Bam Bam and Celeste
Jess McCabe // 18 April 2005
According to the press release, “In Bam Bam and Celeste, Celeste (Margaret Cho) and Bam Bam (Bruce Daniels) escape their Midwest hometown on an epic road trip to New York City. There they take on their high-school nemeses \x96 now the dictators of the world-famous Salon Mirage \x96 and discover that true beauty lies within.”
If the plot doesn’t get you going, this will (assuming that you’ve heard/seen Cho’s standup. If you haven’t you really should.) “Along with Celeste, Margaret also plays Mommy, the impersonation of her own mother cherished by Margaret\x92s fans.”
If only it wasn’t aeons until the thing hits the UK’s cinema screens.
