Trivia

According to director/writer commentary track on the Region 1 DVD, the original performances of the stage play from which the movie is based featured 'Charles Busch' in the role of Florence/Chicklet. When Busch adapted his play to film format, he was too old to play Chicklet, so he wrote for himself the part of Captain Monica Stark so he could still participate in the production. See more »

Very Good Movie. PERIOD.
6 August 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

A great movie with a lot of great performances by the cast. Especially Lauren Ambrose (Florence/Chicklet), who after seeing this movie, definitely deserves a lot more recognition. Recognition, I hope, that comes soon. Same goes to the whole cast also, who really made this low budget beach movie into my eyes, a hit. So please, if you have time, and live in New York, stop by to watch this great movie. You won't be disappointed.
