"I held a Pasolini film fest and nobody showed up!" Waters takes out the Hollywood trash in Cecil, letting his bitterness towards the Californian movie machine shine bright.
  Our main character, Cecil is a filmmaker and a rebel who has organized efforts to kidnap Holly Witherspoon, played by the ever-obnoxious Melanie Griffith. I must admit I do like her in the cheap dumb bitch roles than in anything where she's trying to be taken seriously. It's nice to know there's certain things you can always count on. In a John Waters film it's Baltimore, white trash and soft core sexuality. On the whole, it doesn't get very far and is only mildly entertaining next to even Pecker.
