'A queer romp': The reviews for lesbian road trip comedy 'Drive-Away Dolls' are in

Drive-Away Dolls, a new lesbian road trip comedy directed by Ethan Coen and starring Margaret Qualley andGeraldine Viswanathan, has garnered many positive reviews for its 'unabashedly queer romp' of a plot and 'extremely charming' leads.

The movie, which tells the story of an impulsive road trip taken by a lesbian cop and a straight-laced bird watcher after they steal a mysterious briefcase, has been praised for its 'goofiest, loosest' comedy and 'sauntering' pace.

The variety of queer characters featured in the film, including a sex-hungry lesbian, a gay gang leader, and a psychedelic appearance by Miley Cyrus, have all been noted as 'wearing its sapphic colours loud and proud.'

While some reviews point out that the film's multiple plotlines and short runtime 'meanders' at times, the 'charm' and chemistry between the two leads keep the audience 'invested.'

'Drive-Away Dolls is just a good time,' said one critic. 'It wears its queer romance on its sleeve, delivering a bawdy sapphic joyride that hits all the right spots,' said another, with several reviewers particularly praising the film's explicit lesbian humor and 'saturation of dick jokes.'

The film's portrayal of a 'maturing' queer relationship has also been noted as a positive development, with one review stating that the film 'evolves rather than regresses' its queer characters.

'Drive-Away Dolls' is now playing in US theaters and will be released in the UK on March 15.
