Audience Reviews for Holiday Heart

Great movie, a favorite of mine. Shows what greatness you can find if you look beyond the surface of people! Holiday, a drag queen, is a loyal friend, and a kind person, with a huge heart! Ving Rhames did a great job in this movie, as did Alfre Woodward as an addict.

I first saw this film on BET, and man was It a tear jerker. Holiday Heart is an all to real story about a drag queen, trying to take care of a little girl who's mother has become a crack addtic, who is willing to let her daughter get raped, just to have a hit of cocaine. Ving Rahmes is also good as Holiday, a drag queen who really wants to take care of this little girl, but doesn't know how. If you can seat though it's intense images, and sad story, than I recomend it, if not, than this movie is't for you.

One of the best bad movies ever. A lip synching, linebacker sized drag queen who takes in a scuzzy cokehead and her bad actor daughter.
