It's too bad that the requirements of plotting require movies like this to crank up the event count, when actually what works is just the daily minutiae of Bernadette's life.

Outrageous, in a calculated way, the film's success relies heavily on the players, and fortunately, Stamp, Weaving and Pearce are up for it.

For sheer camp value, Priscilla is a lot of fun, even if it has next to nothing to say.

In this roaringly comic and powerfully affecting road movie, Terence Stamp gives one of the year's best performances.
