Anita Morris in an outrageous John Waters-like comedy ............
10 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you loved Anita Morris in "Ruthless People", then "A Sinful Life" is a must see. She again plays a "Southern belle" surrounded by doofus men much like Bill Pullman's character in "Ruthless People". Morris's explanation of how her imbecilic daughter, "Baby", was conceived from an earthquake in a sperm bank is worth the price of admission alone. If you like "trailer trash" movies such as "Hold Me. Thrill Me, Kiss Me", or "Poor White Trash" (2001), then "A Sinful Life" is for you. The film is infinitely quotable (Morris to the janitor) "I hope you're available tomorrow morning, I'd like you to snake my tub". (Mark Rolston as a transsexual talks about his latest lover) "If immigration doesn't catch him, I'll live happily ever after". Seek this one out. Highly recommended of it's type. - MERK
