    Everyone deserves someone who'll tell them that pursuing their passions makes them more desirable, not less.

    It perhaps says something about how frustrating RoboCop 2 was that this one is a straight-up children's film probably greenlit mainly to sell toys, and I'd struggle to say that it's worse overall.

    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

    Pros:
    - Super fun.
    - A smart depiction of queer people in a rural setting.
    - Heartwarming messages about how queer people can be good parents & overcoming internalized homophobia.
    - Cool trans lady character complete with righteous anger.
    - ABBA!

    Cons:
    - Trans woman played by cis man.
    - Weird running joke about deadnaming the trans character.
    - Exhausting racist-as-fuck subplot goes on forever.
    - Too visually distinctive and fun to remake easily, forcing us to sit through the deadnaming and racism because the rest of it is actually good.
