Video: Duff and Sykes go anti-'gay'

by Jeremy Hooper

Get these two a buddy flick! We're seeing a wacky comedy in which they play a pair of New York City cops. By day, they free the five boroughs' streets of filthy crime; by night they free the bars and clubs of gay slurs. The two gain local fame for their principled crusade. All is going well until Wanda's character, Sandra Jenkins, is overheard arguing with a store clerk about the branding of an unlabeled sports drink sitting on his shelves. The clerk insists it's Powerade, but the indefatigable Sandra pops it open, takes a drink, and shouts, "Dude, that's SO GATORADE!" Sandra thinks the matter ends right there, but unbeknownst to her, a local TV news reporter is also in the store. The reporter had recorded the exchange, but only had enough tape to grab the "that's so ga-" part. Seeing a golden opportunity to move up the TV news ladder, the shameless reporter decides to run a damning (if wholly fallacious) story about the homophobia-targeting cop's own verbal misfires. Sandra Jenkins is shunned by her fellow cops and fellow citizens. Nobody sticks by her except Hillary character, Mallory Dees. Mallory knows that her partner loves both the gays and Gatorade, and that she would never target either. Mallory and Sandra set out to prove the former's innocence. Along the way, they learn about the justice system, the power of friendship, and most importantly -- themselves.

Feel free to use it, Paramount. It'd be SOOOOO straight!
