As they finally reach their destination- a shocking secret is revealed about Anthony. As they come to terms with it- they also begin new relationships.


    Review:

    Maybe because i'm from Australia i'm just partial but this is an awesome movie! There are parts that are serious and parts that are definitely inappropriate but this is more a comedy than anything else! This movie was the clincher for Lgbt movies in Australia but i'm not sure how other cultures would view it- it might be useful to look up the locations of the tour to give you an idea of what people in those areas are like. Anyway its really good :P

    I recommend (if you can access this) to watch the Australian series I Will Survive that is based on this film.

    If you do you'll get to see this guy in drag:

    I love this film! It was recommended to me by my university professor a few years ago and I really enjoyed it. Hugo Weaving is the man... or woman!

    I had such a blast watching this movie! The songs, the costumes! And all the crazy bizarre things they get up to!
    Oh and of course Hugo Weaving and Terence Stamp did such a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. It's a great movie for when you're in the mood for fun and karaoke! ^^
