I liked it for its campiness.
This movie is great for John Waters fans. It's incredibly campy. If you're looking for horror, you won't really find it here, though it is a bit gory. I believe that this movie was intended to be ridiculously bad. At the time I saw it, my friend and I were both temps and the over-wrought workplace melodramas and vocabulary really resonated with us. Carol Kane was great, and Molly Ringwald was as I've never seen her before -- a caricature of herself. I look forward to Cindy Sherman's next picture.
