Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This is the movie that made John Waters famous, and quite possibly the film that made bad taste cool. Yes, Virginia, a large transvestite actually eats dog feces as a kind of dizzying denouement to this frequently illogical and intentionally disgusting movie, but by the time that happens, you're already numb ... and you've possibly laughed to the point of losing bladder control.

The plot revolves around two vile families laying claim to the title "The Filthiest People Alive." You've got pregnant women in pits, you've got grown men getting sexual satisfaction from chickens, you've got people licking furniture to perform trailer-park voodoo, and you've got classic lines like: "Oh my God! The couch ... it ... it rejected you!"

Waters, who went on to direct genuine pop-culture classics such as Hairspray and Serial Mom, made this celluloid sideshow with one aim--to make a name for himself. It worked. He does have a genuine eye for filmmaking (when the trailer burns down, you feel the white heat of Divine's pain and anger). On the other hand, you won't notice any disclaimers about stunt doubles and animals not being mistreated. There weren't, and they were. Welcome to the filthiest film in the world. --Grant Balfour

Format: DVD
Pink Flamingos really was the film John Waters made to make him famous--and it worked, although he didn't truly enter mainstream cinema for some years to come. The plot moves along rather well--better than I expected; and the acting is great. The scenes and plot are so silly that I found it entertaining although I wouldn't give it quite the full five stars.

The action begins when Connie and Raymond Marble (Mink Stole and David Lochary, respectively) become involved in a huge fight with Babs Johnson, a.k.a. Divine (Divine) over who is the filthiest person alive. The Marbles even hire a spy, Cookie (Cookie Mueller) to get them the dirt (no pun intended) on Divine and her family. Divine lives in a broken down trailer home in the woods. Divine's crazy son Crackers (Danny Mills), her mentally challenged, egg loving mother Edie (Edith Massey) and her good friend Cotton (Mary Vivian Pearce) live with her.

The Marbles start to torture Divine and her family not just with a spy but also with the lovely (ahem) package they send to Divine--a piece of "number two." Of course it's only a matter of time before Divine and her family attack the Marble's home; and The Marbles attack Divine's home.

Be prepared--this is no movie for the squeamish. There are scenes of (ahem) rather unusual modes of love making, human mutilation, and there's the infamous scene at the end in which Divine eats a dog's you-know-what. Actually, the last scene is so talked about it came off as slightly less (well, very slightly less) repugnant than I thought it would be.

The movie was made on a very, very low budget, so if you want great cinematography and choreography, look elsewhere.

If you can sit thru some of the most disturbing scenes ever filmed, you will be rewarded by some of the funniest. A must-see for John Waters fans, although after seeing this movie umpteen times, I still fast-forward past the chicken sex scene and the mom-fellates-son scene - they are still too horrible for me to watch! The highlights include Edith Massey, who spends the entire movie in a playpen wearing dirty underwear and obsessing about eggs; Divine's unique way of keeping her dinner steak warm; and the pepperoni-enhanced flasher. If you're the easily-offended type, don't ever watch it. If you like sick humor and are a Waters fan, you must have this in your collection.

This film is hilarious! It's so good! Judging by some of the low reviews this movie has received, it's pretty clear that these people have no sense of humour and probably grew up in the Bible Belt of America living under rocks with no clue of anything involving creativity.

People, this movie is SUPPOSED TO BE GROSS, IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE DISGUSTING, IT DELIBERATELY HAS BAD ACTING...all these things make this movie so appealing. The main character is a transvestite, her son has a chicken sex fetish, the mother is obsessed with eating eggs and lives in a play pen, the villains have red and blue hair and keep girls impregnated by their chauffeur locked in the basement...how could it get any better??

I laugh harder everytime I see this movie and I'm sure anyone with a sense of humour will strongly agree and find it equally as amusing!

This is the trash movie from which all other bad movies should be judged by! The Grandmama of filth, Divine SHINES like a turd in this one!

Leave it to the Pope of trash, John Waters to set the record straight on the All American practice of "Keeping Up With The Jonses!" As Divine proudly states in this film: "It's virtually impossible to be filthier than Divine!" And SHe proves that point in the end by proudly scarfing down on that dog's spoor!

My favorite scene:

Where Divine shoplifts that steak between HIr thighs! Later when SHe is cooking it, HIr daughter remarks how good it smells. Divine replies, that it ought to, cause SHe kept it warm all day in "HIr own little oven!!!"

King George W. wouldnt like this movie. However if you have been warped in the 1970's by the National Lampoon, and if you have not seen the most infamous movie ever made, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU????!!!!

I have heard so much about this movie...just the cover made me want to see it.
I am honestly beyond terrified and at the same time aroused by this movie. First off, this might be old but this movie is over the top even by todays standards. Definitly for those with a STRONG stomach. No exageration intended. Over-all, storywise, it's ok.

Cannibalism, Incest, Beastality, $h!t-eating (seriously), Live homocide, Cross dressing...all in this movie...oh yea and a fat chick in a play-pen for the majority of the film.

All I have left to say is I will have trouble sleeping the next few days trying to get all this explicit imagery out of my head (my head is f-ed up enough without this movie).

*UPDATE:
Back on April 2nd of 2014, Pink Flamingos was shown at the Dryden Theater. The whole room reeked of weed, and we all laughed the entire way movie. I can without a doubt confirm that this movie, like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, must be viewed in a theater to be fully enjoyed...and the viewer must be very baked!
