Goofs

In her opening invocation, Empress Chi Chi Valenti (Vera Beren) welcomes those assembled for the "fifth annual 'Night of a Thousand Stevies'." However, with the film being set in 2001, it would have actually been the eleventh annual gathering. This is a rather curious error on Valenti's part considering that she serves as the real-life producer and MC of "Night of a Thousand Stevies" and has done so ever since the event was conceived in 1991.

Quotes

Clive: Sex just seems so... messy.
Gypsy: Oh, no, no. Sex can be awesome. Not that I would remember, but...
Clive: Maybe you and I should try.
Gypsy: Yeah, well, I think I'm past my wayward-sex fag-hag test-fuck phase... but thanks for the offer. It's just "been there, done that."
Clive: At least I'd know for sure.
Gypsy: Honey, you're a queer, with a capital "Q."
Clive: Ok, you know what? Some of us don't care to be defined by our sexuality.
Gypsy: Ok, sorry. Can I ask you a question?
Clive: What?
Gypsy: Are you gay?

Great Film, Great Cast, One of my new Favorites
15 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't listen to that naysayer above, she obviously has no taste.

If you want to see a great film that has gay themes, coming of age themes, Goth themes, or are a fan of the great Stevie Nicks, then this is a terrific movie to see.

While there are two scenes of "sex" it's nothing more than you would see if you watched Desperate Housewives.

Karen Black, heroine of the great 70's disaster films, also has a small role in the film, in which she's superb. It's worth seeing just for her alone.

Compared to some of the big budget buddy films out today this one is a rare diamond among the chaff. If you come across it at your local video store don't hesitate to rent it.
