Reminiscent of Sunset Boulevard, Hustler White transposes the action from the silver screen's old movie backlots to contemporary male prostitution and the porn industry. Said to be an homage to classic Hollywood cinema.
We become intimate with the "Sordid Lives" of a family in a small Texas town preparing for the funeral of the mother. Among the characters are the grandson trying to find his identity in West Hollywood, the son who has spent the past twenty-three years dressed as Tammy Wynette, the sister and her best friend (who live in delightfully kitschy homes), and the two daughters (one strait-laced and one quite a bit looser).

Delta Burke's role was originally supposed to be played as a larger woman, but when she showed up on the set having lost a lot of weight, a pivotal scene was played as if she had lost the weight, but her neglectful husband hadn't noticed. (The role was originally to be played by Patrika Darbo.) See more »

I got this DVD on the 'recommendation' of Amazon...normally I wouldn't touch anything they try to sell me, but it looked like it could be an interesting movie, what with ONJ and all. Well, am I ever glad I got it..This is a seriously funny movie, and not a little bizarre maybe that's why the humor is so good? Lesbians, Transvestites and more, and all done in the worst possible taste! Coupled with the Tammy Wynettee music in the soundtrack it all adds up to a great and camp movie. Although I do like Olivia Newton John, she is really a bit superfluous here, and I have to say that the songs she sings aren't of the best quality..but..If you want a really good laugh, get this. It will probably appeal more to gay viewers, but my mom enjoyed it!
