a ladyboy comedy that makes the Eurovision Song Contest look subtle
14 March 2006 | by colettesplaceSee all my reviews

Cheerleader Queens is a Thai drag sex comedy with the subtlety of the Eurovision Song Contest and the profundity of Porkys.

Four ladyboys, Mod, Som, Kam-pan and Wa-wa, move to Bangkok to attend a Catholic high school – in full drag some of the time! Sport is compulsory, but the boys are kicked off the cheerleading squad by some homophobe bitches. After they save the rugby team from being dispanded by miraculously scoring some tries, they form their own cheerleading squad, and train for the State finals.

The film gets bogged down at this point, and could do with more training montages. Cheerleader Queens also suffers from an overuse of crying, cliché, fainting (whenever Mod sees his cute crush, the aptly-named Pang, for example), accidents (including temporary blindness) and limp-wristed 'running like a girl'.

In addition, any potentially serious moments are badly handled – when Som has a drug problem, for example, his friends find an entire bottle of ecstasy tablets in his pocket. And in the cheerleading finals, their arch-rivals outperform our heroes so significantly that the closeness of the competition seems ludicrous.

Don't fret, though, there is some fun to be had. It's great to see so many out, camp queens, who also get to be friends with the rugby team and vanquish potential muggers by satisfying them sexually. These cute boys are great pals and most of the film is high-energy and colourful, with liberal doses of feather boa and eyeshadow.
