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

Truly bad
2 August 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was such a mess. Unprofessional, poorly acted and shot, and lacking in anything close to a cohesive script. Obviously the makers had an idea to make a low-budget drag queen flick that had a John Waters feel or something - but they've totally missed the target with this effort. A lack of budget is never an excuse these days to produce such poor cinema. I've rarely been so bored.
