Why won't he make movies like this anymore?!
This is one of my favourite John Waters movies along with Polyester and Female Trouble.I don't know what all the fuss was about Pink Flamingos.I found this to be a much weaker effort along with Cry Baby which was incredibly bland.Although I love Devine you wouldn't miss him in this as the rest of the cast are so impressive.10 out of 10!!
