A loose remake of Female Trouble with Polyester's subversively accessible polish, Serial Mom is the strongest film of the post-midnight-movie chapter of John Waters's career.

The film may be a bad-boy satirist's mournful acceptance that America has finally become sicker than anything he could dream up.

One of Waters' tamest and most accessible pictures (even played at Cannes Fest!) and one of the few to feature a legit star like Katheleen Thurner, who gives a gusto performance.

An uproariously funny, marvellously malicious performance from Turner.

Kathleen Turner should win an Oscar for her demented Mom role...

A delightfully shrewd and slaphappy satire that paints a demented portrait of a seemingly ideal suburbia. Waters and his frothy farce are both splendidly twisted
