A Dirty Shame

John Waters returns to X-rated territory in this wildly over-the-top comedy. Tracey Ullman is Sylvia Stickles, a wife and mother who, after receiving a sharp blow to the head, suddenly becomes a sex addict. When husband Chris Isaak can't keep up, Sylvia throws herself into the strange netherworld of Baltimore's erotic overachievers. Featuring Johnny Knoxville as a sexual evangelist, and closer to 'Female Trouble' than 'Cry Baby', this is a real return to deviant form.
