All I can say is weird, weird, weird. .. I've never seen so much un-appealing nudity in my entire life. It was like someone ate a bunch of cheap porno movies, an episode of Jerry Springer, Some LSD and some members of the cast of "Deliverance", and puked it all onto film. The WORST part of the movie is that the ending scene had NO special effects involved. . .

Anyways, It's on the "50 films to see before you die" list, , , which I'm trying to get through, , , and this film, , ,hopefully, , , means the worst is over. . .

It's a love or hate film... I personally love it.

I love all of John Waters work though... the man is the king of shock and he will never be topped. Pink Flamingos I remember watching for the first time and I was like "this is so gross... oh my god" the second it was over though... I wanted to watch it again, and again, and again. That's how Mr. Waters gets you.

In all honestly from listening ot his commentary tracks, college talks and interviews he seems like one of hte nicest and most down to earth directors out there.

Disgusting.Gross. No morals. The only reason for this piece of sh!t movie to have been made was to revolt and offend.

For me, this is a very painful movie.  It is definitely art by my definition.  Art inspires strong feelings in people and this one causes revulsion, pain, and a general feeling of WITHAIWT (Why in the heck am I watching this?) in me.  Do I really need to see a transvestite licking everything it can, including another actor?  No.  Oh, dear goodness, no.  Ditto with a man brutalizing a woman and stuffing a unhappy chicken between their naked bodies.  Again, please make it stop.

Of course, the final disgusting vision is that same large transvestite picking up and eating dog crap for no reason.

I have used this film against people a couple of times.  Once, it caused a wrestling match (with no few punches thrown) in the middle of the living room floor.

I've only managed to catch bits & pieces of this film but what I did see was just plain bad.

I had always heard about that ending, but had never seen it.

Thank you, Ash. Thank you so very much. And here I thought I was almost done with the therapy sessions. TeddyR

Waters says the cast ate the chicken after shooting that scene, so it's all good.  Smile

Ugh!
I watched that crap eating scene again and I cannot watch it without gagging.
I have to turn away lest I blow chunks all over my monitor & computer desk. 
Gross! 

I've heard that Divine actually ate that dog's feces in that scene.

According to what Waters was saying in a featurette about the film, the dog was fed nothing but steak for three days beforehand. Did I just cause a bunch of people to vomit spontaneously? Good. I've always appreciated this film for being what it is - an exercise in bad taste. If it werent for cult movies like this, they wouldnt get away with half of what they do in movies nowadays.  TeddyR

The biggest reason the movie was made was in response to Deep Throat which had caused such a controversy that they were arresting the cast for Indecency so The Water's Crew decided to see how far they could push the limits (infact the Divine BlowJob was done specifically to mock Deep Throat)

All I'll ever say that whenever I hear the song "How much is that doggie in the window" jingle, I have flashbacks to the final scene in this film.    Buggedout
