It's Fun, and Fun to Read the Bad Reviews Here Too
13 September 2006 | by (wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I have to say, the bad reviews here written by (I'm guessing) bewildered, clueless straight people are almost as funny as the movie. You're either someone who is going to "get" this kind of thing, or you're not. Unfortunately, there's no Rating to warn these kind of people off movies like this.

The movie isn't perfect, but you wouldn't want it to be.

The dialog is very funny, and each of the girls acts up a storm. They're all good in their way, but Varla Jean is outstanding, easily the funniest and most distinctive drag character since Divine.

When it's funny, it's very funny. When it's in bad taste, it's . . . very funny. The sets and costumes (as you would expect) are all letter perfect and there are as many sight gags as there are funny lines. Need cheering up? Rent Girls Will Be Girls . . . .
