Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Shocking in a good way."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Morrissey's films provided a more welcoming stage for bona fide superstar performances than many of Warhol's own movies."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"It shows when it comes to trash, you can't beat a film produced by Andy Warhol in delivering the real goods."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews

"Morrissey is skewering a society in which people want something for nothing, and the result is a strikingly odd and important film."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"The still shocking film that brought the underground and Little Joe's privates uptown is as hilarious and poignant as ever."
‑ Brandon Judell, PlanetOut
