I've been watching Babylon 5 from Netlflix, but I randomly got a DVD out of order and watched it today.  It was hilarious.  This is a great movie if you need to be cheered up because it makes you smile throughout.  It's especially fun to watch if you love shoes (like I do).

It's the age old story, you know:  shoemaker meets drag queen, drag queen saves shoe factory…

I thought it was really well done, and was surprised to find out that it was based on a real shoe factory that ended up making women's shoes in men's sizes when their conservative shoes stopped selling.

Chiwetel Ejiofor (Love Actually, Children of Men) plays Lola/Simon, the drag queen that saves the day.  He plays the part so well.  Here are some stills of him as Lola/Simon and one of him in Love Actually (on the right with Keira Knightley) for a comparison.
