Critic Reviews for Outrageous
Audience Reviews for Outrageous
This movie is an odd blend of alternative lifestyles and schizophrenia. Personally I liked it a lot although I suppose there will be folks who feel hit over the head with characters with lives very different from their own. The girls struggle to accept and cope with her own madness by supporting her friend in his own self acceptance is very touching and the movie managed to find a lot of humor in drag queens without ever mocking or belittling them. Not to mention a great happy ending, which you might not expect in this movie.
This historically important early gay film is pleasant but nothing too special, although Russell's impersonations--of Mae West, Judy Garland, Peggy Lee, and so on--are downright uncanny.
Excellent story! Craig Russell was an amazing female impersonator, he had a genuine talent. His impersonation scenes are the best thing in the film. He gives a fine dramatic performance as well. A cool film.
