Here's to diversity
6 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well unlike the homophobe that wrote the first review on this, I think it was a clever film that challenges gender roles and stereotypes. Just so people know, there are plenty of straight men that like dressing up in women's clothing. It's a bit off, but lets not pretend that the world is as black and white as we are told to think it is. Kathy Bates does an excellent job as a small minded nun that doesn't practice what she preaches and Stacey Halprin portrays a toned down John Waters-like character caught up in her recent divorce to the point of non-functionality. I think the acting was a bit stiff and at times forced, but like its subject the film was unique enough to keep me interested. The user before me wondered if this film had any point because it must have eluded him. Well it is perfectly clear that this film promotes a non-conformist attitude and a message not to live vicariously through your children. Shoving you child in a direction he or she does not want to go (even if it involves wearing a dress!) will only cause lifelong resentment and continue the cycle.
