"22.05.2015 Jos vain mitenkään mahdollista, on tämä vieläkin kummallisempi kuin yksikään Watersin elokuva, jonka olen tähän mennessä katsonut. Alku vaikuttaa hyvin paljon Female Troublen kaltaiselta, mutta muutaman käänteen jälkeen tässä ollaan jossain kirjaimellisesti värikkäässä trailer parkissa, jolla on oma kuningatar sekä hovinsa. Lavasteet, puvustus ja ihan kaikki tässä ovat niin törkeän mautonta, että pakkohan tätä on rakastaa."

" In Waters cinema, the extreme theatricality of the characters plays with grotesque. Desperate Living is one of his most carnavalesque movies."

" By far my favourite John Waters film. I absolutely love this movie! It's trashy and vile with a fantastical plot - but the characters - OMG, the characters. Totally off the wall. I know dialogue from this movie like we all do from Monty Python's "Life of Brian" - it's an experience you won't forget :)"
