Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The kidnapping of Honey Whitlock, who later joins her kidnappers' cause, is similar to the real-life story of how Patricia Hearst was kidnapped by, and later joined, The Symbionese Liberation Army, in the 1970s. Hearst appears in the movie and has appeared in all of John Waters's movies since Cry-Baby.
  • John Waters wrote up the lyrics for the spoof rap songs on the soundtrack ("Bankable Bitch (We Don't Need No Pitch)," "No Budget", et al.) during the screenwriting phase, but the music supervisor couldn't find any rappers who were familiar with filmmaking lingo. Waters then met, quite by accident, Baltimore rap producer Steven Janis. Janis provided DJ Class and a number of other Baltimore-area rap artists, all of who had to be familiar with the pages of moviemaking terminology that Waters provided.
  • The drive-in theatre in the end of the movie is Bengies Drive In which is still in service and has been threatened to be shut down for almost 10 years but still keeps its business
  • The title of the film is a play on the name of the director/producer Cecil B. DeMille.
