This review is from: To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar [DVD] (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.
