This made-for-Showtime attempt to pull heartstrings features Rhames as the title character, a Diana Ross-loving, churchgoing drag queen with June Cleaver values. A softhearted sucker for dysfunctional souls, Holiday takes in homeless mother Wanda (Woodard), a junkie with a penchant for bad men, and her 12-year-old daughter, Niki, from the street, and moves them into his duplex. While Rhames transcends his manly-man looks to develop a credible glam persona, the story arc lacks depth, and the instant-family intimacy is never believable.
