To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar (1995)

to wong fuBy Scott Goldfine

The public’s fascination with crossdressing continues as Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo play three drag queens traveling across the country in “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar.”

A knockoff of last year’s better Aussie import “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,” this comedy sidesteps reality and is another tame, mainstream Hollywood effort with a few laughs. Also stars Stockard Channing and Blythe Danner. Rated PG-13.
