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

sorry but John Waters would be the worst film maker if Abel Ferera was never born
15 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thank God that the prior comment and I are NOT in disagreement. Jown Waters is one of the worst film-makes that ever lived. Just getting anything campy or trashy on the screen is not considered film-making. This film (contrary to the prior review) shows more hope and promise than all the work John Waters ever put together - don't get me started on Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Ricky Lake or any of that garbage - it remains unworthy of mention. For a careful film enthusiast this film hides a few nice surprises if you're ready to put up with 70 minutes of gook to see 12 minutes of good film-making. Obviously a beginner's luck but well deserved - it does show promise - unlike Waters. Give this same film maker another 60 million dollars and something good will come out. Following that logic if I give my cat 35 million dollars something good may come out too. Thanks, but no, thanks. Yeah, low budget, right. What exactly was Spielberg's budget for The Duel? Less than low. How about Copola's budget for Apocalypse - he had to get a 2nd and 3rd mortgage on his own home - so low budget can not fly these days. Even with low budget a person can make good worthwhile (and artistically well formed piece of work).
