Dir: John Waters
Ricki Lake, Divine
, Colleen Fitzpatrick, Jerry Stiller
 - A particularly unsubtle plot, which shoe-horns a racial integration message into a TV dance show setting, still leaves you a fair bit to enjoy in this mildly trashy (by John Waters' standards) film. The music is naff and the dances cringeingly awful; the acting is good, especially from Divine who plays both the heroine's mother and the (male) owner of the TV
station. Stylish and colourful - can't see anyone doing a similar
film about the 80's!
