throw this film in the garbage can. and then throw that garbage can in a bigger garbage can.
28 April 2005 | by travisrexSee all my reviews

this movie breaks new ground for terrible. i bought this for a dollar at a thrift store in south Florida and if i ever return to the area, i will return this movie to the shelf it was on. i used to watch it with friends just to laugh at the clumsy performances, incredible dialogue ("it's all so precious and right," "you're weird, weird! sick-weird!") and preposterously ham-handed treatment of the issues surrounding "transsexuality" but now, in 2005, it's just unacceptable. the only redeeming quality to this film is it's datedness- (the disco-strings montage of Hollywood landmarks as seen from a taxicab window, in particular, is priceless) but beyond that it's just a painful movie to watch. please don't even bother with this film. it's a garbage film.
