Watch It Now
Practically defines the words 'niche appeal', but should take the very specific group it's actually aimed at by storm.
Gays, transvestites and transsexuals, mostly black, strut their stuff in an uninhibited fashion as they compete on catwalks and dancefloors before panels of judges.
The songs (including a saucy ode to Justin Timberlake) are fresh and witty.
A bewildering exploitation flick that will probably end up with a dedicated cult following.
It is cheap, cheerful and so keen-to-please you want to adopt it as if it were an orphaned dog. It rolls out its tongue like a red carpet.
What the film lacks in subtlety and finesse it makes up with sparky characters and meaty songs.
Clearly not aimed at a mass audience, who, even if they're open to gay issues, may be turned off by on-the-cheap production values and self-conscious "acting" by principals.
