My own personal cult classic!
24 September 2004 | by (Philadelphia, Pa.) – See all my reviews

Shame this is fading... it should get more respect than it does. It's very John Waters, yes... but these people can act. I channel surfed into this one night and couldn't believe it. It's become my own personal cult film. I spring it on the avg. John Waters fan and they like it a lot. The basic storyline revolves around an ex-dancer/present day drunk, Claire Vin Blanc, and her odd daughter "Baby". I say odd because the actress who plays he is at least 20 years old. But the movie is all flashback, so she's done up like a baby doll. Baby is constantly late for school and her teacher decides to visit the home. This leads to a disaster and the teacher threatens to have poor Baby removed from the abusive home. Not much of a plot. But along the way, Claire screws the janitor (come see me tomorrow.. i want you to "snake my tub"), dishes with her rather masculine neighbor, Theresa (the photographer said I look like a young Pam Dawber)... and, in an effort to get a new sofa to make her house more presentable for the teacher, she seduces another neighbor who is a religious nut and the head of the credit dept. at Sears (he has a preference for the grosser passages in the Bible).

It wraps up pretty neat and quick, but i love this movie. My favorite scene...When Claire first has sex with the janitor in her bedroom..

they are blurry "doing it" on the bed, and the camera pans over to 2 cockroaches on her dresser "doing it" also!!! If you can find this check it out!
