Synopsis

AN EXERCISE IN POOR TASTE
The film concerns two groups of outcasts vying for the title 'The Filthiest People Alive.' On one side we have Divine, The Queen Of Sleaze, and her troubled family: Crackers, her demented hill-billy-hippie son; Cotton, her bleached-blond, glamorous and voyeuristic travelling companion; and Mama Edie, a 250-pound senior citizen who sits in a playpen dressed in a girdle and bra and worships eggs. The challengers to the title are Connie and Raymond Marble, a jealous, publicity-hungry couple with pre-punk red and blue hair. The Divine family is trying to live quietly, knowing they are indeed 'The filthiest people alive' but the Marbles attempt to seize this title by sending them a turd in the mail and burning their trailer to the ground. Provoked to war, the Divine entourage kidnaps the Marbles, puts them on trial for ass-holism and you'll have to see it to find out the rest. Danny Peary - "CULT MOVIES"

A masterpiece of perversion! See Divine eat dog shit! See Divine give her own son a graphic blow job! See Crackers graphically inject his semen into a kidnapped twentysomething! Watch a singing arsehole! See a transsexual flasher! Watch Divine shove fresh steak between her legs! And more. With a great soundtrack too. John Waters' cult classic is here for all to see.
