Not your average Troma film, 6 June 2004
Author: Zen Bones from USA

This isn't a great film, but I don't think the 2.0 rating and the one negative review in any way reflect the real quality of this movie. The median rating for this picture is 8, so IMDb's arithmetic is questionable, and who reviews a movie after only watching twenty minutes of it?

Unfortunately, this is a Troma release, so the majority of its viewers are going to expect something gross and outlandish, maybe like "The Killer Condom", which was a terrific film, but again, not even close to some of the grossest stuff by Troma. This is actually a rather gentle comedy with some acid wit and low production values that make one yearn for the early days of John Waters (beware though, this film is tame even by Waters' contemporary standards). Stephanie Orff plays a lonely, nerdish young lady who lives in a very small town that apparently isn't too far from Brentwood in West Los Angeles (go figure!). She hopes to get her big break in life by winning the town's beauty pageant, but even with only five competitors (which dwindles to just one other competitor due to various adversities) and the only judge her best friend, her chances look slim. Orff has real charm and Damion Dietz, who plays her gay friend and who also wrote and directed this, has a real talent for subtlety in his acting, writing and direction. It was also a real kick to see Wil Wheaton, formerly the sickeningly sweet Wesley Crusher on Star Trek the Next Generation, playing a seedy, scruple less owner of a Christian Book Store.

Given the lame, sit-comish, unoriginal crap of most of today's gay cinema, this film has a refreshing current of un-PC humor, original characters, and genuine laughs. Check it out!
