Movie maverick John Waters is re-editing his hit 2004 film A Dirty Shame for family viewing.

The controversial film-maker believes the project should be available as a PG movie, even though it follows the exploits of a sex-mad housewife (Tracey Ullman) trying to satiate her lust with a selection of perverse characters in a grimy small town.

He says, "There's a neuter version that's coming out. For Mormons.

"Basically, it's a baby version. It's a movie for the entire family. If you want to take your family to see a movie about sexual addiction, this is it... It's the only sex addiction movie for the entire family."
