Sissy Frenchfry is the most popular and the most fabulous student at West Beach High School, but stinky winds of change are blowing. A new student, Bodey McDodey, arrives and makes it his mission to remake West Beach High in his own straight-acting image. He challenges Sissy — who ran unopposed for student council president three years in a row — in the election, takes over the quarterback position on the football team, and even dates a female cheerleader! His dad gives a fat check to the school board, but on condition that they eliminate some of the "gender-inappropriate" behavior in the school. Leslie Jordan, familiar to fans of Will & Grace, Boston Public, and Boston Legal, plays Principal Principle.
I found Sissy Frenchfry amusing, but unsatisfying. Most notably, I didn't get any visceral sense of the affection and admiration the school was supposed to have for the title character, I only saw the superficial indications.
