REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 7-Mar-2006)

Another exercise in foul taste by John Waters, this time charting the life and wild times of an obese problem child (Divine) who hates her parents, hates school, goes on the run, gets raped by a horny trucker (also played by Divine, who dresses as a man in this role and gives rise to the memorable line "go f**k yourself"!) and winds up living with a degenerate boyfriend and an illegitimate daughter (Mink Stole) before being 'discovered' by a pair of fashionistas who want to take their warped 'crime is beauty' ethic to an extreme. Hilariously bitter dialogue abounds, there's jaw-dropping (and gut-churning) insanity to spare and some of the worst amateur acting and technical credits you'll ever see, but when the result is a film as recklessly vibrant and entertainingly sleazy as this, you can forgive the numerous shortcomings and concentrate on the car-wreck fascination of Waters' insane private universe. NOT suitable for children or grandparents!
