Product Description

Amazon.ca

John Waters's goofy, 1990 comedy about a Baltimore girl (Amy Locane) who can't decide if she should remain "good" in her 1954 world or hang out with the motorcycle boys is funny in a scene-by-scene way, but doesn't quite gel into the grand piece the director was hoping for. The cast is exceptionally likable, however, including Johnny Depp as an Elvis type and Iggy Pop as a chattering loony. The best material is set in a fringe world of bikers and losers on the outskirts of town, and Waters writes some hilarious sardonic dialogue for the characters. Cry-Baby is the last of Waters's more undisciplined features; he followed it with the glossier but no less perverse Serial Mom. --Tom Keogh

This movie takes place in the wild 50's when rock music is starting to grip the youth of America. The story focuses on Cry Baby (Johnny Depp) and his gang, a group of disfunctional lovable rock outsiders who are just happy to be themselves. One girl, Allison, wishes to escape her white-bread world, and instantly falls in love with Cry Baby. However thre are some twists that leave her unable to decide between Cry Baby and her Republican Youth boyfriend.
This is a hilarious musical comedy. Throughout the whole movie, there are lots of great song and dance numbers which recall the days of wild rockabilly music. Johnny Depp is a very good musical performer, and I especially liked Amy Locane's performance as Allison. Since this is a John Waters film, there is a lot of oddball humor in this film. If you like your comedy a little off center, this one will hit the spot.

At first when I started watching this movie, I thought it would be a smart comedy like "Grease", but as I continued I realized that it was silly almost to the point of being stupid. I was dissapointed with the result, but I also realized that it was supposed to be that way, and now appreciate it as a silly movie. For instance, when I watched "Scary Movie" I knew what was coming. I had already known of its stupidity, and so I enjoyed it.I had different expectations for "Cry-Baby", but now I love it just the way it is. It's full of fun that never impedes! The acting is great, especially Johnny Depp as Wade Cry-Baby Walker. Looking super hot as always as well! All the other actors/actresses were superb also. The storyline and writing were good for its purpose of being goofy. If you're looking for a smart comedy I'd suggest you view "Meet the Parents", "When Harry Met Sally", "Freaky Friday", etc. But if a fun-filled, silly comedy is what you want, then "Cry-Baby" is for you!

A rough little gem, courtesy of our resident sick vile genius, Mr. John Waters. This picture is a startlingly well-executed spoof on those dreadful Elvis movies which we love to hate. Johnny Depp has got the sneer and swagger down pat, and is backed up by a zany array of grotesque suburbanites lovable degenerates. The music is flat brilliant, as is the exuberantly over-the-top choreography (particularly Johnny Depp's in-prison numbers). The lineup of actors runs the gamut from Iggy Pop to Ricki Lake to Traci Lords to SLA darling Patricia Hearst! The dialogue and character development is toe-curling bad, as are fair-sized chunks of the cinematography. But then, Waters had to throw some of his trademarks into this otherwise sweet and practically squeaky clean film. Wrongfully rejected by many hardcore Waters-heads, Cry-Baby (like Hairspray) is a step into more conventional territory for the Baltimore auteur, but still has some of the outrageousness for the benefit of folks without the stomach for his trash masterpieces like Desperate Living or Pink Flamingos. So watch it already. If you don't find something in here you like, then you're too picky.

Johnny Depp is smokin' hot in this John Waters film as Crybaby, a motorcycle ridin' bad boy of the greaser-elvis-rockabilly variety who sheds a single tear and makes all the girls swooooon. Crybaby is leader of the "drape" gang, which includes feisty sis Ricki Lake, who's "so happy all knocked-up". He has his sights set on local "square" Allison, who's tired of being a good girl. Traci Lords is great as a big-busted slutty drape trollop with an attitude. Iggy Pop (bow down to the father of punk) plays crybaby's redneck uncle, who's MIGHTY close with Grandma, if you catch my drift. hee-hee!
Oh, and don't miss seeing Hatchetface (gee, why do they call her that?...)
please note: for repeated viewings, i recommend having the remote handy, thumb poised over the mute button. You can only suffer through the likes of "king crybaby" and "tear drops are falling" so many times.
ENJOY!

This movie is so bad it hurts. It's incredibly campy and silly, a wonderful parody. I'd say a definate must for Johnny Depp fans (and I can't say I'm one of them) and for anyone who enjoys a good laugh at stupidly silly films. No smart comedy hear, no deep message or meaning, just a hilarious spoof filled with catchy songs and dance moves. A good rainy day film, or for cheering you up, though I think if you were really in a bad mood this movie would just seem stupid and make you want to scream. Still, not bad when you want a laugh. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone looking for witty comedy or a serious or engaging film, just someone ready for a silly and over-the-top movie filled with song and dance and tons of unbelievabley stereotyped fun characters.
4-stars for a quirky and silly movie. Nothing extrodinary, but still fun!
