DO YOU RECYCLE?,
This review is from: Serial Mom [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
John Waters does it again with another classic that epitomizes his post-Divine era. Beverly R. Sutphin (Kathleen Turner) is an immaculate mother who recycles and listens to Barry Manilow. She lives in the Baltimore suburb with her dentist husband (Sam Waterston) and two children, Chip (Matthew Lillard) and Misty (Ricki Lake). Everything is seemingly normal except mom has some issues that she works out differently than most folks.
The film oozes with satire of the modern vs. 50's family, the celebrity status we bestow on criminals, plus other topics. I liked the background details such as the monster models I remember having as a kid as well as the Spiro Agnew painting in the courthouse. There were numerous memorable scenes and lines as in most Waters' films. Worth owning.
Parental Guide: F-bombs, magazine/movie nudity, weird sex scene.
