Reviews
Mine: Fun, but not John Waters best, for that see "Cry Baby" or "Hairspray". Still enjoyable in a twisted way.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Beaming, cheerful Turner is the perfect mom to her suburban family; she's also an equally cheerful serial killer, bumping off anyone who offends her sense of family values. The main target of this movie's satirical barbs are those who would turn murderers into media heroes, but it takes plenty of other potshots along the way. Blander than most of Waters' films, this works only intermittently, despite a knockout performance from Turner
