I really had no intention of watching this because of its reputation but after seeing John Waters do a hilarious comedy routine / talk, I relented. I'm surprised by how much I liked this.
The chicken thing was definitely my least favourite part and Edie annoyed me though she became more tolerable as the movie progressed.
Overall, I enjoyed the weird, fun tone of this movie. Divine's performance was good. The characters were quirky and memorable. Mr. Jay's narration was amusingly campy and a nice touch.
I think to appreciate this movie, you can't take it at face value at all.
Polyester and Desperate living are better but... this still stands the test of time...for it to be shown in theaters back then is crazy .... and fun . LOL
Yeah...I don't think Jackass has anything on this movie. I've seen Jackass do things to feces, I don't think I've ever seen them do what they did.
