Newt's movie review

Purposely camp, it includes every stereotype and misconception of gays and lesbians. It's filled with spoof and parody and technocolour! There's a brilliant blend of the 50s and 90s styles that says way more than any dialogue ever could. I don't think it's destined for Cult Classic status, but it is a lot of fun.
