The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

Genre: Comedy, Gay and Lesbian; Starring: Bill Hunter, Guy Pearce, Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving; Director: Stephan Elliott; Author: Stephan Elliott; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Gramercy Pictures

Some of the jokes land like bad cabaret, but The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, the Australian smash about three drag queens storming the outback in a pink bus, still has exuberance to spare, plus a lovely turn from Terence Stamp as the wry Bernadette. EXTRAS A making-of doesn’t offer much, but director Stephan Elliott’s commentary compensates with loads of entertaining war stories about the cash-strapped shoot. (Materials for the outrageous Oscar-winning costumes were bought at Kmart.) B+
