A hilarious, fun-filled romance with a semi-serious message about the risks of being true to one's self. Ms. Vardalos comes through again in a witty piece about living life and following one's dream no matter what the cost. She wrote and produced the film, so her usually optimistic and mischievous stamp is imprinted without hesitation. The music was stunning and joyfully rendered by both Ms. Vardalos and Ms. Colette. All the actors were more than competent and seemed to enjoy themselves immensely. The tidbits of drag lore sprinkled throughout were especially charming and interesting. The movie fulfills the promise of uplifting, enjoyable entertainment, so often unfilled by cinema today. I loved it!
