Storyline

Walt Koontz, a homophobic guy, ends up with paralyzed vocal cords because of an unfortunate stroke. His therapy includes receiving singing lessons from a neighbor who is not only openly flamboyant but also a pre-op transgenderist. Both of them are equally prejudiced; Koontz against homosexuals and the neighbor against close-minded straight people. Written by Rob Reser - The Movie Kid - <moviekid@filmspot.com>

Bait and switch -- beware
24 July 2000 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

The ads and the box for this video were REALLY misleading --- beware. It's a pretty good movie, but not because of DeNiro; he's pretty much just a "fixture." Philip Hoffman is the guy who makes the whole movie. I liked him in Mr. Ripley.... He really shows his depth of talent as a transvestite. Just be aware that you are not seeing the movie that was advertised to you.. This is a switchero. Even tho it was good, it really irritates me that they had to bait and switch to get me to rent it.. Thank god it just cost me 79cents!
