Storyline

Walt Koontz, a homophobic guy, ends up with paralyzed vocal cords because of an unfortunate stroke. His therapy includes receiving singing lessons from a neighbor who is not only openly flamboyant but also a pre-op transgenderist. Both of them are equally prejudiced; Koontz against homosexuals and the neighbor against close-minded straight people. Written by Rob Reser - The Movie Kid - <moviekid@filmspot.com>

Flawful!
26 September 2000 | by (Miami, Fl) – See all my reviews

This one definitely did not live up to its name! I did find a few flaws in Joel Schumacher's latest film `Flawless.' The movie's plot is about a homophobic police officer who suffers a stroke, and later turns to a neighboring cross-dresser for speech therapy. Unfortunately, Schumacher's way-too-lengthy direction and mundane screenplay made `Flawless' an almost `unjoelful ' event. And that is a tragedy because we know that all Joel's events are joyful don't we? Anyways, the flawless feature of the film was the superb acting of Phillip Seymour Hoffman as the crossdresser and Robert Deniro as the hompophobic cop. But that is somewhat expected from these flawless performers. Despite this, `Flawless' is still a flick that you should definitely not flaw into. ** Needs Improvement
