Director John Waters puts a twist on the everyday mediocrity of suburban life in the domestically devious Serial Mom. See Kathleen Turner like never before as Beverly Sutphin, the seemingly perfect homemaker who will stop at nothing to rid the neighborhood of anyone failing to live up to her moral code. It’s a killer comedy that will take you over the edge with laughter!
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Rather mild and scattershot in its satiric marksmanship...
June 21, 2017
An uproariously funny, marvellously malicious performance from Turner.

Globe and Mail
The murders are multiple but the joke is strictly one-note.
June 17, 2017
A killingly funny spoof of crime and nonpunishment.

Common Sense Says
Waters' cheery murder satire is gory and profane.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is considerable violence and killing here. Splattery gore happens both in video clips from famous horror movies (which are praised as entertainment, over more wholesome movies like Annie) and in the "real" narrative. There are depictions of sex and male masturbation and brief glimpses of topless/pornographic magazines. A Catholic mass is ridiculed. The swearing gets really vile in places, and, like the violence, it's meant as a contrast to the tame-looking situation-comedy milieu.
