I saw this film at Fusion 2005 in L.A., and I laughed from start to finish, as did the entire screening audience. Cho's turn as her mother is priceless. Jane Lynch as a lesbian survivalist and Danny Hoch as a neo-nazi clerk hopped up on sump'm are both hilarious. And the super-bitch played by Elaine Hendrix made my jaw drop at times with her racist rants...when my jaw was not busy laughing. What is funniest about the movie is its willingness to "go there" with stereotypes, queer or otherwise, and turn them on their respective ears. The plot is sort of like "Priscilla: Queen of the Desert" in reverse, with a trip from nowheresville to NYC in the queerest car you've ever seen. What I have not seen reflected in any of the reviews of this film so far is that, at least at Fusion, EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING! So once it's out in theaters, grab your friends and go see it!
