A completely independent and stimulating movie ! It's like a trash fairy tale with all the John Water's characters we love... Hysterical , outrageous but never creepy. Actually although situations are in this movie very extreme, they are nevertheless hilarious. John Waters touches in a way : his movie is completely spontaneous and refreshing even almost 30 years after . That's rare enough nowadays don't you think? For instance: just look at the scene where the runaways wife and maid are arrested by a cop who is a underpants fetishists...this could have been disgusting ... in the contrary it appears to be a sort of amazing trip,shocking but awesome . The John Water's touch!
