  1. Consistently amusing and smart in its choice of targets, but it lacks the manic edge of some of Waters' earlier movies.

    Has a giddy silliness that's thoroughly endearing.
  3. 60
    Has the grace to send the audience out with a piece of Waters-written rap.
  4. Has a few viciously funny moments.
  5. Weighed down by the presence of Griffith. She plays her satiric part without much gusto or conviction - as if she were afraid we might believe she really is Honey.

    Diverting but uneven.

    Hamstrung by a script that is too often smug, obvious and self-important.
  8. Disappointing and surprisingly crude.
  9. 50
    Where once Waters was brilliantly polluted, now he comes off diluted.
  10. Not so much a movie as a self-contained world for like-minded people who wear their outsider status on their sleeves.
