John Waters directs Divine, David Lochary and Mary Vivian Pearce in this independent black comedy about a juvenile delinquent’s journey from single teen mother to the electric chair.
The first half is ribald and hilarious, the second half quite grim if you were to take it seriously. Don’t. Mink Stole steals the film as the bratty daughter. The highlight is probably a disfigured Divine vamping it along a busy pedestrian street and the real Baltimore people just blithely going about their day around her.
