Pecker Hairspray A Dirty Shame Film Poster


Box set containing three popular comedy movies from director John Waters. 'Pecker' (1998) is an offbeat comedy which follows the fortunes of a naive amateur photographer. Pecker (Edward Furlong) makes a living working behind a sandwich shop counter, but comes alive behind the lens of a camera. His snapshots of his odd family and friends are discovered by an art dealer, who decides they are masterpieces and determines to make Pecker the toast of the New York gallery set. But will his new-found fame alienate Pecker from his photographs' subjects, and, in particular, Shelly (Christina Ricci), the woman he loves. In 'Hairspray' (1988), overweight Tracy Turnblatt's (Ricki Lake) dreams come true when she becomes the newest star on a television dance show. Soon the most popular dancer, Tracy finds herself the focus of a dirty tricks campaign by a bitchy rival - but more important is her campaign to have her black friends accepted on the all-white show. 'A Dirty Shame' (2004) is an over-the-top comedy starring Tracey Ullman as Sylvia Stickles, a wife and mother living in Baltimore who, along with her husband Vaughn (Chris Isaak) and mother Big Ethel (Suzanne Shepherd), operates a local convenience store. One day, Sylvia receives a sharp blow to the head, which leaves her with a concussion. However, the concussion comes with an unexpected side effect - Sylvia has suddenly become a sex addict, and is soon attended to by the perverse and lascivious sexual evangelist Ray-Ray (Johnny Knoxville). When it becomes evident that Vaughn can't keep up with her sensual appetites, Sylvia throws herself into the strange netherworld of Baltimore's community of erotic overachievers, which includes her daughter Caprice (Selma Blair), who is living a double life as uber-buxom exotic entertainer Ursula Udders.
