In Baltimore, guerrilla filmmaker Cecil B. Demented leads a band of cinema revolutionaries who kidnap Honey Whitlock, a bitchy and aging movie star of big-budget froth. Cecil wants her in his movie, a screed against Hollywood they film during blitzkrieg attacks on a multiplex, a Maryland Film Commission press conference, and the set of a "Forrest Gump" sequel. He insists on celibacy; the cast and crew channel sexual energy into the production. With a family-values coalition, aggrieved Teamsters, and the police on their trail, Cecil needs help from porno, kung-fu, and drive-in audiences. What about Honey? Will she bolt or refuse to act? Or will she hit her marks and light up the screen? Written by
John Waters wrote up the lyrics for the spoof rap songs on the soundtrack ("Bankable Bitch (We Don't Need No Pitch)," "No Budget", et al.) during the screenwriting phase, but the music supervisor couldn't find any rappers who were familiar with filmmaking lingo. Waters then met, quite by accident, Baltimore rap producer Steven Janis. Janis provided DJ Class and a number of other Baltimore-area rap artists, all of who had to be familiar with the pages of moviemaking terminology that Waters provided. See more »

Just been to the local Film Festival "Viennale" to see this movie and it was the most boring and uninteresting film I have seen on this festival so far. The idea of a group of some wanna´- be film makers doing some kind of independent - attack seemed quite nice at first. John Waters makes fun of big blockbuster films throughout the whole movie which would be fun if he´d be able to at least reach these movies´s levels. But no, the humor is absolutely flat and even more levelless than films like scary movie. His characters use names like Almodóvar, Warhol, Tarantino, Lee,... which they are not worthy of. And why does Melanie Griffith start to sympathize with these people so fast ? There is no explanation. The Helsinki Syndrome ? Characters are weak and too many. All we get to know of these people are one-liners to explain their characters. One of them thinks satan is cool, the next one takes drugs and thinks it´s super and another one has worried parents. There´s not much more to them. Even the plot is boring because we get to see the same scene of mad people taking over cinemas and film productions over and over again. This is absolutely a shame for the wonderful genre of independent movies and I truly hope it won´t run under this category.
