Audience Reviews for Female Trouble

  • Aug 20, 2018
    While this revolting film is daring, funny and provocative for quite some time, soon it becomes insufferable with a bunch of people shrieking around without end and yelling at each other for much longer than our patience can take (hell, of course, this is John Waters).

    This is one of Waters' more political comedies, it's hilarious to watch, so campy and yet you can't help but laugh at the stupid dialogues.

    Featuring virtually the same cast as the more famous "Pink Flamingos" and in my opinion, I found it to be not as good as its predecessed, but it is still a decent flix with a bizarre story, good exploitation values.and quite amusing scenes for which the film isn't a complete waste.

    "I wanted Cha Cha heels" screams the 300 pound drag queen, before heading off to a life of murder, disfigurement, and stardom. Divine's speech at the end is one of the greatest things ever.
