TO WONG FOO, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING! JULIE NEWMAR
BEEBAN KIDRON | USA | 1995 | 109 MIN | PG-13
All Throwback Thursday Quizzo & Movie Events are 21+ Only
This fabulous fish-out-of-water comedy follows three New York City drag queens—regal ringleader Vida (Patrick Swayze), sassy Noxeema (Wesley Snipes), and their cocky protégé Chi-Chi (John Leguizamo)—as they embark on a cross-country trip to Hollywood for the Miss Drag Queen of America Pageant. When their convertible breaks down in the tiny, middle-American town of Snydersville, the three “career girls” immediately set about winning hearts, overhauling the unsuspecting townspeople’s wardrobes, and learning a thing or two about themselves along the way. With an all-star cast including Stockard Channing, Blythe Danner, and Robin Williams (and a cameo by RuPaul herself!) To Wong Foo is a feel-good tribute to style, substance, and friendship that knows no gender.
Cast: Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes, John Leguizamo, Stockard Channing
