    Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo star as three "girls" who just wanna have fun in a hilarious comedy about repairing broken hearts, broken dreams and broken nails. En route from New York City to Hollywood for a drag queen beauty pageant, Noxeema (Snipes), Vida (Swayze) and Chi Chi (Leguizamo) are forced to take an unwelcome detour when their 1967 Cadillac convertible breaks down. Stranded in the tiny midwestern town of Snydersville, the three try to make the best of their unfortunate circumstance. And when their glitz and glamour wake up the sleepy local citizens, the stage is set for an outrageously funny weekend. Also starring Stockard Channing and Blyth Danner, this marvelous mix of flamboyant fun and unrefined simpleness erupts into plenty of laughs in "The Best Comedy of the Year!" (Interview)

    One year after the success of the 1994 Australian film "The Adventures Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", Amblin Entertainment and Universal Pictures joined to produce the 1995 American version, "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar". Like the Australian film, which featured a trio of drag queens traveling across the rugged Australian outback from Sydney to the isolated resort of Alice Springs in a pink bus, the American version featured its own drag queen trio traveling from NYC to Los Angeles in an aging yellow Cadillac convertible; but the similarities end there. The drag queen trio featured in the American version was Miss Noxeema Jackson (Wesley Snipes), Miss Vida Boheme (Patrick Swayze) and Miss Chi-Chi Rodriguez (John Leguizamo). After Noxeema and Vida share the title of a drag queen contest, they invite (with Noxeema's reluctance) Chi-Chi to join them to participate in a national contest in Los Angeles. Not having enough money for all three to fly to Los Angeles from NYC, Vida convinces them to instead use their winnings to purchase a car that all three could travel in. The film's title comes from an autographed picture of Julie Newmar that Vida steals from a restaurant and places in the used yellow Cadillac convertible that the trio purchases. Similar to the Australian version, the car breaks down along the way, forcing the trio to stay a few days in a small, languishing town. There, they meet the town's assorted residents that include hotel owner Carol Ann (Stockard Channing), her abusive husband Virgil (Arliss Howard), Beatrice (Blythe Danner), the polite Bobby Ray (Jason London), Merna (Melinda Dillon), Loretta (Beth Grant), the aging Clara (Alice Drummond) and restaurant owner Jimmy Joe (Mike Hodge) to name a few.

    5.0 out of 5 stars To "Good" To Wong Foo April 27, 2000
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
    This was one of the most uplifting movies I've ever seen. After seeing the movie Seven, I went to see To Wong Foo and laugh from the beginning to the end. The outfits were just wonderful. I especially loved Patrick Swayze's clothes. John Leguziamo was just sassy as Miss Chi Chi. Wesley Snipps had it going on as Noxema Jackson. I've seen this movie so many times I can recite the whole script. Director Beeban Kidron did an excellent job. Stockard Channing's performance was excellent as Caroline. This is the perfect movie for depression. Im still hoping for a sequel. If it doesn't happen, I will never get tired of re-watching To Wong Foo Thanks for everything Julie Newmar.

    4.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY IN YOUR FACE DRAG HOWEVER... March 17, 2003
    Format:DVD
    The movie itself is still great (but not a great as The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) but the DVD version is disappointing.
    When I found out that it was going to contain deleted scenes, I was hoping that they would have been included in the movie. Instead they group them together as an extra. Granted after watching those scenes, it was understandable why they were deleted and/or changed. The only scene I would have added is when the "girls" are driving up the mountain and the car stalls and a truck was barreling down on them.
    I have always enjoyed this movie. Wesley Snipes is hysterical as Noxeema Jackson (Jessie's daughter). His one liners and acid like tongue were perfect. Patrick Swayze was very matronly as Vida Boheme. The too tall drag queen that still has her driver's license with the name of Eugene on it. John Leguizamo was the most brilliant of everyone. He was so outrageous and razor edged funny (not to mention you had to think if it was really a woman playing Chi-Chi). He was the struggling would be drag queen who describes herself as the "Latino Marilyn Munroe-I got more legs than a bucket of chicken."
    Basically the movie is your typical need to be accepted and proving the odds wrong.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine, Fun and Snazzy Film, anything but a Drag! February 1, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    This movie is one of those rare perfect films. Casting is brilliant (especially Stockard Channing, who only gets better and better as the years go by--and she was always totally incapable of less than a fantastic performance). The general plot line of the movie is a congenial road trip, as three drag queens drive from New York City to California to compete in a contest, and the themes are fulfilling.
    In essence, the movie deals with the healing of "broken people." (For other such films, see such gems as "Batteries Not Included" and "Fried Green Tomatoes.") The unlikely angels? The three drag queens. The situation? Their car breaks down in a red-neck hamlet. Unlikely hijinks and dangerous confrontations lead to a satisfying conclusion.
    And Julie Newmar was never better!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Maltin, GET ANOTHER JOB. December 3, 2000
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape
    This will be short and sweet. This is one of the cutest movies going. It's taken me five long years to catch up and finally check it out. It's such a gem of a story and I laughed my head off through the whole thing. I'm so sick and tired of L. Maltin saying he hates most of the movies that the rest of the public love. Thank God I don't listen to CRITICS, if I did, I'd never see anything. This is SO SWEET. Cute, but I guess you can't be homophobic and appreciate the gem. These three men act more like "chicks" than any female I've known, including myself. Three drag queens, excellent acting, great and silly plot. Patrick Swaze, Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo (sp) how they could do it, is beyond me. People in dire straits being helped by stranded Chi-Chi, Noxy and Vida; "women" who end up in a hick town of "red necks" and add much needed color and life to a dying town. I'm so glad I check out every one of the "editorial reviews" and every time ole Leonard hates it, I know I'll absolutely LOVE IT! Don't listen to him or anyone else who tells you it's no good. I don't know who he thinks he is......Look at the customer reviews AGAIN! (4 - 5 stars) we can't all be wrong and he be right, eh? He has no clue as to what's funny and light hearted. Get another job. I'm so upset I can't write anymore, nor do I need to.
