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!
