CGiii Comment

The debut of Waters - and a not-as-fat Divine...as Babs.

It truly is diabolical - no matter how you look at it.

But, if it is sleaze and filth that you are after then, this is as good a starting point as any.

Inexplicably, this film provokes bold affection.

It was a landmark to the generation that knew Divine - a powerhouse and a lavish slap in the face for the establishment.

It is, at times, hysterical, cheap and...bold.

Aaaaaah the 70s, it changed lives.

The(ir) Blurb...

Sleaze queen Divine lives in a caravan with her mad hippie son Crackers and her 250-pound mother Mama Edie, trying to rest quietly on their laurels as 'the filthiest people alive'. But competition is brewing in the form of Connie and Raymond Marble, who sell heroin to schoolchildren and kidnap and impregnate female hitchhikers, selling the babies to lesbian couples. Finally, they challenge Divine directly, and battle commences.
