Rather mild and scattershot in its satiric marksmanship...

Lacks the bite it would need to be subversive, despite a few moments of vintage Waters tastelessness.

[Turner's] efforts fail to make Serial Mom into anything more than merely watchable.

Neither satirically relevant nor shocking enough.

The murders are multiple but the joke is strictly one-note.

While the idea sounds fertile, the execution is uneven, and the comedy sporadic at best.
January 1, 2000
Offensively tame and almost (gasp) tasteful.

The film goes off in so many directions, and Waters is so self-satisfied with shock and gross-out elements, that it wears out its welcome before we even get to the courtroom.
January 1, 2000
No better than cable fare.

Waters is holding back here, sticking to thematic ground that's been covered before and better.
January 1, 2000
Too realistically gory to really be funny.

I am not sure why this isn't very funny, but it's not.
