Though the sweet, wise-cracking comedy hardly deals in polemics, To Wong Foo marks a watershed moment in queer representation on screen, as a studio movie headlined by major stars...that topped the box office in its first two weeks.

Elite Manhattan drag queens Vida Boheme (Patrick Swayze) and Noxeema Jackson (Wesley Snipes) impress regional judges in competition, securing berths in the Nationals in Los Angeles. When the two meet drag novice Chi-Chi Rodriguez (John Leguizamo)—one of the losers that evening—the charmed Vida and Noxeema agree to take the hopeless youngster under their wings. Soon, the three set off on a madcap road trip across America in an attempt to make it to Los Angeles in time.

Directed by Beeban Kidron.
