Q Network Film Desk
Rating: 92/100 -- Desperate Living [is] a movie that feels like three separate films fused together. The first and the second are fantastic. Full Review
Rating: 62/100 -- Not for the weak of heart or stomach, this one is worth a look for truly brave movie fans. People with delicate constitutions shouldn't even get close.
Rating: 1.5/5 -- Nonsense.
Rating: C+ -- Even John Waters himself was not entirely pleased with his weird tale of mad housewives and eccentric lesbians in revolt, but the performances are good. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
Things get rocky at the Gravel household when paranoid Peggy Gravel (Mink Stole) and her murderous maid, Grizelda (Jean Hill), kill Peggy's husband. They escape from the law, only to wind up in the crazy town of Mortville, where Queen Carlotta (Edith Massey) presides over a sleazy collection of misfits, including the vivacious Muffy St. Jacques (Liz Renay). When the queen disinherits her daughter, Princess Coo-Coo (Mary Vivian Pearce), the citizens of Mortville decide that it's time for a few changes.
