CGiii Comment

Written by Carl Andress & Charles Busch - over Skype - throughout the 'cockdown'...did they have a bad connection?

Then, when 'cockdown' relaxed, they went into full production...what was the rush, luvvies? Anyway, this is the result...

Charles Busch is a performer [of considerable repute]...stick to what you do best, love. Playing the 'straight' man - in and out of women's clothing - was bemusing rather than amusing. That's the problem with this film as a whole...it's totally daft and rigorously unfunny. Over-acted by most of the supporting cast...and, surprisingly under-acted by Mr Busch. 

Not since 2006 has Mr Busch co-written and helmed a film...it may have been more prudent to have used those years developing and honing a script worthy of the many talents that Mr Busch has in his closet...rather than unleashing this hurried and harried howler.
