Review Serial Mom may be John Waters lite, but that does not mean his material is any more sedate. In his audio commentary, Waters describes Serial Mom as Female Trouble, Part 2. He points out that both this and the earlier, wilder comedy starring his longtime collaborator, the drag queen Divine, are primarily concerned with the connection between "crime, beauty, and celebrity." Long fascinated by both the criminal justice system and serial killers -- Waters has even taught film classes to prisoners -- it was perhaps only a matter of time before Waters finally wrote and directed a comedy about serial murder...Turner and Waterston, both normally associated with much more mainstream fare, give exuberant performances, delighting, perhaps in their walk on the wild side. (Waters seems to take special glee in scoring the oh-so-serious star of The Killing Fields for Serial Mom.) Rounding out the cast are Waters' regulars Mink Stole, Traci Lords, and Patricia Hearst, all adding their own particular brand of stardust...Serial Mom may seem in poor taste, particularly in today's overly sensitive climate. Maybe, but it is also very, very funny, cheerful, and surprisingly warm-hearted.
