Dirty Shame, A
Source: Catholic News Service
Only fitfully funny sex comedy set in a Baltimore neighborhood where anyone who gets a concussion becomes a sex addict. John ("Hairspray") Waters' latest film features Tracey Ullman, Johnny Knoxville, Selma Blair and Chris Isaak who gamely go through the paces. But whatever Waters' satiric intent, the humor inherent in sex addicts squaring off against conservative anti-sex "neuters" is fairly childish and quickly wears thin, substituting puerile humor for genuine wit. Almost nonstop rough, crude and profane language, full frontal nudity, sexual imagery, obscene gestures, scatological humor, casual portrayal and descriptions of deviant sexual practices, a glorification of freewheeling sex and some sacrilegious imagery. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is NC-17 -- no one 17 and under admitted.
