    There's nothing wrong with a bit of drag but this film would have actually worked with a real woman like Bette Midler or Anne-Margret in the leading role.

    Absolutely hysterical laughs through and through!   I love showing this to a house-full of guests, who always wind up loving every scene.  Charles Busch is in full glory here - make no mistake.  This film is truly a treasure!

    This movie is 100% brilliant. It is BOUND to be a cult sensation one day. Perhaps like Rocky Horror, with an audience full of Angela Ardens.

  • SnappleArt 2010-08-02 00:41:47
    I just finished watching this movie and I have to say, this is THE most wacko, randome movie I've EVER seen, and at the same time absolutely briliant! The acting may seem shit but is hilarious, still amazing and entertaining as hell. I had a hard time finding it, but it was worth every minute! This is a must see!!

    Not on screen. It's only suggested. The only sex scene is a brief one between Jason Priestly and Natasha Lyonne.
