Notorious Baltimore criminal and underground figure Divine goes up against a sleazy married couple who make a passionate attempt to humiliate her and seize her tabloid-given title as "The Filthiest Person Alive".
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

You can see Melanie Griffith's real hair coming out from under the blonde wig in the scene where her roots are getting treated (the same scene where the whole crew learns of the Forest Gump sequel). See more »

The credits thank "Fred and Ginger" both insinuating Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, the dance duo, and "Fred e Ginger" a movie by Federico Fellini, paying homage to the duo. See more »
I stumbled onto this film on Showtime and since it had just started I watched it through. Knowing very little about it at the time the first impression was that it was a goofy 'B' grade comedy. It got a little darker than that but not much. I almost quit watching after the completely contrived situations got a little old, but I did like some of the characterizations even if they were mostly overdone, and some of those contrived situations were funny in any case. The film ended with much the same kind of goofiness that it began with. I give it a 7 for being different but the sort of movie I'd only watch one time.
