To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar

Some reviewers euphemistically described this as America's answer to The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert—which only makes sense if you consider that better-than-average Australian movie a question. This horrifically ugly and witless middle-American comedy (1995), seemingly designed for small-town homophobes who want to feel tolerant, is basically just an excuse to show Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze, and John Leguizamo in dresses—never mind giving them a plausible reason for wearing them—and send them on a cross-country journey to teach stupid straights in Nebraska how to be “outrageous” and improve their love lives. Douglas Carter Beane is credited with the script and Beeban Kidron with the direction, though whether this is either written or directed is a matter of debate; sadly, the able secondary cast—Stockard Channing, Blythe Danner, Arliss Howard, Jason London, and Chris Penn—is disabled, like the leads, by the extenuating circumstances.
