If you've got a taste for big hair, broad Texas accents, and gay rights, this mixture of white-trash comedy and coming-out melodrama is for you. Sordid Lives starts out as chicken-fried farce, as a funeral is prepared for a woman who died when she tripped over her adulterous lover's wooden legs; about midway the emphasis shifts to a drag queen unfairly held in a mental institution and the dead woman's grandson, an actor in Los Angeles who hasn't come out to his mother. The tone shifts wildly, and the humor depends on your fondness for the white-trash genre--if you like it, this will tickle your ribs; if you don't, it'll fall flat as the panhandle landscape. But it must be said that the cast (including Bonnie Bedelia, Beau Bridges, Delta Burke, and Olivia Newton-John) dives right in, no matter how over-the-top their characters get. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Out of curiosity why would Amazon Canada have an item that is not viewable in the U.S., U.S. Territories, Canada, and Bermuda.
It is a very funny movie.
This has got to be one of the WORST movies I've ever seen. It's not even funny from a camp perspective. I wanted to scream. DO NOT WATCH.Published 22 months ago by Andrew

Easily the worst flick ever made. I had to pull the disc out of the player during the graphic gay orgy scene. Olivia sings the B word and the S word. Read morePublished on June 3 2004
I watched this with friends the other night having heard wonderful things about it. Maybe I went in with too high of expectations but I thought the characters were a bit too over... Read morePublished on May 26 2004 by M. G. Mora
