Watch: Cross-Dressing, Line Dancing & Lizzy Caplan In 'Queens Of Country' Trailer

Lizzy Caplan wasn’t kidding when earlier this year she told us that the forthcoming indie comedy, “Queens of Country,” was “a super strange, really funny movie.” The trailer that has landed certainly confirms the “strange” part, but as for the “funny,” we’ll let you decide.

“Queens of Country” finds Caplan playing a young woman obsessed with the titular singers, the likes of Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette. When she discovers an iPod full of songs by those artists, she becomes intent on tracking down its owner, convinced that it’ll belong to her true love. Her boyfriend, played by Ron Livingston, is obviously not too pleased with her quest and hires a geek, played by an almost unrecognizable Tool frontman James Maynard Keenan, to pose as the owner, retrieve the iPod and then send Caplan on her way. And oh yeah, there is a cross-dressing Joe Lo Truglio in there as well. As you might guess, the comedy in this is quite broad and certainly odd, and while we like everyone involved, this one misses quite a bit more than it ever hits.

The film is directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke, who were behind the documentaries “The Heart Is a Drum Machine” and “Blood Into Wine” (the latter about Keenan’s wine-making business), and “Queens of Country” will boast a score written by Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock. The film is currently in post-production and will hit theaters in 2012. [via The Film Stage]

Lizzy Caplan looks gorgeous in this film. Cannot wait! Lizzy is breaking big right now and is on track to be the next big thing!


Amen to that, Sasquatch. I wondered the same thing about Mr. Jagernauth’s review of a trailer to a movie he hasn’t even seen yet. Here is a direct quote from this article:

“this one misses quite a bit more than it ever hits”

What in the world is the writer talking about? The trailer? Seems like a hatchet job to me. Queens of Country has a fantastic cast and looks pretty awesome, I must say.


Why do you feel the need to impose your poor judgement on every single trailer that comes out? Let the clips speak for themselves and let us judge for ourselves.


I love her. Caplan needs to become the next big thing.
