Directed by John Waters | 1988

With Sonny Bono, Ruth Brown, Divine, Deborah Harry, Ricki Lake

"Not only Waters's best movie, but a crossover gesture that expands his appeal without compromising his vision one iota."
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Waters and Divine scored their biggest commercial success with this high trash, pop art musical satire. In 1960s Baltimore—in which the bouffant rules and every week a new dance craze is launched—overweight teen Tracy Turnblad becomes a local dancing sensation on The Corny Collins Show—and uses her newfound celebrity to become a crusader for civil rights. As Tracy’s mother, Divine (in his final film) steals the whole glorious, retro-schlock shebang. “When she’s onscreen, the movie has something like the lunacy of a W. C. Fields in drag,” wrote Pauline Kael.
