    Not a great, breakout comedy, but more the kind of movie that might eventually become a regular on the midnight cult circuit.
  2. 70
    Not as skillful, subtle, or hilarious as "Some Like It Hot," but its anti-essentialism vis-à-vis gender roles is just as sharp and exhilarating.
  3. 60
    So campy it reflexively sends an elbow to its own ribs.
  4. 40
    The opening moments of -- are some of the funniest --the rest of the movie beats you over the head with jokes, and though funny in parts, it's never this smart again.
  5. Tries to be both poignant and wicked, and succeeds at neither.
  6. 30
    Even with the outlandish characters, gaudy colors and gay satire, this smug John Waters knockoff can't stand up to the real thing.
  7. Poisonously smug, one-joke indie comedy.
