Sitting in a Cult Films class you would expect to see some pretty weird shit...well nothing was as weird as this!Sex, Drugs, Drag, Incest and Cannibalism...who could ask for anything more. I certainly couldn't.
There is a reason this movie was only released in the Midnight Movie circuit, well mutiple reasons that is. Being a big fan of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (boo hiss you can all hate me now) I had no problem with any of the said activities mentioned above, but John Waters took the cake on this one.
Despite the lack of story, lest you count fighting for the title of "Filthiest People Alive" as a plot, this movie goes from being sick to just downright nauseating.
You have Divine "Babs" living with her typical white-trash son, her immature egg-obsessed mother, and and a virginal voyeuristic companion, who you're not sure actually fits into the story at all.
Then we have the Marbles: Raymond and Connie. To capture this famed title "Filthest People Alive", which the Marbles believe they are and not Divine and her trailer trash family, Raymond and Connie kidnapp young girls, have their butler impregnate them and sell their babies to lesbian couples, not only that, they also run pornography shops and heroin rings.
Not impressed at all let me tell you. Although one scene I did get a kick out of was one of Raymond's park flasher escapades, where instead of giving the girl the shock of her life, she returns the favor by showing him her own dick.
All and all this is not a movie I need to or want to see again. Which says alot being as I usually like John Waters' films. Just not the ones where Divine gives head, eats dog shit, and where a guy fucks a girl with a chicken while someone else watches. Oh Well. It's gunna take along long time to forget this one."If someone vomits watching one of my films, it's like getting a standing ovation."
