Today’s movie of the day is To Wong Foo, thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar (1995) directed by Beeban Kidron and staring Patrick Swayze (as Vida), Wesley Snipes (as Noxeema) and John Leguizamo (as Chi-Chi).
It is about three dragqueens who are traveling by car from New York City to California and ends up having car trouble along there route. They end up being temporally stranded in a random small town in the middle of America. The three might the best of there time there while their car is getting fixed by encouraging the women of the town to be the inner queen and a more confident lady.
This movie is so much fun! I remember watching this so many times when I was growing up that I seriously have lost count! I always remember that the three leads always brought some kind of brightness in an otherwise drab life. It was either in there wardrobe. Or in their uplifting quirky dialogue. Some of my favorite lines from this movie:
Chi-Chi: “How do I look?”
Noxeema: “Like the Miami Sound Machine just exploded all over you!”
Tommy: “Baby, you are a whole lot of woman…and I know what you need.”
Noxeema: “I hardly think you are the man to give it to me.”
Vida: “Your approval is not needed.”
Noxeem: “Approval neither desired nor required.”
If you are ever doubting yourself or if you find yourself in need a of humorous pick me up. I really recommend this movie.
Fun Fact about this movie: Matt Dillion, James Spader and Rob Lowe were considered to be the three leads in this movie!
Until next time!
