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.
This is, without a doubt, the most accurate film I have ever seen when it comes to Marine Corps boot camp. I spent eight years active duty, and went through Paris Island. Everything that was shown in the film actually happened, EXCEPT the D.I. (drill instructor) getting shot. And yes, we had a sucide where a guy blows his brains out. I went through the old wooden barracks, rather than the fancy barracks shown in the film, but everything else is 100 percent accurate.
