Product Description

Product Description

Travelling to a drag queen beauty pageant in Hollywood, three New York 'girls' find themselves in for a shock when their car breaks down in the midwestern town of Snydesville. Just how dull can one town be? Nevermind, they decide to make the best of it and set about bringing a little glitz and glamour into the lives of the staid local citizenry. Tough guy actors Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo don wigs and shave their legs as they take the lead roles in this unconventional comedy.

From Amazon.co.uk

This clunky road movie about three drag queens (Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, and John Leguziamo) who get stranded in a sleepy Nebraska town on their way to a beauty contest, is too uplifting for its own good. Released during drag's mid-90s heyday when RuPaul and the Wigstock documentary were all the rage, To Wong Foo aimed straight for the mainstream with its inoffensive camp and "can't we all get along" morality. While gay-activist groups howled about straights getting the lead roles in To Wong Foo, in the end the filmmakers really couldn't have done better than this trio of actors. John Leguziamo provides real sass and bite as a Latino (or should we saw Latina?) drag queen, and Wesley Snipes is surprisingly fierce as the imposing leader of the pack. Saddled with a cloying Southern accent and off-kilter wig, Patrick Swayze barely holds his own with his co-stars, though. To Wong Foo is best viewed as a cultural artefact of a time when it seemed as though drag could rule all tomorrow's parties. --Ethan Brown, Amazon.com

The craziest film that will have you in tears of laughter. A film that was meant only to be a bet, spurred into a blockbuster of a movie starring the most unlikeliest of actors that are Wesley Snipes, (yes, him that plays BLADE) and the Dirty Dancer of Patrick Swayze. Playing Drag Queens, Snipes and Swayze give an outstanding performance with a supporting cast from John Leguizamo, (the other Drag Queen). This brings the worlds society of homophobia to a complete new level that will make you understand why men dress up as women.

How can you bypass a film that boasts Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes complete with excessive amounts of satin and mascara, its a classic! Gone are Swayze's Dirty Dancing-famed bum-hugging jeans and jaw-dropping muscles, to be replaced by a super-camp girly voice and stillettos! Even Leguzamo (or some similar spelling!) pulls off a classic ugly duckling transormation from Boy-in-a-dress to Drag-Queen, making it very hard to view his as the angry little prince of cats Tybalt in the recent Romeo and Juliet remake! The film is a clever conbination of reality issues and wigs&wardrobes, it's a feel-good film yet with depth, it'll make you want to hang a picture of Julie Newmar on your dashboard and razz off through America in your clapped-out yellow convertible! "Style or Substance?"...hmmm...this film has both! Watch it-oh and watch out for Rizzo from Grease!

With two huge names in the hollywood action movie genre headlining this comedy,I was doubtful that Swayze and Snipes could ever make me see them as anything less than action men in dresses. The remarkable thing about this undoubted feel-good movie is the willingness of these guys to take such a big gamble with a script that deviates so severly from the mainstream. With a brilliant role for the delectable Stockard Channing thrown in for good measure this is one of the most entertaining pieces of cinema since 'Grease'.

Format: DVD
In this hugely flamboyant and very funny drag-queen comedy, Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes and John Leguiszmo head for L.A to complete in the "drag-queens'" version of 'Miss World' but on the way, they get lost and end up in a sleepy town filled with a whole motherload of extraordinary characters for our 'queens' to interact with.
Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes are both seriously hilarious and, sometimes, sadly annoying but it's John Leguiszmo's outrageously daring performance as Chi-Chi Rodriguez that makes this picture worth watching, even though Swayze and Snipes are pretty good themselves. The supporting cast ranging from Robin Williams, Stockard Channing to RuPaul and Alias's Michael Vartan all help the film flow smoothly while some of the locales look gorgeous and all the gags in this flick comes thick and fast.

Although this isn't 'The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert', this IS its exact equal but with a nicer feel to the genre that's filled with lots of fun, laughter and glamour that should be featured in these types of films.

okay, first things first, DO NOT compare this movie with Priscilla. there'll be a strong urge to do so but i implore you, see this movie on it's own merit. c'mon, think about it, every womans (and some mens!)dream hunk, in drag! and every mans hard man in drag too! only comedy could ensue. it's simply fabulous! it's kitsch, harmless, and funny as hell! but compare it with Priscilla at your own peril. this movie IS the americans reply to priscilla but i think they've pulled it off. OF COURSE it's going to have the same ideas, but whats magical about this movie is they've made it so typically american and you can't help but like it.

Format: VHS Tape
This film is alittle far fetched but brings out people's attitudes towards transvestites. 3 guys who spend their days and nights as women go for a wild trip to win the ultimate prize for being a drag artist. They find themselves stuck somewhere and are taken in by the local's. The town is full of varied people who are so used to their lives and anything new is like a sin. The women in the town bring themselves up to the 3 girls and change themselves, take notes from the girls and become a new person. The ending has an amazing climax and just brings a smile on your face! I would recommend this film if you have an open mind and like a laugh!

This film is about 'drag queens' - also better known as hunks - Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes. After palying so many tough guy roles, Swayze and Snipes obviously had a field day making this. Their enjoyment and 'camping it up' is so infectious. There are some hilarious scenes when the girls are mistaken for 'real girls'. One of the funniest is when Snipes and Swayze decide to show some 'gentleman' how to treat a real lady. It is just hilarious! Pure enjoyement

I first watched this film at a friend's home, and enjoyed it so much I had to buy it. Now I watch it about once a week, just for the smile it still puts on my face.

The story, about three drag queens crossing America in a car to take part in a beauty pageant, is clearly similar to Priscilla, Queen of The Desert, but in my opinion, is more "fun". It is a fairytale that shows lives and relationships from a different angle. There is comedy, but it does not take over as the ethos of the film, and the film can sometimes squeeze a tear, too. It also tackles domestic violence in a different, and strangely gratifying, way.

All three of the main actors put in incredibly good performances. Wesley Snipes really abandoned himself in the spirit of his part as Noxeema - he makes a great drag queen, and looked awesome. Patrick Swayze seemed a little more uncomfortable as Vida, but gave his character warmth, and showed her as deeply human and vulnerable. But it was John Leguizamo as Chi Chi who was the biggest hit for me; Chi-Chi lived, she had depth, a sassy latin girl with a soft centre - I loved her.
