As writer-director Waters (Cry Baby) sees it, happy-go-lucky young Pecker (Furlong) is just another regular guy with an obsessive hobby. He gladly toils in a dreary sandwich shop and adores his sullen girlfriend (local laundromat owner Ricci). But best of all, he revels in snapping "caught in the act" photos of his ever-lovin' white-trash friends and family, including sibling sweet-tooth maniac Little Chrissy, who when last seen was downing a bag of sugar; slatternly elder sister (Plimpton) who works as a barmaid in a gay watering hole and best bud (Sexton III) a bird brained, grade-C petty thief.
Everything is chugging along heavenly until discontent comes to Baltimore in the form of a sexy, trend-conscious Manhattan art-dealer (Taylor). Catching sight of Pecker's out-of-focus homages, she envisions him as the next art-world star and catapults him to international fame and glory. A wickedly funny, pop-culture sendup.
