Lampooning the oddities of the American middle class with perverse glee, John Waters, once labeled the "Prince of Puke," now stays in the Hollywood mainstream--but just barely. His berserk tributes to America's trashiest aspects allow us to get in touch with--and enjoy--our inner suburban housewives.

From "The Prince of Puke," a.k.a. John Waters, comes this hysterically funny, beyond-cult classic. The legendary Divine stars as "The World's Filthiest Person," who's on the lam with her bizzare family. Forced to defend her title from the evil wiles of her almost equally disgusting competitors, the Marbles, Divine pulls her clan together for a gross-out standoff. The Criterion Collection proudly presents the 25th-anniversary edition of Waters' seminal slag heap in a Director Approved special edition.
