  • Pink Flamingos, John Waters....What Is Your Threshold?

    Jun 23, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Only John Waters could have made this. It appears the cast had a good time...
    Cons: Demented, perverted, sordid, execrable.....you get the idea.

    Summary: I remember the shock when I first saw Pink Flamingos at the Varsity Theater, just off the L.S.U. campus near Chimes Street in Baton Rouge. It was, of course, the late, late, late show and the audience was an enthusiastic college crowd. I ... read more

  • Pink Flamingos: Let The Trash Wars Begin!

    May 24, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A John Waters Classic.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: It's the film you've heard about from friends. The film that you've been warned about, before told about. The notorious flick that made bad taste fasionable. I'm talking about the great, and classic film Pink Flamingos. Many have heard about this ... read more

  • An Exercise in Bad Taste

    Mar 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Creative, shocking, different from other films
    Cons: Technically bad, bad acting (well, for John Waters that isn't a con)

    Summary: This is truly the best of Waters' early works. Although I had already been told about all of the really obscene parts (well basically the whole movie was obscene), it was still collosaly shocking. I must admit, this is not a movie that is enjoyable for ... read more

  • The Filthiest People Alive

    Apr 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This film set the standard for weirdness
    Cons: Most people wont get it, and shouldn't

    Summary: When reviewing a movie I always ask myself a few questions. First: what is the movie about? What is it trying to do? How well does it do that? And, finally: have I seen this before, and was it done better then? These questions don't apply to ... read more

  • For Once, Crap Worth Seeing

    Feb 24, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fine example of exploitation film-making.
    Cons: Gross and outlandish. Not for most people...I mean it!

    Summary: Exploitation film-making at it's best depending on weather or not you can divorce yourself from the crudeness you see on the screen. Let's face it...this film by John Waters is not for the mass cinema audience. In fact, it's not for most people. There ... read more

  • Don't Feel Too Filthy When You Watch This

    Jan 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Obscenities for Every Level of Decency (something for everyone)
    Cons: Movie not useful to spark a romantic evening

    Summary: In 1972, John Waters shot a ultra-low budget film called Pink Flamingoes. It became his "best" work, a cult classic that was banned for many years after its release, but released in 1997 in a 25th anniversary edition complete with commentary and cut outs ... read more

  • Pink Poodle Poop or Divine's Doggy Doo?

    Nov 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Doggy Doo HorsDourvers
    Cons: Doggy Doo HorsDourvers

    Summary: Okay, now this is literally the filthiest movie ever made. So I'm torn, I love it so much I hate it or I hate it so much I love it....The fun thing about this movie is that it plays with your head. Your mind and body can't decide whether to be ... read more

    Pros: funny
    Cons: nasty

    Summary: John Waters.... the name says it all. trashy If you want to know how to be completely and utterly FILTHY, watch this movie. Divine plays the role as the "mother" ???? she's/he's a fat drag queen who poops in public and shoves ... read more

  • No One is Filthier than Divine

    Jul 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Many memorable scenes of delightfully obscenity
    Cons: film quality

    Summary: This 1972 film is the most in/famous of kitschmeister JOHN WATERS' early low budget works. Set in Baltimore, just like every JOHN WATERS film, fat and sassy trailer-trash queen Babs Johnson (DIVINE a.k.a. Glenn Milstead) is quite proud to have been ... read more

    Jun 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: One of the funniest films ever made
    Cons: Not a movie for everybody...in fact, it's a movie for almost nobody

    Summary: "Pink Flamingos" is an incredibly disgusting, shocking, hilarious film. It's got a great cast of characters, lots of campy sets and costumes, an insane screenplay, and lots of gross antics, all of which make for a great comedy that's even got ... read more

  • Trash Pinacle

    Jun 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Innovatively crude
    Cons: Pointless, disorganized

    Summary: "Pink Flamingos" is a movie that does not inspire indifference. Audiences are either enamored by its social satire and envelope-pushing crudity, or repulsed by how digusting the film is. In addition to the legendary scene involving the eating ... read more

  • In the Pink

    Mar 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Admit it, this stuff turns you on.
    Cons: You may never eat a Snickers bar again.

    Summary: Have you ever slowed down to look when you saw an SUV on its side with fire emitting from the hood and children securely buckled into their "safety-seat" as the inferno reaches ever so close to the gas tank...Well then you should be locked up ... read more

  • The Filthiest Movie Alive!!!

    Jan 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: a true classic, funny, a party on the screen pretty much!
    Cons: may be too much for some viewers

    Summary: If anything could be filthier than an adult movie, it's got to be "Pink Flamingos", the greatest creation of John Waters and truly a cult classic! The plot centers around the distinction of being the "Filthiest Person ... read more

  • The Sweetest Taboo

    Jan 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: like watching a two hour train wreck
    Cons: like watching a two hour train wreck

    Summary: Any movie that sets about breaking every single taboo can't be all bad, even when it's designed to be bad. Pink Flamingos is simply a masterpiece; it's the Citizen Kane of bad taste. In this movie, you will see: A. A person eat dog doo doo. ... read more

  • Disgustingly good.

    Jan 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: good movie
    Cons: absolutely revolting

    Summary: This John Waters film (Pecker, Hairspray) stars Divine, who is trying to defend her title as "Filthiest person alive" against a couple who believe that they are the filthiest people alive. List of disgusting things you can see in this ... read more

  • Oh Mr Egg Man! I love you too!

    Jan 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nuts, Funny, Crude
    Cons: I think the movie ran a little long.

    Summary: One of the few movies you can ever see Divine - a heavy transvestite in a tight blood red dress. Pink Flamingos...would definitely have to serve as a testament to John Waters "Unique" film style. I have seen several films by John Waters ... read more
