Bam Bam & Celeste
If you have ever felt like an outcast, you will see yourself in this movie. Classic Cho, Bam Bam & Celeste takes up Margaret's perennials themes of friendship, individuality, and accepting yourself for who and what you are, and weaves them into a comic gem that will lift the spirits of the down trodden.
Bam Bam & Celeste follows two friends since high school, Bam Bam (Bruce Daniels) a flamboyantly gay hairdresser and Celeste (Margaret Cho) a down on herself fag hag, as they drive across America to appear on the make over show, Trading Faces. One of the highlights of the film is Margaret in costume as her mother.
If you do not share Margaret Cho's or Bruce Daniels' sense of humor, you may miss the many jokes, puns, and digs at GLBT culture. This tale of a queen and his fag hag is an owner for me. I don't think I could have enjoyed it more.
