July 13, 2015
Does this picture leap off the screen, or what? Yes, it leaps -- thanks to Melanie Griffith's eager participation in this act of revenge, Stephen Dorff's unbuttoned nuttiness...and Waters's knowing, caring intelligence about movie culture and its decline.

Waters satire of the film buff and the film industry is warranted and criminally under-appreciated...

Leave it to Waters to find a proper use for Mrs. Johnson-Banderas, whose natural, annoying shrillness is perfect.

As always, Waters works with an unmistakable affection for even his grubbiest characters.

Waters may have a budget ($9 million) and real Hollywood stars now, but he's still giving the finger to everything decent with his new film

Of the John Waters films I've seen (and I'll admit my knowledge of his films is limited), I'd say it's the best premise with the poorest execution.

See it for "Cherish Oh Lordy" Waters' best character in years. She gets the movie's two most offensive and funniest scenes.
October 24, 2001
[John] Waters skewers every aspect of mainstream Hollywood, using the truly demented Demented... as a proxy howl of rage.

The film has a giddy silliness that's thoroughly endearing, the actors are a hoot.

[Waters] piles on one wacky notion after another, and somehow they stack without toppling.
