There's nothing flawless about this clunker.

Outdated and schematic, this two-character melodrama belongs to the 1970s, when transsexuals were "novel" dramatic persona; even the gifted Philip Seymour Hoffman is defeated by the writing and direction.

For what it's worth, this could be Schumacher's best film.

...a well-balance work that captures the often jaw dropping performances by the dancers.

Its weary clichés and flat comic bits are apparently supposed to be fresh and insightful.

What's worse than a film directed by Joel Schumacher? How about a film written and directed by Joel Schumacher?

De Niro and Hoffman deliver the goods, but they are lost within a cockamamie, violent subplot that pulls down everything.

a piece of junk jewelry even Robert DeNiro and Philip Seymour Hoffman can't make sparkle. Heaven knows they try, though.

Hoffman, who until now has played supporting roles in films such as "Boogie Nights" and "Happiness," proves a powerful peer for his macho co-star, even in stiletto heels.

Joel Schumacher has served up a big, steamy Butterball with all the trimmings.

The involvement of several real-life drag queens contributes to both the exhuberence, authenticity, and sheer panache to mark something of a return to form for the idiosyncratic director.

Flawless is a fractured picture, which is its most winning aspect.

Oh. My. God. Who came up with the idea for this piece of junk?

So awful it just might put an end to Hollywood's hypocritical infatuation with men in drag as symbols of its own supposedly liberated sexual attitudes.

Any humanity in the script is diluted to the point of nonexistence by Schumacher's refusal to allow any of his characters to develop beyond the stereotype stage.

You need a pair of huge, hairy ones to make a picture this bad and call it "Flawless."
Jo Berry

A film that should be seen for the acting talent on board rather than its originality (or lack thereof).
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It's a rough, yet playful film with endearing moments, where both hetero's and gays are cherished and ribbed.

Loquacious. Confounding. Asymmetrical. Never-ending. Cliched. Redundant. Logorrheic. Unfunny. Meandering. Blase. And frankly, downright boring, too...
