A review about a good tranny movie requires a decent song. Enjoy RuPaul’s ‘Sexy Drag Queen’ while you read 🙂
WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
It’s a rare thing to find a movie that you could watch a thousand times over, but I think I’ve found that in Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives. I don’t even like rape and revenge movies but this movie managed to take the theme and completely turn it on its head and play out a revenge fantasy that is simultaneously unnerving at times and full of sassy comments at every twist and turn. A lot of people have complained that this movie makes light of the violence perpetrated against transgendered people, but it really doesn’t. The issues are there and the issues are real; this movie just chooses to portray them differently so that you don’t feel like you’re sitting through an hour-and-a-half lecture. And let’s be honest: with a title like Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives, there was no way this movie wasn’t going to be awesome.
It’s a busy night at the club for our girls Rachel Slurr, Emma Grashun, Tipper Sommore, Bubbles Cliquot and their drag mother Pinky La’Trimm. Before the show starts we meet all the girls getting into their outfits and getting their hair did just right, all the while discussing their newest love interests. Fascinating world views are exchanged and the system of naming children in an Hispanic household is explained in great detail, but the biggest point of interest right now is Bubbles’ black eye. The other girls debate about who could have done this to her, agreeing that she must be seeing someone who has taken to beating her. Pinky doesn’t care who’s done it or why, preferring rather to offer Bubbles her service in kick assery should it be needed. Once the tears are dried and makeup applied with a trowel the girls go out and give their performances before setting off to the local watering hole for some gossip and relaxation.
What was meant to be a relaxing evening of cocktails and man hunting is about to take a horrible turn for the worse. Rachel and Emma have found their male companions for the evening in the form of Chuey and Nacho, but they have a friend that also needs a little lovin’, so the girls trick Bubbles into going along with them to an abandoned warehouse to party it up with the boys. Just as the girls are getting comfortable Chuey and Nacho’s friend Boner appears from the shadows, much to Bubbles’ shock. See this was the man who not only beat her but raped her as well and now he’s still out for revenge. Why exactly is he seeking revenge on dear Bubbles? Because, from the waist down, she’s not a woman. The three men proceed to violently beat the girls while Bubbles tries her best to get hold of Pinky. Pinky and Tipper rock up at the warehouse to help Bubbles do battle but they are also attacked by the men, and everything fades to black.
When Bubbles wakes up from her coma in the hospital she finds out from Pinky and Rachel that Emma and Tipper have been murdered. On top of this Bubbles has lost her voice as a result of the beating Boner gave her. She regains her voice a little later on, but with a very apparent lisp. The 3 surviving girls try to go back to their lives as best they can, but Boner soon starts rocking up at the club they work at and it becomes apparent that he isn’t just going to leave them alone. So the girls devise a plan to lure Boner, Chuey and Nacho to Bubbles’ house where they will be taught a good, hard lesson in manners and respecting the strength of trannies everywhere. How will they learn this lesson? Well, if you live by the sword you must die by the sword. And those trannies have a lot of leather, glitter and lube at their disposal to teach this lesson effectively.
If I haven’t said so already, go watch this movie. It’s rare to be squirming and laughing all at the same time, but it really is a delightful feeling. And again, it’s Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives, what’s not to love?
