A Delisiously Wicked Western Comedy
21 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This deliciously wicked musical western comedy have the genius of John Waters and comedian Divine in a laugh-out-loud well produce, written and acted comedy. These desperado are searching for a hidden treasure at the ruthless town of "Chili Verde", and the only good guys are an aging prostitute and a clueless drifter. But since they don't have cable the local must find other ways to amuse themselves like leaching day. Even the priest gets into the action.

So run fast rent or buy "Lust in the Dust", this guilty pleasure is best enjoy with a pint, a few buffalo wings and few idiots to laugh with.
