Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Don't confuse this film with such child-oriented videocassettes as I Wanna Be a Fireman. The fact that this quasi-documentary is hosted by legendary female impersonator Divine should clue us in as to the age and temperament of its target audience. With his/her usual gift for subtlety and understatement, Divine guides us through the "Alternative Miss World" pageant. We don't want to give the game away, but it's just possible that many of the contestants might not be of the female persuasion. Nice costumes, though.
