Their act, well-known in Sydney, involves wearing lots of makeup and gowns and lip-synching to records, but Bernadette is getting a bit tired of it all and is also haunted by the bizarre death of an old loved one. Nevertheless, when Mitzi and Felicia get an offer to perform in the remote town of Alice Springs at a casino, Bernadette decides to tag along. The threesome ventures into the outback with Priscilla, a lavender-colored school bus that doubles as dressing room and home on the road. Along the way, the act encounters any number of strange characters, as well as incidents of homophobia, while Bernadette becomes increasingly concerned about the path her life has taken.

Great movie about a traveling transvestite dance and cabaret troupe in the Australian outback. Starring Guy Pierce, the group travels by bus around the Aussie outback and get into some zany episodes. Funny and whimsical with some strong language.

This is a campy movie!
Altho' my adult son won't watch it, and the script has a bit too much profanity to suit some, it's a fun-fun-fun movie that'll have you smiling throughout! The guys were really tricked out well for this romp. Hard to imagine what it must have taken to teach them the moves, but they pulled it off! I even bought the soundtrack so I can relive the movie while at work!---And along the way, you'll get to see a bit of Australia. Don't get this if you're easily offended, but it's GREAT if you're liberal-minded and looking for a change of pace.
