CGiii Comment

What an odd film...written by Sondheim & Perkins, two game-loving queens.
 
Initially, it starts off as a game of spot-the-poof - not terribly difficult (think: Village People clone)...then, it becomes a bitchy feast of Hollywood back-stabbing.
 
It is a little convoluted and massively dated...but, with such big names, it remains a joy to watch.
