I guess we only care about boys any more if they're not masculine. Boring woke nonsense.

I highly recommend your kids DO Not Watch this. Musicals are fun but this is literally over the top PC BS. There is no real story it is just catering only to the Woke Crowd. Go watch a real entraining Drag movie like priscilla queen of the desert. That at least had good writing, acting and music.

Enough trash Amazon.

Wow. The world didn't need this we already have RuPaul, and LGBTQ community needs to give the world the "rainbow" back, you don't own the 🌈. I have gay people in my family whom I love, but this is just TRASH.

Much more than a gay coming out film

Jamie is already out and contemplating what he wants to be after graduation. He’s grown up in a small, blue collar town where most kids are looking at joining the business of their parents. His best friend is the only Muslim in class and she wants to be a doctor. They’ve banded together for protection against the bullies and hecklers. His parents are split, Mom has a girlfriend, Dad is remarried and is embarrassed by him but Jamie is oblivious to that fact, as well as others. Once he decides to actively pursue his dream to become a drag queen, the movie takes off.

Much of the film is told by way of song and it’s done well. Many of the tunes are reworked from the stage version done in 2017. Max Harwood and Sarah Lancashire are good as mother and son and Lauren Patel is exceptional as the feisty best friend.

Singing, dancing, acting - it’s all reminiscent of Billy Elliot and earlier feel good musicals from MGM, except for the subject. There’s not a bunch of political wokeness being hammered repeatedly. Attention is more focused on relationships between people that are supposed to love, care and accept each other and how to get thru when that system breaks down.

In the end, this is a feel good movie that runs the full gamut of emotions from broken to victorious 🍿
