Customer Review

on 20 April 2006
This is essentially a very well crafted comedy of the road movie variety rather than a serious look at transgender issues. Some newspaper and magazine reviews have criticised the movie for this. However, I feel they are missing the point because from start to finish the movie deals with universal themes about family, belonging, acceptance and love. It does so in a light non-preaching way. The transgender theme allows for some very funny "mistaken identity" (or should that be "mistaken gender") comedy moments and it also allows the movie to tell us in a very gentle way that we are probably all more or less the same underneath the surface. Across the board the performances are spot on. The writing is excellent and the direction puts the focus squarely on the characters rather than on the changing scenery as is the case for so many road movies. This is heart warming, funny, well acted comedy.
