13 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the guy who wrote the prior review talking about this as a John Waters movie, please tell him it's a Paul Bartel movie. Then have him go out and rent "Eating Raoul." I loved this movie. I laughed so hard. Between Lainie Kazan and Divine, I was in comedy heaven. My favorite line is when Divine says she's not going to leave until Lainie hears her sing. Lainie Kazan has to be one or our most underrated comediennes. Sad we lost Divine. Tab Hunter was lucky to be in this. I think it actually did him some good although it may have been lost on him. The hardest working burro in show business was forced to carry Divine across the Mexican desert and never complained. Loved this movie.
