There has been quite few movies with female impersonation by male actor, with good results (Tootsie) and not so good results (Whie Chicks). Lest see if this poll help us decide who did it best.
I vote for Eddie Murphy in Nutty Professor I&II (especially in the sequel) which he played Mama Anna Klump as best female impersonation. You could not tell it is Eddie Murphy under all that makeup, or Papa Cletus klump for that matter.
Not in particular order:
Some Like it Hot: Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon disguise themselves as members of an all female band to escape the mob.
Tootsie: Probably the mostt famous film of this genre as Dustin Hoffman dress up to land a TV show job.
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert: Adventures of a lavender bus, Priscilla, and its cross-dressing riders across the Australian desert.
Madea's Family Reunion: While planning her family reunion, Grandma Madea (Tyler Perry) must also deal with a runaway and her love-troubled nieces.
Mrs. Doubtfire: Respectable effort by Robin Williams as he disguises himself as an English nanny to care for his children during a divorce dispute.
White Chicks: Two disgraced FBI agents (Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans) go undercover in an effort to protect hotel heiresses from a kidnapping plot.
The Nutty Professor: Eddie Murphy showcase his acting ability with host of charactors, including Mama Klump as peace maker of the family.
The Bird Cage: Nathan Lane playing Val's mother when inlaws pay a visit.
To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar: John Leguizamo, Wesley Snipes and Patrick Swayze starred as three drag queens traveling across the country.
Big Momma's House: This was a funny movie. But Martin Lawrence need a better makeup artist.
Smoke... I love and admire you man for keeping this forum going and particularly with your polls... However... this one is sooooo (fill in the blank) as to make my nethers shrivel. Urrrgh, either the women are repulsive or the movies themselves are so bad as to me repulsive... The only one of hte bunch where the women are attractive AND the film is viable is "Some Like it Hot". The rest give me a headache.
Thanks again for trying though.... (urrrgh... oooogh... keflumph... Worf passes out on the floor).
PS on further review "To Wong Fu" and "Priscilla" were both marvelous... I'm actually going to change my vot to Priscilla! Forget what I wrote before... ihis is one interesting poll.

LOL, lets just say that I might be runnng out of good ideas for poll subject
I was sure Tootsie might be the big vote getter, but as of now looks like Priscilla, The Klumps and Some Like it Hot are in a dead heat.
