To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar Reviews
May 20, 2020
To Wong Foo itself struck me as a confused movie. The film had its heart in the right place in that it was trying to make popular audiences like these characters. But in the process of trying to normalize them, it removed all their sexuality.

It just felt like I wanted to see more from these characters toward the end...that's why we started on this journey in the first place...

A moderately amusing effort with a marquee-challenging moniker.

The film was so phony that not even the drag queens looked real.

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.

Kidron's direction stays flat even when the actors are funny. It doesn't help that the screenplay, by Douglas Carter Beane, is so thin that one of its biggest events is the three main characters' having car trouble.

Leguizamo and Swayze - and especially Snipes - just seem like Hollywood stars putting on a cabaret show. There is never any sense that these guys are real people.
