Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"When a straight man puts on a dress and gets his sexual kicks, he is a transvestite. When a man is a woman trapped in a man's body, and has a little operation, he is a transsexual. When a gay man has WAY too much fashion sense for one gender, he is a drag queen."
  - Noxeema Jackson (WESLEY SNIPES) to Chi Chi Rodriguez (JOHN LEGUIZAMO).
"We gotta make moments fabulous. Because no sooner is a moment noticed than it is gone, child. And a life ain't something to be avoided."
  - Noxeema Jackson (WESLEY SNIPES)
"Ready or not, here comes mama."
  - Vida Boheme (PATRICK SWAYZE)

Rating: C -- A politically correct comedy about drag queens? This is the American response to the superior Aussie flick Adventures of Priscilla. Macho Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze, and John Leguizamo can't lift it above the routine.

Rating: 3/5 -- Entertaining, but some subplots weren't needed...there were payoffs that didn't make sense to me, but the actors brought their A-games. Full Review

Screenwriter Douglas Carter Beane pilfers not just plot elements from "Priscilla," but also stirs in big chunks of "Fried Green Tomatoes," "Bagdad Cafe," "Auntie Mame," "The Music Man" and "Cinderella." Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- A moderately amusing effort with a marquee-challenging moniker. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Kidron's direction stays flat even when the actors are funny. It doesn't help that the screenplay, by Douglas Carter Beane, is so thin that one of its biggest events is the three main characters' having car trouble.

...A celebration of openness, alternative lifestyles and bonding....Shining throughout is the brilliant Leguizamo...

Rating: 3/5 -- It just felt like I wanted to see more from these characters toward the end...that's why we started on this journey in the first place... Full Review

Product Description:

Three New York drag queens on the way to Hollywood for a beauty pageant have their car break down in a small Midwestern town, stranding the flamboyant trio for the weekend. Waiting for parts for their Cadillac convertible, the "ladies" show the locals that appearing different doesn't mean they don't have humanity in common.

Plot Synopsis:

Boys will be girls: three outrageous (but loveable) drag queens -- fierce Noxeema, sensitive Vida, and dreamer Chi Chi -- set out from New York to Hollywood in their 1967 Cadillac convertible. In addition to their eye-popping wardrobes, the divas pack a good luck charm, an autographed photo of TV's "Catwoman", Julie Newmar. But when the Caddy breaks down in Snydersville, the mother of all hick towns, the trio decides to stay for the weekend. While there, the threesome (mistaken for actual women) become enmeshed in many of the citizens' problems, ranging from spousal abuse to romantic heartache. They even teach some of the surly males to lighten up on the machismo thing. But when the fetching femmes are revealed to be gay guys, how will the town react'
