While we were getting the car parked, I was debating on whether or not to bring my camera along & ended up leaving it in the car (I didn't want to look like a tourist)...besides, I didn't think that RuPaul or anyone else famous would be showing up....Boy, was I wrong.
When supermodel/agency operative Starrbooty learns her niece has been kidnapped by her archrival, Annaka Manners, Starrbooty's only option is to go undercover as a street hooker to rescue her. The only snag in our heroine's plan is that in order to infiltrate the prostitution underworld she has to gain street credibility by going "all the way" with the johns. This time, deep cover threatens to unravel Starrbooty at her very core because this time, not only is it personal but she also discovers secrets about her true identity that she wasn't supposed to know.
Starrbooty is sexy, sassy and salacious.
This movie is jam-packed with delicious dialogue, insane characters, outrageous costumes and gratuitous hair and make-up. RuPaul says: "The goal here was to make an exploitation film that was part Russ Meyer, John Waters and "The Naked Gun" and we succeeded."
As I was waiting in the concession line for a Diet Coke, I heard the queens in the lobby gasp in unison...RuPaul had just arrived & my damn camera was in the car! Arrggh!...She spent about 20 minutes taking pics with some of the fans...and my camera was in the car!
The Amazonian drag queen, decked out in a floor length, colorful sequined gown & white afro wig, was accompanied by the director of the movie, Mike Ruiz (see pic below)...hubba hubba!
This movie was hilarious, hysterical, over the top, and includes kung-fu fighting, impromptou dance routines, and a whole bunch of full-frontal male nudity from some gay porn stars (hello Michael Lucas!)
Starrbooty is a definite nod to Blaxploitation films, and I think even Pam Grier would be proud.
There's a whole lot of funny one liners, and some of the follow up quips were lost whenever the audience went wild with laughter (which was quite often).
If you get a chance, check this movie out!
