I love John Waters more than life itself... almost. But, I don't think this is his best film. It's still great, and I think the fact that Waters has done a silent (sort of) film is such a funny concept that he almost didn't even have to do it! He could have just TALKED about doing it and it would have been fine! Anyhoo, the plot and dialog are funny, and the actors are fine as usual, but I guess it just seems a little slow next to his other movies. I think the ending is HILARIOUS, though, so even if bits of it seem to drag some, it's totally worth the watch for real Waters fans.
The bottom line: -If you're not already a Waters fan, or if you are thin skinned and a definite ANTI-FAN of campy ("weird") movies, you won't like it.
-If you are already a Waters fan, or if you like campy stuff and don't mind sitting through a couple slow scenes, you will probably like it.
