Storyline

New York substitute science teacher/stand-up comic Richard Martinez - who isn't even remotely effective at either - finally lands a full-time position in Texas through the Teaching Ambassador Program, but his stint falls short when it's discovered he's gay. With only one friendly local behind him, Richard returns to the school as sassy Bianca Del Rio, an outspoken teacher who'll put the unruly students and hypocritical school staff in their proper places, instantly becoming the best teacher he's ever been and the school has ever seen.

The volcano experiment in the science lab involves mixing chemicals including nitroglycerin. It is very highly unlikely that high school students would be allowed to handle nitroglycerin (even in a highly diluted form) as they did during the experiment. See more »

Karma Johnstone: Why's that?
Richard Martinez: Well, most parents don't name their children after Buddhist principles.

Cowboy Willie: Mary's not plain! Mary's angelic!

I am sure there is a niche audience out there for a movie such a this...

I was not sure what to expect from this movie. I happened to find it by sheer random luck, and I wasn't familiar with it at all prior to finding it. While the synopsis wasn't overly enticing, I still decided to watch the movie, because you do happen to stumble upon a gem every now and again.

The story in this movie was adequate, although rather predictable. Was it entertaining? Sure. Just don't get your expectations turned up too high, because this movie doesn't deliver anything outstanding in any particular way or sense.

The acting in "Hurricane Bianca" was actually okay, and people were doing fair jobs with their given characters.

Personally, I don't understand the need that these men in drag have of putting on way too much make-up. It just looks downright ridiculous. And I can't even begin to fathom what is the reason for this, nor do I feel the urge or need to actually find out.

A very politically correct movie if there ever was one. I feel like "Hurricane Bianca" caters to a very specific niche in the audience, and I can't claim to be part of that niche, because I was not overly impressed or entertained with the outcome of this movie.
