A deeply surreal comedy with moments of stark poignancy.
18 August 2004 | by (Durham, NC) – See all my reviews

I saw this as part of a gay & lesbian film festival, and was impressed. Though the plot derails in a couple of places, leaving one to wonder just why some things have happened, the messages are well-presented and the film is very, very fun. It's definitely campy, the comedy is frequently raunchy and the setting is ridiculous, but what fairy tale isn't? When the film comes around to making its occasional serious points - our society's polarization over issues of body-image, our inability to understand or learn from the past, our inability to predict the outcomes of extremist stances, the demons of poor self-esteem that haunt the great - it does it well and generally without the use of an iron fist. Compositionally, the camera work is good, the costuming flawless and the set design cheesy in all the right ways to set off the campy feel. The actors are definitely right for their parts, and the performances are generally spot-on.

The movie itself does a great job of emphasizing the dreamlike surreality of a bedtime story. Unsure whether I liked it at first, by the end I was disappointed to see it over. This movie definitely isn't for everyone, but if you want to spend a couple of legally trippy hours giggling, you want this movie.
