It was. When it took a turn from warped, odd and bizarre (which I love) to... OMG, OMG, OMG... I was in shock. It did have some tremendous acting, and I was glad to see Tracy Lords in something again. She adds the right amount of campy to anything.
It is true though, not for those with a weak stomach, overly sensitive (remotely even, when it comes to this movie), or faint of heart.
**In other news, I LOVED BRAVE!! Such a good movie.
