At the meal after Pecker's New York exhibition opening, Pecker's gallerist Rorey Wheeler says "hi Colin, hi Pat" to characters off-screen. She is probably referencing Colin de Land and his wife Pat Hearn, both legendary New York gallery owners (of American Fine Arts, Co. and Pat Hearn Gallery respectively). At the time Pecker was filmed, director John Waters was represented by American Fine Arts, Co. See more »
At the end of the opening credits, Pecker photographs a woman outside the Sub Pit. He is holding the camera vertically, but we are shown a horizontal view through the viewfinder. See more »
Just saw this in New York, it will never come to St. Croix! I liked it a lot, made me laugh. This is the most accessible of any of John Waters' movies I've seen and I like that, doesn't hit you over the head with weirdness. Waters is so good at taking a normal situation and making it appear just slightly off kilter. There are some great characters here...Ed Furlong is wonderfully wholesome and believable as Pecker, Christina Ricci is terrific in a very intense way as a too normal no frills small city girl. This movie is just plain good fun, it's easy to laugh at everybody and not feel mean spirited. Oh yeah and good to see Patty Hearst having some fun.
