Female Trouble is John Waters’ first movie after Pink Flamingos (1972), probably his most famous and at least most talked about movie ever. Expectations and predictions from film critics and fans were probably very high and wide-ranging, since Pink Flamingos set the tone for new kinds of twisted and filthy movies. 
It starts with a great title song, sung by Divine herself (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5xziMBpf0Q). It’s sleazy, groovy and it sets the tone for the rest of the movie. Divine also stars as Dawn Davenport, a female with a whole lot of trouble and who is living a very curious life. Nobody else could have portrayed the fictional Davenport better. Divine is wonderful as almost always. 
The movie seems to miss its point of satire, and gets slightly boring and incoherent as a result. It’s missing the far-going shocking scenes from Pink Flamingos, and at the same time the better story from, for instance, Polyester (1981). Watching a John Waters movie is always fun, but Female Trouble is a little bit disappointing.
