Part of the great American road trip canon, TO WONG FOO, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING! JULIE NEWMAR is an open-hearted and festive comedy. The fact that a quarter-century after its release, it could still be considered a subversive act is indicative of the kind of heightened overreaction the queer community has been dealing with for too long. Never underestimate the presence of Stockard Channing in a film as a touchstone of unfathomable emotional strength, and clarity of purpose.
“[It] suggests a world where people stopped judging one another and simply surrendered to the silliness that's dormant inside us.” —Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle “Three snaps up for Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo, who walk the walk, and work it….” —Joe Brown, Washington Post
