As a film, this is pretty straight forward. Not much drama happens. Life moves on ok and Robin easily reaches success and gets love from viewers. There is not much of a conflict in his life and its refreshing to see that. Robin does a great job of female impersonator but there were so many places where i couldn't stop laughing because how as a drag queen she would never stop moving her body or flutter her eyes. It was so distracting but all in good fun. The relationship between the two actors is ok but not very convincing, especially it wasn't clear to me on why would Robin go all the way out to help and support her, when they didn't even look that close together.
The film was slightly dated for me so I couldn't enjoy it as much as some others would. (4.5/10)
