This is a really enjoyable and fun film. That's not only because it is visually impressive and presents some difficult subject matter in a positive and entertaining way, but also because the actors commit themselves to the roles. Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce, and Terence Stamp do a great job here. Worth watching!

fun movie, with some of the ugliest drag queens on earth. Nonetheless, I saw this in bits & pieces on cable, but glad I got to watch it all the way through. Excellent opportunity to look into the lives of Austrilian female impersonators

This Movie is Wonderful. True to Life. Terence Stamp who is famous for being a Star in the Movie The Collector was brilliant in this movie as a Drag Queen. Good Story, Music and Entertaining.

Great LGBT cult-classic that I finally got around to watching. I suspect this movie will be getting a lot more attention now that it is being produced as a musical as well. The movie is entertaining. Lots of drag performance and glimpses at some of the homophobia that drag queens encounter. Love the pink bus, the emu drag-costumes and catty fights. Enjoyable film.
