Storyline

If John Waters directed Bonnie and Clyde as an homage to Laverne & Shirley, the result would be something like the hysterical Red Lipstick the movie. Incorporating the manic approach of The Monkees and the camp aesthetic of the 60s Batman TV series, this heist movie in drag is a laugh-riot from wigs to stilettos. Starring, Hedda Lettuce and Miss Understood as a pair of none-too-glam dragqueens, down on their luck and living the low life in New York City circa 1992. A not particularly bright scheme to reinvent themselves as Bonnie and Bunny, bank robbers in daring frocks, rockets them to fame and finally gives them enough cash to hire a posh, Eastern European, interior decorator, specializing in rococo. But all is not feather boas and sequins. The envy of Brenda, bitchy Morticia Adams clone, and Violet, a whip-wielding dominatrix, scheme to ruin the party. Cannot forget to mention Frankie, psychotic toxic waste magnate and underworld honcho, who has his eye on the gals' booty, er, ... Written by anonymous

"A HIGH-CAMP Contemporary Comedic Farce..."
14 May 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

In time, this motion picture will be a global 'cult-classic'. For anyone who's ever seen 'Hedda Lettuce' perform live @ Caroline's Comedy Club; or, 'Miss Understood' perform at The Pyramid Club; or, have ever been to the Wigstock Festival; this film will certainly be appreciated for it's outlandish premise; the hysterical performances of the actors; and for the witty tongue-in-cheek banter of the main characters. If one realizes that the whole purpose of the film is Humor (NOT to be taken Seriously); then, and only then, might one 'get it'. The Premise: 'Two NYC Drag Queens go an a Bonnie-and-Clyde bank-robbing spree and share the loot (well...some of it, at least) with the Homeless; thereby becoming Public Heroes whilst being pursued by the NY Police and a Rival Gang. However, there are complications. Example #1: Neither of Drag Queens want to be 'Clyde'. Enjoy!
