    Hey she is filming Stephanie Plum One for the Money in a week or so. If this is her practice look for Steph - this film is going to be even a bigger fail *not a bitter fan or anything*

    That hair makes her look like a soccer mom from the suburbs of Memphis or Dallas

    I really, really hate that she's in that role. I started reading the Stephanie Plum series thanks to the recc's of you guys here on GR and it is soooo good. Just delightful, fun, lighthearted reading.

    I totally picture Stephanie Plum as being played by someone like Ellen Page or Alyson Hannigan or Rachel Lee Cook. Someone endearing and quirky but funny. Brittany Murphy might have been really good in that role too.

    But in my brain, she's more like Ellen Page in her HP commercials. NOT Katherine Bitch-on-Wheels- Heigl.

    Yep,...we use the word poofy here in the midwest for hair, or even clothing and other items. I have never heard of it being a racial slur. Not around here anyways.

    I think Sandra Bullock would have been perfect for Stephanie Plum. Heigl will suck!!

    ^ It's not a racial slur. Poof is used as a derogatory word for a gay person.
    But I've heard people use it in this way (poofy hair) too.

    I agree but I think she might be a touch too old. Not that she looks it.

    This page is awesome:
    Cast the Stephanie Plum movie. -- A Grupthink Topic

    I love it. Lara Flynn Boyle as Joyce, The Rock as Ranger, Queen Latifa as Lula, Jeffery Dead Morgan as Morielli, Estelle Getty (RIP) as Grandma Mazur. Or Betty White even. Fran Drescher should be Connie.

    Oh- here's another good one: Lauren Graham as Stephanie Plum. I like that idea a lot.

    Ooh, Lauren Graham would be excellent. I would watch her in anything. Damn I miss Gilmore Girls.

    Out here (Eastern U.S.), "poofy" is used to describe clothes or hair that looks like it's filled with air.

    Or they say: "My hair is all 'poofed up' today." Perhaps if we spelled it "pouf" it would not be mistaken for the British/Australian slur. It is a term that is used in fashion/costume/art history.

    Ok, sorry. I meant to say slur toward a gay individual, not racial slur. Regardless,...it isn't used that way around this area of the midwest.

    Over here on the other side poofy is used the same way. I've also heard it to describe furniture. I think there are poof chairs, like a huge bean bag chair. And it also means to disappear. Like poof, I'm gone.

    It depends on how you pronounce 'poof' and 'poofy'

    In the US it rhymes with 'goof' and 'goofy,' and just means puffy and kind of fussy.

    In the UK it rhymes with 'oeuf' (French for egg) and means fagg__t.

    Whereas in the UK 'fag' means cigarette.

    God, it's confusing. I'm American and I didn't understand half of what was said to me the first time I visited.

    ETA: I don't think Heigl's gay friends would have let her go out like that anyway.

    I remember as a kid I was a tad chubby for a few years. I use to have this one piece swimsuit that would fill up with air and water when I swam. I looked very poofy in that suit for sure!

    My kids watch this show (on Nickelodeon) I just hate, called "The Fairly Oddparents". The OddParents (who are fairies), have a baby named "Poof". I wonder if they have to dub this show when it plays in the UK?
