ldh's review

A masterpiece of subversive provocation, even more so that some of the films that follow. Pushes all the right buttons with a hilarious and inventive script and a performance for the ages from Divine. This was a literal finger up the tight bottom of the bourgeoisie of the time! Religion and sexual mores get it to the 9's without it descending into meanness. There is an overwhelming sense of joy that permeate every single frame in this film even though at the times, the taboos touched were so many that most people were repulsed. If anything, this film should remind us that there should not be such thing as a sacred cow when it comes to satire and comedy.
