Frustrated housewife Francine Fishpaw (Divine) just can’t take it anymore; she’s got a philandering pornographer husband, a pregnant teenage daughter, and a delinquent son. But will her life turn around when she meets upscale hunk Todd Tomorrow (Tab Hunter)? Inspired by the classic melodramas of Douglas Sirk, John Waters uses the larger budget afforded by his first studio picture to hilarious result, crafting a sublimely subversive suburban satire for viewers looking for the best in bad taste.

“A rancidly hilarious slice of Americana.” – David Ansen, Newsweek

Serial Mom

Every mom wants to be wanted, but not for murder one! Kathleen Turner plays Beverly Sutphin, a picture-perfect suburban homemaker who takes slights against her family very personally. But as the neighborhood body count rises, her celebrity status skyrockets. A deliciously demented dark comedy from outré auteur John Waters, Serial Mom is horrifically hilarious, featuring  excellent supporting turns from Sam Waterston, Ricki Lake, and Matthew Lillard as the nuclear family, plus appearances by Mink Stole, Suzanne Somers, Traci Lords, and Patty Hearst!
