Review
John Waters delves below the belt in this comedy set in his native Baltimore. It stars Edward Furlong as the snap happy photographer who displays the local sites and characters in the greasy spoon cafe. When a New York art dealer spots his photos, they and the locals in them become the flavour of the New York art set. Whilst Pecker is being flaunted around the city, the blue-collared folk are not impressed by their apparent 'kitsch' value. Probably Water's most commercial venture to date with only brief outrageousness in amongst too much normality. It's an amusing film and Christina Ricci is particularly good as the Laundromat Queen. But it's a chuckler rather than a belly laugh.
