DVDFILE.COM: A Dirty Shame Review (683 words)
John Waters got his first NC-17 rating with A Dirty Shame, but for one reason or another, it feels as though he doesn't go all the way with it.
A Dirty Shame is one of Waters' best concepts ever, but it ends up being another in an ever-increasing string of disappointments from the beloved trash maven.
But for one reason or another, Waters treads water(s) with A Dirty Shame, and that is too bad - especially when the NC-17 most likely was due to the fact that a nursing home orderly stands in his birthday suit in front of Tracey Ullman for a few seconds.
TheMovieBoy Review - A Dirty Shame (2004) (595 words)
The opening half-hour of "A Dirty Shame" is comic gold, a literally non-stop barrage of brilliantly savage sight gags and hilariously lewd one-liners.
Although "A Dirty Shame" warrants the NC-17 rating it receives, at least in regard to the MPAA's stuffy standards, it is ironic that part of the core audience who would go wild for the movie—15-to-17-year-olds—have no chance of seeing it in theaters.
"A Dirty Shame" is what it is, and, regardless of whether it could be deemed "good" or "bad" (a case could be made that it is both at the same time), it is consistently, stomach-churningly watchable.
