    I thought this film was very funny and the characters were great. I'll admit, this film (like most John Waters films) isn't for everyone, but I will very likely see it again. It is kind of a parody on the whole Patty Hearst/terrorism thing except in this case it deals with the film industry, the great thing is Patty has a cameo in the film as Fidget's mother.

    10...But only on a John Waters scale! It is deliciously tacky and decadent, and as a Baltimore insider I revel in the local sights being revealed in a non-traditional manner!

    I thought it was a great movie. Really. The actors were great and dementia was achieved. Well done.

    Excellent characters and storyline. John Waters does it again. Hilarous satire, with just enough movie terrorism to go around. Down with mainstream. Damn right.

  1. The comedy is frantic and tasteless in the usual Waters mode, but it takes telling potshots at the Hollywood establishment, which isn't nearly so open about the tackiness of its products.

    A small, scruffy, but agreeably energized comedy.

    Shrill and sloppy film.
