Synopsis


Serial Mom
Beverly Sutphin (Kathleen Turner) is the perfect suburban housewife and mother. She likes to cook, her home is immaculately clean, she's always well-groomed and cheerful, and she loves her husband Eugene (Sam Waterston) and her two children, Misty (Ricki Lake) and Chip (Matthew Lillard). There's just one problem with Beverly -- if you do anything to make someone in her family feel bad, you're dead meat on a stick. While she does a great job of hiding it, Beverly has a vicious and vengeful streak, and when she's not making obscene prank calls to the neighbors or bribing her garbagemen to save embarrassing items from her neighbors' trash, she's mowing down whoever would be so rude as to make her husband go into his office on a Saturday, break up with her daughter, or suggest that her son watches too many horror movies. Taking John Waters back to R-rated territory after the relatively sedate Hairspray and Cry Baby, Serial Mom captures a comfortable middle ground between Hollywood professionalism and Waters' subversive sense of humor, and Kathleen Turner has a field day as the sweet-on-the-outside, evil-on-the-inside Beverly. The supporting cast includes such Waters favorites as Patty Hearst, Traci Lords, Mink Stole, and Susan Lowe; Joan Rivers and Suzanne Somers appear as themselves, and all-female grunge-metal band L7 plays the all-female grunge-metal band Camel Toe. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    One of the most twisted comedies I've ever seen

    Posted

    This is one wicked movie! Yes it's a comedy, but it's definately not for everyone, even John Waters fans maybe kinda surprised by it, but after seeing several more of his movies-still have more to see) so far this is my favorite. Kathleen Turner is a riot as the cheery mother/ homicidal killer, who kills mostly when some one offends her family, but if you haven't seen it, you may want to give it a look, esp. if you like Kathleen Turner or John Waters I saw it for the first time at 14 and have loved it ever since. Give it a shot!
