Hollywood had already made very violent movies, movies with sex in them, people had complained, which is good because it shows they had to watch them to find out, so why not make a really gross movie? I guess this is another example of how Hollywood misleads people about which road will lead to success. After John Water's relatively short apprenticeship making movies that can be described as grossploitaion, Hollywood decided he was ready for the big time. He paved the way for many youtube videos, tv shows like fear factor; he was a real gosh darn pioneer!

A film that reminds me of the Warhol movies of the 60's and 70's which has that similar brand of dark bad taste humour, wickedly funny if your humour is dark/black and outrageous you won't be disappointed.

Probably the most unique and risque film ever made, still even today.

Still crazy film about people fighting to claim title of "Filthiest Person Alive". All are quite despicable, but Edith Massey steals the whole damn show. Eggs! Eggs! Oh God!

This movie is really funny. Other than that, yuck!

Curiously cutesy and unashamedly depraved, John Waters' shocker is worth watching if only for its bizarre tone and eerie oddities. But be warned: this creepy comedy WILL test your stomach.
There's a lot of shouting, a lot of swearing and a surf-friendly soundtrack, as the film circles around a competition between oddball Divine and her baby-breeding adversaries for the title of 'filthiest people alive'. Characters include a travelling egg salesman, an egg-citable crib-bound Grandmother and a Peeping Tom (or rather, Flashing Raymond) and the marauding plot includes anything from creepy incest and the consumption of dog faeces, to anal stretching and chicken murder.
Despite the fact at least half of this outrageous material is near unwatchable, Pink Flamingos really has to be seen to be believed - it's one of few banned films that genuinely lives up to its myths. This is the filthiest movie alive. Or at least one of them...

The only movie that I love but would not recommend to anyone.

I felt that Pink Flamingos is just too raunchy and exploitive for it's own good,also quite poorly executed in ways.

A masterpiece of trash cinema!
John Water's dirty legacy has filled these boots for this film to become a pop culture sensation.

I needed a shower but they just don't make water hot enough!

The most cogently transgressive and anarchic film ever made?

John Waters' "Pink Flamingos," is a movie that proudly achieves every low, sordid, and shocking benchmark that it aims for. It's truly one of the most depraved, rancid, disgusting, and shamelessly stupid films I've ever seen.

Gross, twisted, and very, very funny. John Waters is the man.

A classic trash film. It┤s difficult forget Divine, Crackers and Cotton. Violent, disruptive, a masterpiece of bad taste. Excellent soundtrack.

I give this film a half-star not because I feel it's a bad movie, but because it's just so ugly. I can't say anything against John Waters' work on this film because I know this is his total vision. Its unapologetic and grimy, and I get the feeling that's exactly what John wanted. Its just not for me.

Infamous sick comedy featuring coprophagia, chickens killed during sex, unusual camera zooms, and a fatty Bab Johnson competing over the title "The Filthiest Person Alive" against the Marbles.
November 7, 2014
The most profane exploitation films not even for me in my according standards as a Christian wise enough to avoid such vulgar or pornographic concepts in such cinemas of America.

'An exercise in poop taste' - is an apt tagline and that's all there is to it.
