What some people think about this movie...

Well, this IS a John Waters movie so you can expect bad taste & great lines. Mink Stole is fantastic as usual as a neurotic housewife. Some VERY graphic grossness including a surgically placed penis being cut off, a dog being run over & some cannibalism. Edith Massey is Edith Massey as Queen Carlotta. If you like John Waters' brand of perverted fun than you'll like this one.
