A Dirty Shame
John Waters returns to trashy top form with this giddy sex farce; his most outrageous film since Pink Flamingos.

Sylvia Stickles (Tracey Ullman) is a repressed Baltimore housewife who morphs into a card-carrying sex maniac after receiving a freak head injury.

Nothing, as you would expect, is taboo in Water's overheated ode to depravity; his willing cast includes horny husband Vaughn (Chris Isaak), go-go dancer daughter Ursula Udders (Selma Blair), and writhing tow-truck driver Ray-Ray Perkins (Johnny Knoxville), who is convinced that Sylvia is the long-awaited twelfth apostle of erotic awakening.
