"A Very Sordid Wedding"

New movie, a sequel of sorts to "Sordid Lives." Coming out in a couple of weeks.

[quote]It's 2015, seventeen years after Peggy tripped over G.W.'s wooden legs and died in Sordid Lives, and life has moved into the present for the residents of Winters, Texas. Sissy Hickey (Dale Dickey) is reading the Bible, cover to cover, trying to make some kind of sense out of what it really says about gay people. Her niece Latrelle Williamson (Bonnie Bedelia) has divorced her husband Wilson (Michael MacRae) who has taken up with a hot young gold digger (Katherine Bailess). Latrelle's now out and proud gay son Ty (Kirk Geiger) is on his way back to town with his black man (T. Ashanti Mozelle) and news of their own. Her sister LaVonda (Ann Walker) is still cussin' and drankin' and is being blackmailed to sit with the sick and afflicted. LaVonda's best friend Noleta (Caroline Rhea) meets a hot younger man (Aleks Paunovic) while visiting her awful mama (Carole Cook) in the hospital. G.W. (David Steen), sporting new fiberglass legs after Noleta burned his old ones, is still feeling guilty and mourning Peggy. Nearly incoherent barfly Juanita (Sarah Hunley) has moved from her obsession with Vacation Bible School roosters to the royal family while Wardell (Newell Alexander) and Odell (David Cowgill) still bicker at the bar.

[quote]Tammy Wynette champion Brother Boy (Leslie Jordan) hasn't been back to Winters since Peggy's funeral, and he's working at a tragic little gay bar in Longview, having added Loretta and Dolly to his new medley act "We Three Queens of Oper-y Are" till a chance meeting with a dangerous criminal (Emerson Collins) forces him out on the run. Again. As the sordid saga continues, an anniversary memorial service is being planned in honor of Peggy at Bubba's Bar while the Southside Baptist Church is planning an "Anti-Equality Rally" to protest the advancement of same-sex marriage, spearheaded by Vera Lisso (Lorna Scott) and Mrs. Barnes (Sharon Garrison.) Both events are to take place on the same night, so the cast of colorful characters are all on a collision course for shenanigans and fireworks! Along the way a host of new faces arrive in Winters - Ty's man, Latrelle's ex-husband and his gold digger, the new fire and brimstone preacher (Levi Kreis), Noleta's mother, several drag queens and a bisexual serial killer, all swept into the adventure on the way to the surprise wedding. As the original film dealt with coming out in a conservative southern world, A Very Sordid Wedding explores the questions, bigotry and the fallout of what happens when gay marriage comes to communities and families that are not quite ready to accept it. Bigoted "religious freedom," marriage equality and cultural acceptance are all explored with Del Shores' trademark approach to using comedy and his much-beloved Sordid Lives characters to deal with these important current social issues and the very real process of accepting your family for who they are instead of who you want them to be.

Let's hope Ty isn't as whiny as he was in the first one!

I just hope they don't ruin it like some sequels that try too hard. I'll keep my fingers crossed. From the trailer it appears that they all aged pretty well, with the extremely notable exception of Kirk Geiger, the actor who played the main star "Ty Williamson" likes like a mummified crack whore!

What's the drama why Dale replaced Beth Grant?

Is she on the outs with Del Shores?

There must be a story

This is Kirk Geiger from the original movie. Time and/or meth is a cruel bitch.

I think Beth was just busy. Dale is a great replacement at least.

SHOOT IM IN THE HAID, WARDELL!!!

I watched this on Prime Video last night and it was like a Madea movie—low budget but funny in spells.

I actually thought Dale Dickey was Beth Grant until I saw the credits.

Kirk Geiger looked awful. End of story.

Emerson Collins, best known as the floppy-haired gay from Bravo's The People's Couch, was surprisingly sexy as the redneck serial killer.

Sadly, not long after this was made, Sarah Hunley (Juanita) died of injuries she suffered in a fall outside her apartment in LA.
