  1. Good ain't the half of it in this case - it's funny, it's endearing, it's strangely touching. [19 Aug 1994]
  2. The generosity and gorgeousness with which Aussie writer-director Stephan Elliott (and costume designers Lizzy Gardiner and Tim Chappel) turn this most unlikely road picture into something arresting - if a tad sentimental - in its naive vision of a perfectly tolerant world.

I have it in my movie collection. This is by no means one of those Hollywood blockbusters. Although at times it feels slow, it is still engaging and witty. Dialogues are sharp and humorous while there is always an ingredient of sentimentality and nostalgy . The movie deals with themes as frienship, love, passion, betrayal, trust, compassion. Hence, it is much more than just another gay comedy for it is a film that explores the different human dimensions. Overall, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, is endearing, touching, and enlightening. It is powerful, without being over emotional or cheesy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
