full frontal nudity of tranny
27 June 2000 | by (brasilia, brasil) – See all my reviews

I was watching late cable flipping channels and happened upon a woman with a penis and was like ```what the &**%!?´´. The rest of the film was bogged down with drag queens lip-synching and non sensical dirty old men wondering where all of their wig donned pets are disappearing to. The story is contrived and boring but if you like that worn out drag queen scene in films then this is for you. It pioneers in it´s projection of frontal nudity of a chick with a you know what, but besides that it is all just smoke and mirrors. I ended up falling asleep with the TV on.
