A talented young photographer, who enjoys snapping photos of his satirical, perverted Baltimore neighborhood and his wacky family, gets dragged into a world of pretentious artists from New York City and finds newfound fame.
In the opening scene, the number of the bus is 7734. According to John Waters, this is an old Catholic school joke since '7734' upside-down "spells" hell.
At the end of the opening credits, Pecker photographs a woman outside the Sub Pit. He is holding the camera vertically, but we are shown a horizontal view through the viewfinder.
