well timed, but totally flat
8 January 2011 | by mjneu59See all my reviews

Ten years after making their first, brave stand against an uncaring world, fellow misfits Robin and Liza (a professional drag queen and a runaway schizophrenic) are reunited in what should have been a timely sequel to the poignant and funny 1977 sleeper 'Outrageous!' But this time around writer director Dick Benner exhausted all his creativity on the cute title, leaving not much else to look at besides an embarrassing show business soap opera, with Robin poised on the brink of drag stardom but finding his integrity jeopardized by the demands of fame and fortune. Hardly an outrageous (or even original) concept, and to make it worse the film unfolds with all the conviction of a substandard TV drama. Benner wants to portray gay life without the usual silver screen stereotypes (psycho-fag killers, swishy comic relief), but the effort forces him into cardboard clichés and overwrought theatrics, to the point where even the ongoing tragedy of AIDS is reduced to the level of a grade school melodrama. In the end Benner does to his own scenario what the talent agency does to Robin's stage act in the film: flattening it into two very drab dimensions.
