Citizen Jane Film Festival director Barbie Banks re: In Case of Emergency: "It was really funny, and we wanted to show how great a film can be on not-a-million-dollar budget," Banks says.

"The scenes that follow should be clichê... but they end up one of the best makeover sequences since To Wong Foo: Thanks for Everything with Julie Newmar.
