    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.

    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. 10 years 2 months ago
