Almost John Waters' Best Film
4 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

"The Diane Linkletter Story' is an essential for any true John Waters fan. Where else do you get to see David Lochary as a concerned parent? The plot follows Mister and Misses Linkletter( David Lochary and Mary Vivian 'Bonnie' Pearce) who are waiting for their daughter Diane( Divine) to return home. When she does, she is drunk and stoned out of her mouth. David Lochary gives the best and funniest performance of his career and Divine and Mary Vivian are sensational as well! A must-see!!!! Ten out of ten stars!
