Abel Wood: 'Bout twenty years.
Father Garcia: [pricks himself with needle while sewing] Aye!
Abel Wood: I just have to get a few things off my chest... Lets see, first there was, uh, this girl in El Paso... her mother... and her grand-mother.

Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevine!
24 November 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The is the best 'bad' movie ever. Great cast (who never play for the laughs). Divine and Lainie Kazan are so great together as rivals for Tab Hunter. Geoffrey Lewis is hysterical in all his scenes...especially the bedroom. Ceasar Romero, Woody Stode, Neddra Voltz (as the west's oldest hooker), Henry Silva, Courtney Gains...everyone is perfect. Want to have a great party? Have a Lust in the Dust night with some chili verde, cornbread and 'red-eye' for the buffet then watch Lust in the Dust. Don't invite any squares.
