Geddy Lee Friday - Starring Alex Lifeson

If you're a die-hard Rush fan, or a Canadian who likes watching TV, you know about the Trailer Park Boys. They are associated with a Canadian show bearing the same name - about a group of aging hoods living in a trailer park. Each week brought some wacky, profanity-laden adventure - the show proved popular enough in the Great White North to spawn two films. In each one, Alex Lifeson has a cameo. In fact, he's done a number of film appearances, usually playing a cop:

In Countdown to Liquor Day, he's on the Vice squad. Sex-ay:

I have not seen this film yet, but I did see the first one and most of the series. First film was a disappointment. I'm not much of a fan of the TV to movie transition because so much is lost. The TNG Trek films, the Sex in the City ones - they lose the character development when they try to squeeze years of familiarity into two hours. Why not just extend the series. Oh well, rant off. Enjoy Lerxst in drag.
