Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In Warhol/Morrissey collaborations, such as this spoof of porn films, it is often more useful to describe the personalities shown on the screen, than to try to describe the story. All the women in this film are desperately tired of men. All of them are transvestites. Some of them are very improbable transvestites, such as Jackie Curtis, who has a booming bass voice. Others are so decadent that their gender is immaterial. Holly Woodlawn is an example of this ilk. However, whatever story there is devolves around the ambitions of poor little rich "girl" Candy Darling, who wants to be a film star, but must spend most of her time fending off the unnatural attentions of women's libbers. The actors, whose material is improvised, are occasionally quite witty, and the sendups of sex scenes and Darling's experiences on the casting couch show a good satirical sensibility.
