9 Movies with Characters who Cross-Dress to Solve Their Problems

Not every time a man puts on a dress is he wearing for trans reasons — sometimes it’s just because he needs to solve (or dodge) a problem. Here’s a list of movies where characters don clothes to mask their identity. From a sports coach who has his girlfriend’s son to dress the part to join his girls’ soccer team, to three fraternity guys who need a way to find evidence that will clear them of a big accusation. These ladies and gents comically go back and forth between their own clothes and the outfits of their personas until they’re caught. Hopefully they get their problems solved before their wigs get pulled off!
