They head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla. En route, it is discovered that the woman they’ve contracted with is Anthony’s wife.

The zingers keep the film from being another fluffy feel good comedy about drag queens. As a road movie, it essentially distills down to an outsiders finding their company with other outsiders. The scene in which the trio perform with the aborigines is touching without being entirely saccharine. Terrance Stamp steals the show though Hugo and Guy Pierce performances keep up, in and out of drag.
