Pink Flamingos (1972)

One word: Hilarious

More words:  Today's film is Pink Flamingos.  It's really terrible and funny.  Surprisingly the only reason I found this hard to watch is the acting.  The acting is worse than a high school play.  The characters go all out trying to gross out the audience.

The main story is about Connie and Raymond, a married couple who are jealous of Divine, who holds the title of "Filthiest Person Alive".  They try to outdo each other in filthiness.  Connie and Raymond have bright colored hair and look just like Jesse and James from Pokemon.  Look, they have stupid ideas, truly believe they are villains but aren't intelligent to pull of their schemes, have bright colored hair, and will eventually fail at trying to destroy their rival.

Yes, just as I thought, this is a gross out movie.  Movies that serve to just gross us out under the guise of comedy are commonplace now, but were new back when this film came out.  There's cannibalism, a fat lady covered in eggs in a playpen, incest, sex involving crushing a chicken, murder, poop-poop eating, and more.

Yes, she really eats poop-poop.  From what I have read, the scene is real and the dog was fed plenty of steak beforehand.  So it's technically gourmet poop-poop, being made of steak.  This movie was gross and funny and breaks all the laws of decency.  I will give it a 6/10.
