Interesting but drags

A film on the Alternative Miss World beauty pageant, with both male and female contestants dressing in outrageous, erotic, unusual, elaborate, and futuristic outfits. Divine has a fabulous little cameo. Documentary type, with Little Nell singing the theme song. The contestants are fabulosuly interesting, but the film drags alot. Obscure and enjoyable, but dragging and sometimes the film quality is poor, and the film goes on forever.
