From the wondrously fertile mind of writer/director John Waters comes "A Dirty Shame," America's first carnal concussion comedy. Set in the Harford Road area of Waters' native Baltimore, "A Dirty Shame" tells what happens when a horny horde of "sex addicts" invade a blue-collar neighborhood, to the shock and dismay of the "neuter" neighbors. Rude, joyous and full of sexual anarchy, "A Dirty Shame" is a movie with a generous heart and a dirty mind: in other words, a classic John Waters comedy.
