The original theatrical release had a different song used throughout the opening credits. Cities In Dust by Siouxsie and the Banshees. See more »


In her opening invocation, Empress Chi Chi Valenti (Vera Beren) welcomes those assembled for the "fifth annual 'Night of a Thousand Stevies'." However, with the film being set in 2001, it would have actually been the eleventh annual gathering. This is a rather curious error on Valenti's part considering that she serves as the real-life producer and MC of "Night of a Thousand Stevies" and has done so ever since the event was conceived in 1991.

Clive: Sex just seems so... messy.
Gypsy: Oh, no, no. Sex can be awesome. Not that I would remember, but...
Clive: Maybe you and I should try.
Gypsy: Yeah, well, I think I'm past my wayward-sex fag-hag test-fuck phase... but thanks for the offer. It's just "been there, done that."
Clive: At least I'd know for sure.
Gypsy: Honey, you're a queer, with a capital "Q."
Clive: Ok, you know what? Some of us don't care to be defined by our sexuality.
Gypsy: Ok, sorry. Can I ask you a question?
Clive: What?
Gypsy: Are you gay?

My thoughts on the movie
14 January 2005 | by oompa_loompa40See all my reviews

First of all, I'd just like to say that some of the above comments are completely ridiculous. Someone who is such a straight-edge heterosexual mans comments are nearly useless due to the aforementioned facts. And referring to people as "fat" girls is utterly rude.

Now as for the movie...I actually liked this one quite a bit. It may have gone a little over the top at some times with the drama but all in all it was a tear-jerker. Kett Turton pulls off a very good performance as the vaguely gender challenged Clive. I'd actually never seen Sara Rue in anything else besides "Less than Perfect" and was amazed that it was the same actress. No doubt she has talent. The soundtrack is really killer, and I suggest that you check that one out as well. While this may not be the best movie on the planet, it's always just a good watch.
