Like most sequels Too Outrageous doesn't live up to the original in any way. It is definitely a failure as a movie. Now that being said there are a few good things to recommend someone giving this movie a view-the drag. Craig Russell has done some of the best "outrageous" drag in the past and a couple of his impersonations are right on while a couple of them are way off the mark. He did about the best Mae West impersonation there was out there- other than the lady herself and in this movie he is right on the mark with Miss West again. Also Peggy Lee. And so is his Judy Garland a fine impersonation. But he is not up to impersonating Tina Turner, Janis Joplin or Eartha Kitt in this movie- those would have been best left to somebody else. What else recommends this movie is the charming relationship between the schizophrenic Liza and Robin- it's rare that the mentally ill are given any realistic treatment in film.
