"Work It" review by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays, 8:30/7:30C on ABC

Everyone seems to be saying that this is the worst show of the season. They could be right, at least among non-reality shows.  First of all, there was a very similar show in the early 80's called "Bosom Buddies" starring Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari. It was pretty funny and much better than this.

The premise of this show is flawed. The main star of the show, Ben Koldyke (Lee), is too big and broad-shouldered to be a woman in any stretch of the imagination. It's supposed to be funny that such a big guy is a woman and wearing high heels, I guess, but no tall woman is going to wear heels, anyway.  If I saw him in real life, I'd think it was a guy in drag, even without seeing his very-masculine face. The other guy, Amaury Nolasco (Angel) is shorter and more lithe, so he's at least a little more convincing as a woman. Hanks and Scolari were not very convincing women, either, but neither of them looked like a football player like Koldyke does.

The guys dress up as women because some dumb friend of theirs tells them that only men are in a recession and women are getting all the jobs. That is simply not true, and it's very sexist as well. The whole show is very sexist. It's filled with many stereotypes about men and women. Most of the shows would have been pretty lame in the 70's, let alone now.

If you did a drinking game with this show, and had a shot every time there was a stereotype, you'd be drunk after 12 minutes.  The actors do their best, but this show is horrible and should be put out of our misery.
