With Tina Fey’s new book “Bossypants” and Tad Friend’s profile of Anna Faris in The New Yorker, there’s been a lot of talk about women in showbiz – at least a lot more talk than usual. Whether you’re a fan of these two comediennes or not, all the buzz they’re generating got me in the mood for a good old-fashioned, feel-good chick flick. Luckily, BYE BYE BIRDIE was on TV (I said old-fashioned). It may be a musical comedy, but it still counts. In fact, of some of the funniest gags are the songs themselves. Paul Lynde is hilarious is his earnest ode to Ed Sullivan, and the heartfelt teenage proclamations of love are ingeniously insipid, like when Kim coos to her beau, “Huuugo, I will go wherever youuu go.”
