Never a bad time to celebrate America in the movies and the best way to do that is to give a list of the best patriotic characters in film.
Because America rules, it’s another episode of The Deucecast Movie Show! Last week, Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl, with special guest Lil G Ryfun, the pride of South TyTy Georgia, gave their lists of the most patriotic roles in movies… and a funny thing happened — they all seemed to be dudes.
So what better way to reconcile this blunder than to do an all female list of patriotic roles, which, like last week, is really just a list of awesome American characters in films that all the guys decided to dub “patriotic”, but #Merica anyway.
First up, though, a rousing game of Ryan Phillippe, with everyone from Sigourney Weaver to one Christopher Pratt being called out.
Then, the list, which includes Mikey’s total misunderstanding (and defense of Padme)… #TwitterlessDrEarl goes old school again… who won what award in Hidden Figures and The Help… Lil G Ryfun squeezes in a Nolan… Emily Blunt gets double action… an Amy Adams discussion and it’s not from d$… and much more.
