      Tu Wong Foo,Thanks for Everything is a 1995 comedy/drama film.It follows three drag queens to a drag queen pageant in Hollywood by car.Noxeema and Vida won the trip to Hollywood but are taking a depressed Latin drag queen who with them to the competition hoping to give her confidence.On the way to the competition,they run into a homophobic cop who mistakes Vida for a woman.He attempts sexual harassment on Vida.He discovers Vida is a male but is knocked unconscious by Vida.Vida and the other drag queens are then able to escape.Unfortunately on the way to their competition,their car breaks down in a small town.They are able to find somebody to fix it but must wait in the town for for the weekend until it is.Meanwhile,they get acquainted with the members of the town.They form friendships with many women in the town including a woman abused by her husband.They spend their time bonding with the woman and help them to gain

      confidence in their lives by showing them how to have a good time,helping them organize a fun festival and giving them makeovers.

      Vida forms a close bond with a woman named Carol and even beats up Carol’s husband Virgil when he starts beating Carol .Chi Chi eventually falls in love with a young man named Bobby Ray.However,there is another young woman who is attracted to Bobby Ray.Chi Chi does not want to end the relationship with Bobby Ray.However,Bobby Ray claims that Chi Chi is honest and wouldn’t lie to him about anything.Chi Chi realizes that Bobby does not know Chi Chi is really a man.Chi Chi dosen’t want to keep this secret away from Bobby.

      However,she is terrified of telling him so she lets the girl attracted to Bobby date him.While the three drag queens are in the small town,the homophobic police officer is looking for them and trying to convict them.He has no success until he meets Virgil in a bar.Virgil knows what ...


      • kind of girl the police officer is looking for and leads him to the small town where they are.When the police man reaches the town,he demands,Noxeema,Vida and Chi Chi to reveal themselves.Fortunately,all the townspeople they befriended defend them by claiming they are all drag queens.The police officer becomes irritated by this and decides to give up looking for Vida,Noxeema and Chi Chi.Eventually,the three drag queens get their car fixed and head back to Hollywood.It turns out,Chi Chi wins the drag queen competition and starts to feel confident about herself.

        To Wong Foo was a very entertaining and intelligent movie.It’s main point was that all people should be accepted no matter what their sexual or gender preference is.Thisi idea is presented clearly in the film when the townspeople stand up for the three drag queens when the homophobic police officer is looking for them.Also,the film deals with issues of intolerance.For example,the polic officer chasing after the drag queens is homophobic and not tolerant of

        drag queens.He is an example of a lot of people who are not tolerant of alternate lifestyles that drag queens have.The film also deals with treating women with respect.For example,at one point in the film,a group of men attempt to sexually assault Chi Chi.Fortunately,she is rescued by Bobby Ray.Despite Chi Chi being a man,the men who attacked him really thought she was a woman and thought of her as a sexual object.There was another scene in the film in which Virgil,a mechanic in the small town started beating his wife.This and the other scene show that some men can be really insensitive and disrespectful with women.Something I also like about the film is that it deals with issues of confidence.Chi Chi, a Latino drag queen is first depressed and unhappy and the beginning of the film because she dosen’t feel like a pretty drag queen.During the film,she is taken under the wing of Noxeema and Vida who help give her confidence and self love..
