* 1/2*

Joel Schumacher directs this comedy-drama from his own script. A retired security guard (Robert DeNiro) suffers a stroke. His rehabilitation involves singing lessons...from the drag queen next door (Phillip Seymour Hoffman). Rory Cochrane, Barry Miller, Wilson Jermaine Heredia and Daphne Rubin Vega also star.

Capsule Review: Flawless is flawed: it's a film with a good heart, but a bad screenplay. De Niro and Hoffman do wonders with the one-dimensional characters they're given, and nearly make this odd couple work. However, the script never simply lets the actors shine, but keeps returning to a needless subplot about a druglord and his stolen money.

[R - pervasive language and strong violence] (MGM)
