No, it's not all that good, but it's too good hearted to dislike.

Imagine, "Wong Foo" suggests, a world where people stopped judging one another and simply surrendered to the silliness that's dormant inside us.

Carried on the strong shoulders of its protagonists, scene-stealers all, the film succeeds in being fun and even touching, though the story itself is somewhat thin and cliched.

Screenwriter Douglas Carter Beane pilfers not just plot elements from "Priscilla," but also stirs in big chunks of "Fried Green Tomatoes," "Bagdad Cafe," "Auntie Mame," "The Music Man" and "Cinderella."

Improbable as this all sounds, "Wong Foo" is a great deal of fun and a small step forward in Hollywood's depiction of homosexuals.
Alison Macor
Austin Chronicle
January 1, 2000
For some, the film's unabashed sentimentality and fairy-tale quality may go too far, but To Wong Foo is such a delight that it's easy to overlook the few awkward moments.

Although it borrows heavily from last year's Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, To Wong Foo is still quite a bit different and takes cross-dressing into realms I never knew existed.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

The best thing about this movie is all the free advice it offers. As Vida warns before she leaves town, "Believe in yourself, and moisturize - this I cannot stress enough."

For all its message about self-discovery and self-respect, this is really a 100-minute opportunity to titter at hunks in heels.

A politically correct comedy about drag queens? This is the American response to the superior Aussie flick Adventures of Priscilla. Macho Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze, and John Leguizamo can't lift it above the routine.

Leguizamo's Chi Chi is the only one who looks anything like a drag queen, let alone a woman; yet we are asked to believe that it's Swayze's breathy Vida and Snipes' squealing Noxeema who've got their stocking seams straight.
