This underground epic, which breaks every rule of good filmmaking and good taste, set a benchmark for the bizarre that has never been equaled. Babs Johnson, a trailer park bon vivant proudly claims the title of the filthiest person alive. The envy of every neighborhood degenerate, it isn't long before another couple set their sites on Divine's legacy, and in the proud American tradition, competition forces each contender to outdo the other.

This is one of the sickest movies I've ever seen. I mean that as a compliment. One of John Waters's earliest and most notorious films.

With deliberate intent to shock, offend, outrage and disgust, director John Waters, succeeded, like no one else, in producing one of the most notorious cult films ever made. And, it was done, thankfully, for once, without the use of buckets of blood, or excessive gore._____ Yes. Pink Flamingos may, indeed, be shocking and offensvie, but, by the same token, it is genuinely funny in a very twisted and distasteful sort of way. I mean, this film was obviously not meant to satisfy everyone's palate._____ Pink Flamingos stars real-life transvestite "Divine" (aka. Harris Milstead) as Babs Johnson, a big, bloated, sleaze, known far and wide as "The Filthiest Person Alive"._____ Trust me, this is one film that you really need to see to believe._____ Released in 1972 this bona-fide b-grade, cult classic was produced on a skimpy $10,000 budget. It has since earned an amazing $6 million in the USA, alone.

You're either going to this is utterly disgusting and laugh your ass off, or you're going to think this is utterly disgusting and throw your TV out the window.

Either way, there is no denying that Pink Flamingos is a movie you just won't forget.
