From the wondrously fertile mind of writer/director John Waters comes A DIRTY SHAME, America's first carnal concussion comedy. Set in the Harford Road area of Waters' native Baltimore, A DIRTY SHAME tells what happens when a horny horde of "sex addicts" invade a blue-collar neighborhood, to the shock and dismay of the "neuter" neighbors. Rude, joyous and full of sexual anarchy, A DIRTY SHAME is a movie with a generous heart and a dirty mind: in other words, a classic John Waters comedy.

This was on the dish as was my previous review of John Waters' Pink Flamingos...

While this one is more "mainstream" relative to his earlier affront of taste, it still makes no FUCKING sense.

There a difference between "Guerilla Filmmaking" and just plain dumb. Just because a man does the same sick schlock for a long time, doesn't make it "Classic" nor "well done".

Poor Selma Blair...

Papa Mikey!

Actually, this one got universally panned. At least 'Pink Flamingoes' was an original, if totally in bad taste.

I... actually paid to rent this.

*hangs head in shame*

Still, Selma Blair topless! Woo!

Yes, this movie is clearly a dirty shame.

"Selma Blair topless" he says....I hope he fully realizes those enormous ta-tas were fake.
Anywho, just caught this on the dish....I smiled in spite of myself, though it is just plain stupid. Looked like a movie that was more fun to make than watch. Still, funny turns by Knoxville, Blair, and a weird little cameo from David Hasselhoff. The Urban Dictionary probably got half of their entries from this film. "Sneezing in the cabbage", "Upper Decker", counless other I've already forgotten....
Again though, this was just a dumb movie. Definitely over the top, cheesy, and cornball.

Duh, gee, really Mitch? Gosh, I'm so glad you cleared that up for me.

*rolls eyes*

I dunno Rob, when big boobies come into play, your mind kinda wanders and you zone out. Like that time when you were at the CN Tower and, um, you know, um, ohh, excuse me, I got distracted......um, CN Tower...yah, errr.....
