A Dirty Shame (2004) NC17 - 2 Stars

This has got to be one of the strangest movies I've seen in awhile regarding sex. It even brings to the table, David Hasselhoff taking a poop in the sky. Tracy Ullman, Chris Issak, Johnny Knowville, what were you thinking?

This whole town is awakened sexually when they are smacked in the head by the cosmic sex drive taking over the city. Though some, the "neuters," try and hold up decency in the neighborhood, the sex bug eventually effects everyone and they all need it now. Eeeeeeek scary! Leave it to John Waters.

The Pinewood Park and Pay local market is where Sylvia Stickles (Tracey Ullman) and her husband Vaughn (Chris Isaak) work. Vaughn awakens each morning with his manly hood proudly displayed but Sylvia doesn't seem interested. Upstairs, under lock and key, is their daughter Caprice (Selma Blair), also known as who Ursula Udders due to her excessively large breasts. While Sylvia is driving to work one morning she runs out of gas and needs the immediate attention of the local perverted tow truck driver Ray-Ray (Johnny Knoxville), to pump new life into her. When she's knocked on the head and sent crashing to the street, her sexuality awakens while she tries to hump everything in sight on the way home. And even though her mother Big Ethel (Suzanne Shepherd), tries to turn off the town, even she becomes overwhelmed when the love bug smacks her upside the head.
