Polyester is definitely one of Waters's best films, and I highly recommend attending an 'Odorama' screening for a unique night at the movies.

By standards of Waters' gross-out features, this mildly amusing film is sedate, notable for the casting of fading movie star Tab Hunter and for introducing a gimmick called Odorama, scratch-and-sniff cards.

Polyester may be one of the few times when Waters tried to expand his cinematic language at the expense of his usual verbal variety

A low-rent version of a Douglas Sirk 1950s soaper, with Divine being dragged through all the paces that might have been the lot of a glossy star of the era.

Waters' humor might be as broad as possible in Polyester, but it's also astute enough here to be funny from moment to moment.

Tab Hunter (Grease 2) earns praise for playing the dreamboat with such sincerity, and also for kissing Divine full on the lips. You don't win Oscars doing stuff like that.
