Storyline

Four African American women, profane and brassy, bring stand-up comedy to the Orpheum Theater in Memphis, Tennessee. Miss Laura Hayes opens the show and serves as emcee. She tells family stories about her grandkids, her mom, and her sisters. Adele Givens urges her audience to celebrate its flaws; she comments on this crazy world, her 92-year-old grandmother, and the need to take care when naming a baby. Sommore, recently released from jail, talks about kids, men, marriage, and why moms give their 8-year-old daughters a hula hoop. Last, Mo'Nique celebrates big women, contrasts Blacks and whites, and gives advice about sex. The film also cuts away to footage of the Queens on the town having fun.

Mo'Nique was hysterical and my gay friends quote her so-called "anti-gay slurs" daily. Worth seeing unless you want only Politically Correct Comedy. Thought police to the rescue! This movie is quoted amongst my friends with nearly the same frequency as Desperate Living (John Waters). Parts were slow but the great lines were absolutely great lines and worth at the very least renting. Unfortunately, I can't find any of the memorable quotes online...so I will just have to rent it again, and this time write the funny lines down! I liked it even better than Kings of Comedy, but I typically think women are funnier. Also, check out Ellen DeGeneres HBO stand up routine. Very funny.
