Well worth a look.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 8, 2008
Rather mild and scattershot in its satiric marksmanship...
May 8, 2008
Lacks the bite it would need to be subversive, despite a few moments of vintage Waters tastelessness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 6, 2008
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 23, 2007
The film may be a bad-boy satirist's mournful acceptance that America has finally become sicker than anything he could dream up.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 1, 2006
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B
June 24, 2006
An uproariously funny, marvellously malicious performance from Turner.
May 26, 2006
Kathleen Turner should win an Oscar for her demented Mom role...
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 18, 2005
Not Waters' best by any means, but this irreverant black comedy entertains.
| Original Score: B-
May 28, 2005
Madness from John Waters
| Original Score: 4/5
September 15, 2003
[Turner's] efforts fail to make Serial Mom into anything more than merely watchable.
Full Review| Original Score: 3/10
August 24, 2003
Deliciously wicked and deliriously funny, Serial Mom is one of Waters' most accomplished works.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
July 23, 2003
It's like I hate it, but I can't stop watching!
| Original Score: 3/5
June 7, 2003
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
| Original Score: 3/5
May 20, 2003
Neither satirically relevant nor shocking enough.
| Original Score: 2/4
April 12, 2002
The murders are multiple but the joke is strictly one-note.
January 9, 2002
Waters's in-your-face irreverence has an irresistible gusto, and his outrageous, satiric approach cuts to the quick.
May 12, 2001
A killingly funny spoof of crime and nonpunishment.
January 1, 2000
While the idea sounds fertile, the execution is uneven, and the comedy sporadic at best.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
I am not sure why this isn't very funny, but it's not.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
