The soundtrack ruins this film. It wants to celebrate diversity, albeit using minor sexual deviances as the diversities, but becomes so precious it gags on its own good intentions. Lots of sight gags that happen very quickly, so you have to pay attention to find the laughs. Many cute moments. Could have been a lot better than it is.
