If, like me, you've been collecting various versions of the Waters films over the years, this will be a welcome addition to your library. I bought the three 2 movie sets individually and then mailed away for the 7th disk that this collection includes. It's got little videos and pictures and other trivia on it. At long last I can finally retire my second generation VHS dubs of Female Trouble and Desperate Living.
Buy this set, and invite your more open-minded friends over. You'll laugh your heads off. These movies literally changed my life (for the better) when I saw them for the first time in my early teens.
Oh, and to knucklehead that gave this set 1 star: Criticizing John Waters' films is like criticizing Picasso's paintings because the people don't look real.

If you're not a John Waters fan already, you probably won't even be reading this. I won't even comment on the film Pecker, since the critics and other viewers have done a pretty thorough job of that, but I will comment on John Water's running commentary, which is almost as good as the film itself. Even if you have already seen Pecker in a theatre, buy the DVD to hear John's commentary. He is so smart and funny and simply lovable, and he accepts everything and everyone with a wide-open heart. I watch every commentary that is included on DVDs, and without doubt, John Water's is one of the best. After hearing this wonderful commentary, you will love the movie even more!

As a young teen, I was raised in a terrible town that was obsessed with sports. No efforts were truly put into giving the children culture. If you were a young male, you either played sports or you were odd. I was odd. I was more interested in painting and music. I had to 'culture' myself. I would get on the bus and go to the city to see architecture, museums, plays, and concerts. Usually by myself. This is around the time I discovered the films of Divine. Here was an outrageous figure not afraid to be himself. Surrounded by an entire group of outcasts and misfits. I almost felt like part of the Dreamlanders (the name given to this group of people). I sought out anything by Divine or John Waters that I could get my hands on. That is how I discovered all of these films.
Watching these films helped me to realize there was an entire world outside of my dreary town and its dreary residents.
And the world was filled with all kinds of wonderful, artistic and bizaare people (who actually made me look dull and normal).
Say what you will about Divine and John Waters. But they really helped me survive my youth.
Now as for this box set. You cannot beat this deal. You get the best of John Waters all in one set. If you bought these films separately, you would pay a lot more than this price.

From Charm City comes another Waters charmer - another minor masterpiece!

From start to finish Pecker is a delight and Waters infuses his script with enough loveable oddball characters to populate an entire city. Whether it's Christina Ricci's obsessive compulsive wreck of a laundress, the sugar addict Little Chrissy, eternally hopeful Mom, sleaze loving Tina or best of all Memama, who's room contains a shrine to the Virgin Mary - and a statute of the Virgin that shrieks "Full of grace! Full of Grace!" there is always someone to watch and enjoy.

Edward Furlong is all wide-eyed innocence - even when he's secretly photographing bottomless lesbian lap dancers at the and male strippers at a gay bar with the unfortunately hilarious name of "The Fudge Palace." Big sister, Tina offers a rip-roaring good time from Martha Plimpton, and Brendan Sexton III is a delight as Pecker's betrayed best friend. Throw in Mary Kay Place (!), Patty Hearst, Mink Stole, Lili Taylor, Bess Armstrong - and others - and you've got an ensemble that's having one helluva good time on screen!

The jumping off point for Waters here is the snobbism and cultural elitism of Manhattan versus the purity and earnestness of Baltimore "Trade Capital of the World." The New York art scene is an easy target and often lampooned but Waters brings his own unique sick twists and takes us along for a ride full of belly laughs, uncomfortable truths in perhaps his sweetest tribute to Baltimore yet.

There's just enough objectionable material to make the "typical American" uncomfortable - and I wouldn't want it any other way!

People who like John Waters's movies, and @$$holes. (Note for the humour-impaired: go to dictionary.com and look up the word "joke" - you'll find life easier afterwards.)
This set is remarkable. Not only do we get John's five best movies and Pecker, complete with the maestro's side-splitting commentary tracks, but we get a bonus DVD with all kinds of treasures: clips from unfinished movies, interviews old & new, and assorted relevant weirdness.
If you get John Waters, you need this set. If you don't, well there's plenty of other junk out there.

John Waters' Pecker is now available as part of the double DVD set with Hairspray so I recommend making it part of your collection. Why this set is called John Waters: Collection #1 is a little odd since these two are his later "mainstream" films and not the trashy no budget stuff starring Divine that put Waters on the map. Still, Pink Flamingos and others are available in other collections on DVD so who cares what number they are! Anyway, Eddie Furlong plays Pecker, a young man who loves taking pictures of everything including all of his unique friends and family as well as the scenery of Baltimore. After holding a small exhibit of his photos in the sandwich shop he works in an art promoter from NY sees his photo of a stripper's pubic hair and wants to put on an exhibit of Pecker's work in NY. Pecker becomes the hottest art photographer in NY, but at the expence of his family and friends. He decides to turn it all around and give the NY art crowd a taste of their own medicine. The film, like most of Waters' work is filled with colorful and strange characters. First, there's Pecker's family: His Dad runs a local pub right across the street from a lesbian strip club, his sister is the bartender/MC of a gay nightclub featuring male dancers, his Mom runs the local thrift shop and helps the homeless with new outfits ("Don't be afraid of fashion"), his other sister, Little Chrissy, is addicted to sugar, and his Grandma or Mi Mama runs a pit beef stand and has a doll of Mary, Mother of God, who she speaks through (Full of Grace!). Then there is Shelly (Christina Ricci), Pecker's girlfriend who runs the local laundromat and is so obsessed with cleanliness and laundromat policies that she is nicknamed the "stain goddess". Pecker also has a best friend, Matt, who is the best thief in town.Read more ›
