This is a definite skull in my book; a lot of the memorable moments are memorable because they are disgusting and/or revolting.  I've never wanted to see a man manhandling a chicken between him and his screaming partner.  Ditto on Divine doing that to her "son" out of nowhere.  Oh, and the dog-crap eating moment was just uncalled for.  

I cannot disagree that the movie is art, when art is defined as a creative work that causes a viewer to experience feelings and emotions.  However, I prefer not to experience that sort of thing.

I agree, its too gratuitous for me.   But more power to him for making it.

I just watched this. The first time since seeing at a midnight showing back in the late 70s.

This movie is so f**ked up. There's nothing good in it. The acting is atrocious, the cameraman must have been wasted. The dialogue was about as p**s poor as you can get. The music was decent but kept cutting out. Yet, it was a joy to watch. Give the audience something they haven't seen and they'll shower you with praise (if they appreciate the art).

Every bad movie lover should have this on their shelf.

What's most incredible about Pink Flamingos is the fact it was shot in 72. Most of you weren't around then, but things were nothing like they are today. Which makes this picture even more incredible.

Welcome to the demented mind of John Waters. Once you go in, you can never go back. Your eyes will never unsee what they have seen. The talking butthole is now forever etched in your mind. Hehehe. This movie IS sick, and your a sicko for watching it. Your not alone though, millions of people love this stuff. It WAS funny, though, wasn't it? Not even a little. I actually found most of the lewdness in the film to be so absurd, that there was no way I took it seriously, which is where most people go wrong when "disgusted" by Waters earlier work. But come on, you knew where this was going when you picked this movie out, didn't you? Well, I actually think your just trying to troll us here, and if not, this least I can say is stay away from any more of his early stuff. Especially Multiple Maniacs. Demented forever, Demented for Life.

LOL, no I'm not trolling anyone. I already knew what I had in store, but I never knew that the scenes were so explicit. For example, I've read that there's a scene with 2 people having sex with a chicken. I thought it was a rubber chicken, and never even expected the "sex" to be as explicit as it was. I've read that Divine gives a blowjob to a guy, but I never expected it to be shown directly like in a porn film. These are the main reasons why I was offended, even if I knew what I would see.

Not much of a "blow job" I'd say.  PINK FLAMINGOS was intended to shock, and it does.  I looked at it long ago, at least 25 years.  And yes, I found some of it funny, bits of it unforgivable, all of it absurd, and am not sorry to have looked at the thing, but don't need to ever again.

But how don't you consider the actors or even John Waters a bunch of sickos? How can someone "act" having sex with a chicken, getting a BJ from a fat transsexual or eating dog poop and not be considered a weirdo?


Oh, I most CERTIANLY concider them weirdos, and that why i LOVE this movie! Because its WEIRD! its SICK! Its a film that does things that ive never seen on screen or ANYWHERE ELSE! It stands out. I cant say that I laughed at any point, but i did however catch myself staring at the screen with mouth agape at a few points. I watched it by myself, but  i think if I ever watched it with a room of pals, wed ALL havre a good laugh.

And you really shouldnt be ahamed of yourself. Theres no shame in the relm of b-movies. On the contrary! Im PROUD to be a fan of these bizaro fliks! Dont be so hard on youself. Buck up, chap!

Dark Knight Rises? Worst Movie EV-ER!

It is because this film goes for the throat in shock that I love it. Divine is by far one of the most memorable characters in the history of cinema. In fact, the only thing I had a real problem with was gaping into another man's rectum at her party and of course the fact that a chicken was killed due to near bestiality. They escaped animal cruelty charges by later consuming the chicken, but still unnecessary for an innocent creature to die in such a manner.

Despite my pair of concerns, I wouldn't change a thing.
