You can read my post about it if you want. =9046


On the 25th anniversary TV special for "Saturday Night Live," comedian Chris Rock astutely observed that, "Some of the worst movies ever made were made by people in this room." To an ignoble pantheon of vaguely amusing skits stretched into painful, full-length features like "A Night at the Roxbury," "It's Pat," and "The Coneheads," Rock can now add another: "Superstar."


Based on the panty-flashing, socially awkward and sexually overripe Catholic schoolgirl character created by longtime SNLer Molly Shannon, "Superstar" may not be the most unnecessary movie of the year, but it's got to rank right up there. The pratfall-heavy adventures of Mary Katherine Gallagher are a favorite on the show, but are they really rich enough for a whole movie? And if they can't capture even a flicker of amused appreciation from the likes of me -- a double-named, Irish Catholic parochial-school survivor -- I can't help wondering exactly who will be entertained.


Mary Katherine, taken in small doses and on the small screen, isn't such a bad egg. She's pretty odd, to be sure, an unworldly little dweeb whose inevitable mishaps revolve largely around her show business aspirations and her barely contained libido. As played by Shannon, she's a minor volcano of misdirected energy, one of the all too few unabashedly physical comic female characters around. The woeful dearth of big, broad comedy centered on women is unfortunate. You'd think that by now there'd be room at the top for a $20-million-a-picture, XX-chromosomed version of Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler or Mike Meyers. Shannon does her best to gamely prove that women can fall on their faces and talk out of their body parts, too, but she doesn't have the accompanying charisma or charm to carry the movie. And she sure as hell doesn't have the material. Although tolerable when sandwiched between a "Weekend Update" and a musical performance by Beck, Mary Katherine is mind-numbingly interminable on the big screen.


What might, in another movie, be called the plot in "Superstar" centers on Mary Katherine's quest to find "someone to make out with and tongue kiss" -- a dream she believes will be better served if she can turn herself into a glamorous superstar. Or, as she endlessly refers to it, a "soopa stah." Her potential make-out material arrives in the form of Sky Corrigan (Will Ferrell), St. Monica's resident stud and best male dancer. The opportunity for soopa stahdom? The school's "Let's Fight VD" talent show. If she can just make a big enough splash in the contest, Mary believes, Sky will surely want to kiss her the way boys kiss girls in all those made-for-TV movies that she watches as "rewind girl" at the local video shop. First, however, she must overcome a series of seemingly impossible obstacles: her grandmother's refusal to let her try out for the show; Sky's bitchy, sabotaging girlfriend Evian (Elaine Hendrix); and not least of all her own near-crippling spazziness. But the Lord has a special affinity for dorky girls who've seen "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble" one too many times -- we know because He appears throughout the film to affirm this -- and eventually Mary finds herself in the spotlight and ready to pucker up to something other than an accommodatingly helpless campus tree.


Writer Steven Wayne Koren and director Bruce McCulloch (whom one may prefer to remember as a "Kids in the Hall" veteran) have managed to create a movie so stuffed with setup, it's really quite an achievement that there are almost no punchlines. Instead, we have Mary falling into piles of chairs, Mary whomping a cheerleader in the boobs, Mary getting so carried away in the confessional that she thrashes the doors right off. Each incident is followed by a twitchy, Rain Man-ish string of "Sorry sorry sorry sorry." She's meant to be an appealing everynerd, the screw-up with big dreams who exists inside all of us. But when the viewer is subjected to scene after scene of Mary Katherine sniffing her own armpit aroma, desperately yanking her blouse open for a horrified priest and making the sign of the cross as if she were pushing invisible buttons on her body, it's hard to disagree with her principal's assessment that the girl needs a serious dose of "prayer and Ritalin." Wayne and Garth were deeply sheltered weirdos with a dream of becoming entertainers too, but somehow they never came off as total sociopaths. 041b061a72
