Not What You'd Expect in a film with a John Waters cameo
16 August 2014 | by (San Diego CA) – See all my reviews

Mangus is about a likable and talented teen right out of the '70s TV show Fame, who's always wanted to play Jesus in his town's Jesus Christ Superstar knockoff, but then loses the use of his legs in a car accident after winning the role. It's got the feel (and shares some cast members) as Christopher Guest/Rob Reiner films like Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration, highly improvised if not as well written. There's even a crazy John Waters cameo (as if anything he's ever done ISN'T crazy).

Only one other review of it on IMDb so far, and I pretty much agree that much of the film falls a bit short script-wise, but it's an interesting premise with some strong performances. It's introduced on DVD as an example of "queer filmmaking" for some reason, tho I'm not sure why (other than a few characters do seem to be gay) - if anything, it's kind of devout, which is no mean feat in a movie that has John Waters in it!
