Dad runs a porn theater and is banging his secretary. The daughter is hyperactive and prone to awkward dancing for no reason, while the son is a junkie with a bizarre foot fetish that has him stomping on attractive women’s feet in their city of Baltimore. The family moves from one breakdown to another in camp style before settling down in a crescendo.

The Odorama thing was actually followed through by John Waters and scratch cards were distributed to viewers at the time.
