The Pop of Trash's follow-up to Pink Flamingos is a more hilarious, shocking and poignant feature, with Divine in top form.

How does one follow up a legendary affront to decency? In John Waters' case, he moved on.

DVD Verdict

Combined with...Waters' own private peculiarities, Female Trouble stands along side Pink Flamingos as a sure sign of this director's depth and talent.

For John Waters purists, this will be upheld as the real thing, but for most others, the licentious social commentary will only disgust or shock.

best seen as an early stab at satirizing the media and the overwhelming hype that is lavished on high-profile criminals

A wonderfully wicked film celebrating two things the director has always found fascinating: crime and beauty.

How do you follow-up Pink Flamingos? Not with a work that tries to outdo that classic gross-out comedy, but rather by moving in another direction entirely that's just as subversive, if not more so.

Normal people should probably stay away, but twisted people and young filmmakers will find laughter, inspiration and joy here.

John Waters' most bizarre work is also his worst, a nonsensical palette of disgusting characters, bad acting, a baffling plot, and just plain bad taste.
