Leguizamo doing what he does best.
18 November 2004 | by (NYC & Cherry Grove) – See all my reviews

John Leguizamo does drag comedy better than most other men. He has a spectacular history of different characterizations in his wide ranging body of work. This is just one of the many, and though not his best, its damn good and it's what carries this short film.

This 30 minute film, "TIME EXPIRED", is a simple story-- Man goes to jail, man meets drag-queen in jail, man has jail-house-affair with drag-queen, man is released from jail and finds the previously released drag-queen waiting for him.

Much to the dismay of the released prisoner's wife, the man finds himself involved in a not too common love "triangle": man, wife, & drag-queen.

It's predictable, it's not Leguizamo's best, but it's very funny and a great chance to see this genius of wide characterizations at work.

Highly recommended.
