Outrageous
6 December 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Part sex-comedy/part domestic drama/part musical/part fashion parade/part disaster movie - all De Mille!

This is outrageous - you will never see another movie like this one. Struggle through the boring first 45 minutes and you will be amply rewarded. A staggering special effects climax, magnificent costumes by Adrian and absolute decadence by all make this film unforgettable!
