    I wish we all had a serial mom.

  3. riraru's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Ich lache nicht gern, aber hier kam ich nicht umhin. Ein kluger, weitsichtiger, stets aktueller Film!

  4. Frode Kinserdal's rating of the film Serial Mom

  5. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Serial Mom

    3,5/5 Assez réjouissant. Même si John Waters a été plus mordant et cradingue, ce film est assez réussi. Peut-être avait-il un peu le chou en panne...

  6. Magda Magdy's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Waters has an eye for horror comedies. A fine mockumentary that questions societal values and domestic households in a fun, gritty, gore way. Absurd thriller.

    lots of fun from john waters

  9. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Like if Martin Parr directed a serial killer film. It has that 90s disillusionment which you can see in the Offspring / Green Day; a hatred for suburban culture; the 1950s generation floundering in the (then) modern world. It's not that funny. I barely laughed. But it is fascinating and very silly.

  10. Superfrog's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Jolly pisstake, both of the genre and an ascerbic criticism of well thinking suburbia, which puts class and appearance go past any kind of real decency.

  11. Viola Valéry's rating of the film Serial Mom

    John Waters must be the most brilliant motherfucker of this world.

  12. McOpinionated's rating of the film Serial Mom

    I gave up. Didn't make me laugh.

  13. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Awesome 90s horror comedy! Kathleen Turner turns out to be the perfect epitome of a perfect housewife: orderly, psychotic and bloodthirsty. Serial Mom is inventive, over the edge, positively tongue-in-cheek and – like Waters in general – doesn’t give a shit about your expectations as a viewer. Full of references to (other) horror classics, it’s a must for any movie buff with a taste for the macabre.

  14. Lydia stott's rating of the film Serial Mom

  15. Petri McBoi's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Fun satire with a wonderful performance by Kathleen Turner that transcends what could have been not much more than a campy comedy to something very special.

  16. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Serial Mom

  17. Alistair Leach's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Saw this many times growing up (thanks Channel 4) and after 20+ years, I feel age has been the kindest to this of all of Waters' films. A perfect mixture of 90s commercial indie film making with a dense rich black seam of John's humour.

  18. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Serial Mom

    John Waters is riffing on many of his favourite topics here, and the final product remains my favourite of all of his movies, thanks mainly to the fun central performance from Kathleen Turner. Brilliant stuff.

  19. LibertyCapz's rating of the film Serial Mom

    My first experience with the famously strange and eccentric director John Waters. Pretty entertaining black comedy, had me chuckling quite a bit. Wasn't as absurd I would have hoped though, considering Waters' reputation and all. Still good though.

  20. Ludovic72's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Tout le monde aurait envie d'éliminer quelques "nuisibles" dans son entourage... Partant de ce postulat, John Waters s'attaque (comme toujours) à la bienséance, en laissant une "mère parfaite" se lâcher un maximum. Il ne pouvait pas mieux choisir que Kathleen Turner, qui a l'air de jubiler à chaque instant dans son rôle de méchante hilarante. Et sa réflexion sur les médias et la célébrité n'a pas pris une ride...

  21. tinderness's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Es ist immer lohnend, zuzusehen, wenn Aggressionen NICHT unterdrückt werden. Ich mag Serial Mom, finde sie un-heimlich sympathisch in ihrem Schwanken zwischen kompletter Anpassung und kompromissloser Rebellion. Mord kann auch Spaß machen - im Kino allerdings.

  22. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Serial Mom

    John Waters is hilarious, no question about it, and the cast of Turner is a brilliant idea. It takes a while to start though and i am not sure about the thriller parody bit. But look how Serial Mom becomes a star selling a best-seller book, that is pretty accurate ! The observation of the duplicity and hypocrisy of this suburban life (the Sirk part) is where Waters really excels. "Scream" came out two years later...

  23. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Serial Mom

    Juror #8: "No, please! Fashion has changed!" Serial mom: "No, it hasn't" Plus that club scene. The Camel Lips - brilliant.
