What I wanted, and I Want More!

My sister and I are RuPaul's Drag Race junkies, and this delivered. It has a lot of campy moments, and even when it's "serious," I wonder if The Rio made that choice to laugh at cheap television movies. One scene in particular, Del Rio chats up a rough day at work with her mentor in her car. From the camera angle, I'm suspicious they were sitting in plastic chairs in post production. I'm pretty certain of it, and it was worth a chuckle. Loved Bianca Del Rio the second she walked in to Ru's Race. Can we get a series of these?! I want Alyssa Edwards competing in a Texas Beauty Pageant like Miss Congeniality in drag, and I want an Alaska crash landing on Earth and trying to fit in. I'll take a whole set of these! Please have Katya in Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia With Hate.

So funny
Verified purchase
I love this movie. It’s my happy place. It’s definitely not for everyone as the plot is delightfully ridiculous. But Bianca, Bianca Leigh, Rachel Dratch, Shangela, and Willam are all fabulous in it, and the cameos from Alan Cumming and especially Margaret Cho are delightful. It’s just so obvious that everyone on the set had a ball making this film. I'll keep watching it to make bad days better.

Bravo!!!

This movie was made very tongue in cheek to raise awareness of the fact that it is legal in 29 states to fire someone for being gay. Very well written by Matt Kugelman and played out very well by the beloved Bianca Del Rio, the Season 6 winner of "RuPaul's Drag Race." Rachel Dratch plays opposite of Bianca and is hysterical in her roll!

A do not miss for Bianca Del Rio fans and an enjoyable hour and a half full of laughter for those who haven't met her yet! Bravo Matt Kugelman for bringing light to this important issue!

Could have been better.

It was a group of actors that were not ready to be actors. I applaud then for their efforts. It had some funny moments. I guess everyone has to start somewhere. A few one liners really landed but many set ups weee just too long or over done. That being said this is a great B movie that many will enjoy. The other drag queens were not used very well. Willam as lady Gaga was a bust. I don't think many would enjoy seeing shangela in anything. Alyssa Edwards is always fun but didn't get used well. They should have had any number of drag queens that really being an A game.

You have to understand drag first
Verified purchase
This movie actually touches on a problem that happens in the United States in certain conservative states: it's illegal to be employed if gay. It's a VERY interesting twist on resolution in the end, but one that comes with drag humor. If you don't watch drag race, the approach of the main character seems very brash and unorthodox, but that's the personality of the main actor/actress in real life. Search "Bianca del Rio" interview, and her approach to the interviews is the exact same as the movie. You have to understand the humor that comes into drag to enjoy the movie; I watch drag shows and drag race, so it's familiar, but still funny.

This 1st BDRio film I watched is one of a few Go To films I watch for good laughs, cheering up.

RH/BDRio needs to do some more Hurricane Bianca films. Come on Wolf films, you can do another film with BDR. With this film, Hurricane Bianca, and the follow up, Hurricane Bianca: From Russia with Hate. Fun, fun, fun.

LOVE THIS MOVIE
Verified purchase
It's such a fun movie. If you're a fan of Bianca Del Rio or just drag queens in general you'll love it. It's such a sweet and funny movie, even people who know nothing about the drag world will enjoy it. It's worth buying the second movie so you can do a double feature.

Bianca
Verified purchase
I've watched it 3 times already! I'm high school science teacher and despite not being a drag queen (I wish I was that fabulous *lol*) I could definitely relate! Bianca is hilarious... but despite her "insult queen" persona the movie is also a "feel good" movie that lightens the spirit. Great story and filming. Come on Hollyrude... It's time to see a Hurricane Bianca sequel released on the big screen.... maybe even 3-D! I can't even imagine what craziness she would do with that!
