I love this movie!! A new camp classic!
Its funny to read these reviews of "StarrBooty" even though I happen to have voiceovers in this film , Id STILL love it anyways
I do the voice of Corneisha, which one reviewer had said they used "real womens voices " to overdub some of the drag queens and transsexuals. haa haa its a man too !!
RuPaul pays homage to John Waters, Tamara Dobson, Pam Grier, Mommie Dearest, The Naked Gun, Paris Is Burning & James Bond in one dynamite thriller!!
made with little to no budget but all great script and kick ass performances of the talent involved. Its important to remember that all of John Waters early films were critically reviled , and took years by word of mouth to make it into the mainstream fringe of cinema.
This project is a dream Ru has had for some time, for the original "Starrbooty" series he made in the 1980s in Atlanta were done with a cam corder and 2 vCr's so this new y2k version is much more stepped up & is shot so well by director Mike Ruiz. its a Great character to run wild and have fun with , RuPaul really delivers.
Candis Cayne from ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" plays the evil cosmetic magnate villain ness Annika Manners so wickedly and fun, absolutely brilliant !
its a bit of a departure for America's drag queen sweetheart , always playing comedy or bit parts on films , to have made such a sexually graphic film that shows the inside world of hooking in Meat market (albeit rather exxxagerated , but not too far off from how its really done..)
Pick up Starrbooty the next time friends are over, its a camp classic! You'll all be quoting lines in no time!
