John Waters has stated that the only scene in the film he regrets is the unsimulated fellatio sequence between Divine and Danny Mills; he claims it was awkward to film because the two actors were friends. He also feels it is the most 'dated' part of the film; Deep Throat (1972) had just been released and this scene was Waters satirizing the rise of 'porno chic'. See more »

I'll have to change my appearance. I think I'll dye my hair another color and start dressing like a dyke.
Me too! I'll get a crew cut.

For Sadie, Katie, and Les- February 1972 (The Manson Family members Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten. February 1972 was the month when the California State Supreme Court abolished the death penalty in California (it was later reinstated), reducing the sentences of the convicted Manson Family members to life imprisonment.)

This movie has absolutely no cinematic value. Orgasmo would win an Oscar compared to this piece of trash. I don't see anything entertaining about screwing a chicken. John Waters stated that they got the chicken from a slaughterhouse and it was set to be killed anyways. WHO CARES?! Waters is going to die someday, too. Maybe we should just shove a watermelon up his butt and see how much he's willing to do for the sake of a movie. At least he would have a choice. The chicken was raped and killed. It doesn't matter if you like chickens or not, or what worth you think they have. They are a living creature that does feel pain. And anyone who is okay with that is a morally desensitized individual. I pity them.
