Aro Recommended But I'm a Cheerleader


USA 1999, 89 minutes
Dir. Jamie Babbitt
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy / LGBT, Lesbian


Aroview: A camp comedy in both style and setting, cheerleading teen Natasha Lyonne is suspected by her God-fearing parents to be a lesbian, and is thus marched off to a correctional facility called 'True Directions' to be 'straightened out'.

The reverse gender plays and forced chastity gags carry the day-glo hue and simple plea for tolerance of John Waters' more innocuous suburban satires. Clea Duvall and Melanie Lynsky figure among the 'dykes', Richard Moll and Rupaul Charles among the 'faggots'.
