Eisenhower is President. Rock 'n' Roll is king. And Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker is the baddest hood in his high school. Johnny Depp heads up a supercool cast as the irresistible bad boy whose amazing ability to shed one single tear drives all the girls wild - especially Allison Vernon Williams (Amy Locane), a rich, beautiful "square" who finds herself uncontrollably drawn to the dreamy juvenile delinquent and his forbidden world of rockabilly music, fast cars and faster women. It's the hysterical high-throttle world of 1954 in director John Waters' outrageous musical comedy.
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 text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
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.
4-stars for a quirky and silly movie. Nothing extrodinary, but still fun!
