We gave it a B+
The reverent tribute site The John Waters Worship Page (http://www.johnwaters.net), live since October 1999, looks cheap — meaning the gleefully tacky Cecil B. DeMented director would probably eat it up with a side of dog doo. No matter — the wealth of useless info makes up for any lack of style. Especially welcome: bios of the Dreamlanders, Waters’ famous repertory of such trashy stars as Mink Stole and Divine. Each of Waters’ 15 flicks is highlighted, replete with classic quotes, like this Hairspray gem: ”Tracy Turnblad is a whore!” A great reminder that nobody does bad taste better than Baltimore’s favorite son.

This tough test separates Mondo Trasho purists from Pecker-come-latelies.
