You'll Have the Time of Your Life!!!!
25 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"What's the Name of the Dame?" Isn't just a great film, it's an experience! Fun, funny and entertaining from start to finish, it features nine highly talented performers who also happen to be drag queens. Each performs an ABBA classic, giving their own unique takes on the songs. The results are exciting, hilarious and even heart-rending. That these diverse "videos" come together is due to the excellent direction by Allan Neuwirth. Neuwirth not only gives us that wonderful ABBA music, but we also meet the complex men behind the wigs, makeup and sequins. There are are also appearances by Christine Baranski, Joan Rivers and ABBA's own Benny Andersson. I loved this movie and you will too!
