Funny film about cross dressing
17 February 2003 | by kamster52See all my reviews

This is a fun movie i watched long ago on TV (It was made for television) But recently i found a copy of it on Video and watched it again and it was a fun film! As i remember this was the closest films i felt connected with, I felt the movie really pushed the lines in the mid 80's. I was excited about this film, as i watched it again as an adult i see the great work by Robyn Douglass. She was believable and i felt for her character. I also remember she was involved in a Bloopers and Practical Joke hoax, just before this film came out..Fast moving, funny, intense and all around great film!
