Worth the watch
This is a cute movie as it lightens your spirit and makes you laugh. An important part of life. The characters are flat and do what is expected but that makes it even more fun to watch. I don’t have to figure out any sub plots and it doesn’t do any brain drain. After a hard day in the office it was a great movie to get my mind off my problems. The drag queens were great. Their costumes and figures are better than most women. David Duchovny as a romantic lead works for me. Nia Vardalos can go up against Meg Ryan for cute and funny in a movie. She does an excellent hometown type leading lady. The plot has enough of a story line to keep you going without getting bored.
Some Like it Tepid
Loser retread of the many spinoffs of Some Like it Hot, featuring bozos on the run from even dumber, bumbling crooks. In this case, they’ve added Victor/Victoria to the mix. Instead of Whoopi as a nun in an earlier Some Like it Hot rip off, we’ve got Nia and Toni as mock drag queens trying to hide out by starting up a dinner theater revue, doing covers of Camp 101 standards like “Papa, Can You Hear Me.” I was hoping I’d at least see Toni do an ABBA cover worthy of her “Muriel’s Wedding;” no such luck.
While the movie’s cutest during the musical numbers, there’s really not much to them, and it doesn’t help the movie recover from the overall hyperbolic directing style – complete with that awful comedy music they’re always playing over every scene in mainstream comedies – because, evidently, otherwise we wouldn’t know the movie’s funny. The performances too, especially among the supporting cast, are completely flat. David Duchovny is a lifeless corpse. Only Madonna in “Shanghai Surprise” brings less life to a role than he does.
Nia brings back the same stereotypes she used in ‘Greek Wedding’ – to the flamboyant drag queens and the provincial WASPS that persecute them.
Anyhow, a few cute moments can’t save this mess. And please, no more remakes of Some Like it Hot.
