Storyline

Georges, a wealthy Parisian, has a mistress who wants to marry him, but he has no intention of divorcing his wife, the source of his money. The mistress, meanwhile, has a jealous boyfriend, so when Georges dumps her, two people are angry with him. Add Georges' wife, who suspects the affair. The mistress calls Georges to say she's coming to tell his wife everything, so Georges asks Maurice, a stranger who's passing by, to pose as his wife and scare off the mistress. In this farce, nothing goes as Georges plans. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mondo Bizarro gay themed comedy re-mindful of La Cage aux folles under acid
21 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A must see for Regis Laspales performance. Hilarious drag queen with a beard. The character he plays, Maurice, works for a charity. He collects used clothes door to door. A desperate man (the villain) begs him to help him. His mistress wants to tell his wife that he cheats on her. Can Maurice play his wife and scare the mistress off? Maurice refuses to do such a ludicrous thing, but the villain plays many tricks on him, until he accepts and off they go in Montmartre to find a dress for Maurice... and Maurice actually finds out he's a lady deep inside, and falls in love with the villain... Brilliantly shot, hilarious, a classic. Look out for Gotz Otto the bad guy in Tomorrow never dies. Look out for Alice Evans, the English heart throb of 102 Dalmatians. Action scenes and drop dead locations in Venice, Italy must be seen.
