YMMV / To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Vida just a drag queen, or is she a transgender woman seeking acceptance? Many comments made by her and other characters imply that she's not just a performer but actually wishes to live as a woman. The movie is vague on this point. It's not unheard of for trans people to use drag as a stepping stone towards living openly.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "Body Beautiful" by Salt N Pepa (edited strangely; you can't tell it's a rap song) playing during the opening credits while the queens are putting on their make up. Words can not describe how perfectly it fits. This song has since become a standard in drag shows.
  • Idiot Plot: Nobody questions the gender of the queens (barring Carol Ann, who has the presence of mind to look for an Adam's apple).
    • It's implied that everyone figured it out on their own by the time Sheriff Dullard showed up, but loved the queens all the same.
    • It seems Bobby Lee and Bobby Ray both learned of it right when Dollard was using the megaphone.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Robin Williams as John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Michael Vartan of Alias and Hawthorne fame plays the roughneck who gets schooled in chivalry by Noxeema.
