Summary: Snipes's worst yet.
So you take two respectable actors, Snipes and Swayze, and you make them dress up in drag and run this gag into the fucking ground. Meanwhile your marketing wizards come up with a title that's just too damn long. Result? Horrible.

Summary: Not Horrible - Shows Versatility
It's not easy for at least 2 of the "macho" actors to pull off feminine wilds. I did enjoy Swayze in "Halston" - very elegant. John Leguizamo has done it before in his stand up act. John is wonderful. There were some moments about alternate lifestyle acceptance (the only serious moment, but something that always needs to be addressed). I liked the plot. . . coming to Stockard Channing's recscue was noble and a macho moment. It wasn't supposed to be Oscar material. It was supposed to be light and entertaining. It was successful. We can't have too many heavy movies! Oh and it's "To Wong Foo". . .

Summary: One of my favs!!!
It takes a real man to pull off playing a gay man, much less a believable drag queen. As a woman who used to work the local drag shows in a large city as a dresser, I can assure you that these men did as accurate portrayal of drag queens as I have ever seen. The fact that two of the three men are action stars boggles the mind, but this does not seem to affect their performance in any way. Swazye and Snipes are true professionals, with no macho BS getting in the way of thier wonderful charactors. I salute them all. You go, girls!!!

Summary: Love this movie
Just love this movie. I would have never watched this movie, but I heard that Clinton administration was upset because Officer Dullard looked like Bill and I had to see what the stink was about. But, I lave this move. People read way too much into it. It is a great movie about friendship and building relationships. I watch it all the time.

Summary: Compassionate, Funny, Understanding
This is one of my favorite movies. It was delightful to see Patrick dressed up and I could not imagine him to pull it off. What a beautiful woman Patrick made. Puts me to shame even in my good days. I love that it also had the sensitivity to not use other people for our own wants when it comes to love or passion. And yes we all deserve love. I am a peaceful person and do not like violence but when violence was brought into play I cheered just as loudly as the loudest woman. I was also happy about the bonding of all the women. We need to learn to do that and not let the governments and churches pull our string to do otherwise. sherryl-annette PeaceWriter

Summary: Oh my gawd
This is by far the best movie I have ever seen. I watch this movie every night. How they got Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes in drag is beyond my imagination. In my own litte world though, Chi-Chi, Vida, and Noxeema will always be real characters.

Summary: A modern day "Wizard of Oz"
A little background about me first. I am a "hetero" family man, living only miles from this movie's filming location. I am secure with who I am, and I believe any other man that is also can relax and enjoy this uniquely funny movie that says: Nebraskans really can be fair-minded!

Summary: ridiculously bad
I'm not a drag queen, but I do know that they don't dress in drag all day long everyday as if they were actually women. It's a persona they put on when they go out or are in a show. I hardly think they would drive across the country dressed like that.
