Amazing movie! This girl is an idiot who criticizes this movie!
5 August 2003 | by suzannemartin78See all my reviews

This movie is brilliant. The comments made before is from someone who obviously doesn't get it. The movie is campy- yes! But it is uplifting and fun. This movie is an underground hit and brings comparisons to Absolutely Fabulous. It is a must see!
