    Ahh! the early days when your career as a film maker were uncertain and you could do anything you wanted...then you smooth out and you end up with something like 'Serial Mom' which I guess is the tame version of a John waters tale of perversion as the 'norm'. 'Female trouble' nor John Waters will ever be forgotten throughout all film history and time.

    The absolutely best John Waters film ever made. I cannot get enough of Dawn, Gator and Aunt Ida. If you like Waters, you'll love this. It's not as self-indulgent as Pink Flamingos and way better than the watered-down stuff that comes later.

    This is one of John Waters' best movies. Divine is exceptional as Dawn Davenport. If you like to laugh and are a bit twisted, this is a movie for you.

    A prophetic film. Laid out the road map for our tabloid culture years before it became mainstream. "Who wants to die for art!"

  1. It's the hallmark of a classic that must be seen to be disbelieved.

    Raggedly produced, savagely funny movie.

    Camp is too elegant a word to describe it all.
