I saw this in Palm Springs it is said to be the only place it is playing but we cannot figure out why. It is a greaT ADULT COMEDY AND I SAW IT TWICE IN ONE WEEK.Others in theatre had seen it 5 to 7 times.The nudity scene is done tastefully.It relates to a lot of families who are not always proud of their relatives.I would see it again.
Simply put, a great movie! Outstanding. I need not say anymore.
I saw this movie about 2 years ago in a film festival and I had tried for 2 years to get it back to my area. It finally came back and again the theater was laughing so hard that you couldn't hear the entire thing. Fantastic funny moveie.
IF YOU LIKE CULT MOVIES THIS WILL REPLACE YOUR LAST ONE, IT IS THE ALL TIME BEST!
This movie is the most enjoyable film I've seen in a long time, and gets funnier and funnier each time seen.
A great film which for some reason has been pretty much ignored by the rest of the country while achieving full cult status in Palm Springs. It has been elevated to the level of Rocky Horror Picture Show and Beach Blanket Babylon here in the desert; it's the one thing you have to take each of your out-of-town visitors to see. It's poignantly acted and riotously funny. I'm waiting for Del Shores to do another film...and when he does, I'll be first in line. Don't miss Sordid Lives or you'll hate yourself in the morning.
This is one of the most hysterical films ever made. The more you watch it, the funnier it gets. You'll be quoting lines from this one forever. Worth it to have in your DVD library. It's a must see.
I saw this film a year ago in Palm Springs - where it is still playing at least twice a day - and it is the funniest film I've seen in ages. You can't help but laugh out loud. Well written, well acted, and well directed. It's too bad it is overlooked. The local video rental and purchase places have never heard of it. Everyone needs to see this film!!!
Hilarious. The characters are the epitome of their stereotypes. This movie is a must. Certainly, in my top 5 list for funniest movies of all time.
''Sordid Lives'' made me laugh so hard I had tears on my face. Hours after seeing it, I was still laughing about lines from this movie. Today I went online and purchased it since no video stores in my area had it. I plan to watch it MANY times and invite people to watch it with me. Being a southern woman, I have relatives exactly like every character in this movie -- which made me howl with laughter!
The best comedy I have ever seen. There's no lull in the humor, you can hardley catch your breath between bursts of laughter!
