Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 04/19/1990
"...It's tawdry celebrity on the rampage. Waters revels in it....The wizard of odd still runs amok..."
USA Today - 04/06/1990
"...Waters embellishes CRY-BABY's endless set-pieces with inimitable touches..."
New York Times - 04/06/1990
"...Vintage trivia [turns] into crazily overblown little triumphs..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/15/2005
"[A] jailhouse-rockin' tribute to '50s juvie movies..."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2006
"[I]ts charm derives from a palpable affection for the Elvis-era mores it's sending up."
Total Film - 09/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a triumphant retooling of Waters' trash aesthetic for the multiplex."

Product Description:

Cult director John Waters goes mainstream -- sort of -- in this send-up of 1950s teen melodramas. Heart-throb Johnny Depp stars in the title role as a glamorous delinquent who heads a gang of hoods known as the Drapes. Trouble starts when Cry-Baby falls for a squeaky clean blonde from a rival group, the Squares. Their star-crossed romance sets off a rumble between the warring factions and Cry-Baby ends up doing time in reform school. Chock-full of rock 'n roll and Waters' usual cavalcade of eccentric celebrities, including Patty Hearst, Iggy Pop and former porn star Traci Lords.

Plot Synopsis:

Wade is the coolest hood in his high school. His ability to shed a single tear drives all the girls wild, including the beautiful square Allison. Unable to resist, she soon finds herself drawn into his world of fast cars and Rockabilly music.
