Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
In a trailer outside of Baltimore lives Divine, under the fake name Babs Johnson. Hiding from the press after being granted the title "filthiest person alive'', she also has her mom (Who idolizes eggs), her equally criminal some Crackers, and girlfriend Cotton. Despite occasional visits by neighborhood friendly Mr. Eggman, an upper-class couple name the Marbles do all they can do so they can be even filthier that Divine is. Now it's a battle between the filthiest.
An exercise in poor taste.

More Movie Taglines:
- An exercise in poor taste.
- The filthiest people alive! Their loves, their hates and their unquenchable thirst for notoriety!
- Cotton: Let's move to Boise, I always wanted to go there! Babs Johnson: Boise, Cotton? Why, that might not be a bad place! Crackers: Were you ever there? Cotton: Only once, we robbed a transit bus there, remember? Babs Johnson: I remember, the number 42!
Babs Johnson: Kill everyone now! Condone first degree murder! Advocate cannibalism! Eat shit! Filth is my politics! Filth is my life!
Crackers: Do my balls, Mama.
Sandy Sandstone: Well why did you hold me up for so long? Why did you keep asking me to come back? I had another job I could have taken. How could I have gotten information about this Divine you talk of? I don't know her! You could have given me some lead as to how I could have gathered this data you wanted about her. You lead me to believe I had this job. Connie Marble: Well, Miss Sandstone, Miss uh... SANDY Sandtone, you just must have been wrong in your assumptions, weren't you? I mean, surely you've heard the expression 'don't count your chickens'? Well, APPLY IT! I never gave you an answer about this whole thing, and as far as you thinking you had the job, well I never even considered that you would be the applicant we chose. You don't know enough! I mean, I wish everyone was like you and had never heard of Divine, but unfortunately that just isn't the case. Now if you wouldn't mind, there's really nothing left to discuss. Sandy Sandstone: Well what am I supposed to do now, that's what I'd like to know. Connie Marble: You can eat shit as far as I'm concerned, Miss Sandstone, or eat anything you like, or do anything you like, just don't assume that I want to know your troubles. Now if you wouldn't mind, I'm a busy woman with a full day's work ahead of me. Please remove yourself from my office! Sandy Sandstone: You're a real CUNT, do you know that? A real fucking CUNT! How can you be so shitty to people? How can you STAND yourself? Connie Marble: I guess there's just two kinds of people, Miss Sandstone: MY kind of people, and assholes. It's rather obvious which category you fit into. Have a nice day. Sandy Sandstone: [flipping her the middle finger with both hands] Eat the bird, bitch!
Miss Edie: Look, Babs. So many little eggies, and I'm still starving, and I'm going to eat them all before I go to sleepie.
- The dog feces in the infamous final scene are real. According to director John Waters, the dog was fed steak for three days beforehand.
Director Trademark: [John Waters] [manson] In one of the scenes of Divine sashaying through Baltimore, she walks past graffiti that says "Free Tex Watson". There is also a framed picture of Susan Atkins in Connie and Raymond's apartment.
Filming only took place on weekends; John Waters raised money during the week.
The house that Connie and Raymond Marble live in together was rented by John Waters and Mink Stole. Interiors were filmed in Stole's part of the house with minimal redressing.
David Lochary and Mink Stole designed and colored their own hair for the film.
