A talented cast, inventive musical numbers and camp humor
30 October 1999 | by dmaxlSee all my reviews

Franchesca is an aspiring young musical actress whose career is being orchestrated by her mother (played by the incomparable Varla Jean Merman) and her mother's pals. Riotous humor, inventive musical numbers, and the sheer talent of the cast - especially Varla Jean Merman - make this film entertaining from beginning to end. If you enjoy John Waters, Pedro Almodovar, or inspired lunacy in general, you'll love this one.
