It's sometimes strange where you'll find touches of virtuoso filmmaking, and no one illustrates that better than sleaze maven Russ Meyer. Meyer is right in his element with this overheated Souther melodrama complete with outrageous characters, cackling rednecks, and heaving bosoms. Definitely not for all tastes - but cult movie fans who appreciate Meyer's over-the-top style will find a lot to appreciate here.
Mudhoney has all the earmarks of a Russ Meyer movie -- over-the-top characters, clever social commentary and more big boobs than you can shake a stick at. If you can tear yourself away from the obvious distractions, its obvious to see that Mudhoney has a pretty cool story going on in the background that leads up to a pretty wild climax. Not an amazing movie, but not bad at all for what appears to be a sleazy B movie.
