Celeste and Bam Bam escape their Midwest hometown on an epic road trip to New York City. There they take on their high-school nemeses - now the dictators of the world-famous Salon Mirage - and discover that true beauty lies within. Written by
I had the chance to catch Bam Bam and Celeste at the Toronto Festival. C'MON!! This is a campy feel good hit and it should be. Whose expecting this to be an English Art film?!?!?!? Margaret Cho is beyond amazing playing her mother. WOW. Alan Cumming is completely endearing. Elaine Hendrix is so evil it's delicious. Butch Klein is ridiculously hot and crazy funny. And Jane Lynch makes me want to BE a lesbian. In fact even the one line cameos are worth a laugh. The movie moves at a quick pace and everyone walked out having a great time....and quoting lines the next day. Sure, there were things that some people didn't get, but that's why people rent cult movies over and over....so they finally get it.....I, for one, was happy to get away from the heavy overwrought drama's in the festival...(and the world, for that matter) and spend two hours with people who made me laugh. Thanks!
