Resplendent in flamboyant ball gowns, looking down over the vast red Australian desert: for three showgirls it was the dream of a lifetime, a four week cabaret engagement in Alice Springs. The problem is simply getting there intact, along with their bus Priscilla. It's not easy being a drag queen in the outback!

I think I've seen it 50 times... both when I'm low, and when I'm feeling great. It heals, and it aspires. The library has a great LGBTQ film collection!

Good fun in the Australian outback. Just when things get difficult, complex, confusing--all you need is a pretty outfit and a great tune! Great performances by Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving & Guy Pearce. Whatever other memorable roles they have performed, I'm sure being beautiful drag queens was one of their favorites.

This movie is aging well, and sadly still as relevant now as when it was released. Entire cast is very good but Stamp is outstanding.

This is a really enjoyable and fun film. That's not only because it is visually impressive and presents some difficult subject matter in a positive and entertaining way, but also because the actors commit themselves to the roles. Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce, and Terence Stamp do a great job here. Worth watching!

fun movie, with some of the ugliest drag queens on earth. Nonetheless, I saw this in bits & pieces on cable, but glad I got to watch it all the way through. Excellent opportunity to look into the lives of Austrilian female impersonators

This Movie is Wonderful. True to Life. Terence Stamp who is famous for being a Star in the Movie The Collector was brilliant in this movie as a Drag Queen. Good Story, Music and Entertaining.

Great LGBT cult-classic that I finally got around to watching. I suspect this movie will be getting a lot more attention now that it is being produced as a musical as well. The movie is entertaining. Lots of drag performance and glimpses at some of the homophobia that drag queens encounter. Love the pink bus, the emu drag-costumes and catty fights. Enjoyable film.
