Rating: 3/4 -- For a while the actors seem intimidated by the '50s references, but the film eventually develops a musical energy that carries the day. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- The nostalgic delights in Waters's reform school drool are often more subtle than his other period offering, Hairspray, but it's still a polished debunking of pop culture from the "Pope of Trash". Full Review

Cry-Baby takes digs at Jailhouse Rock in a musical number that Elvis would have loved to do. Full Review

Cry-Baby is often sweet-spirited even when its crummy, but there's also something fetid in its foolery. Full Review
Los Angeles Times

Rating: 3/4 -- It all adds up to zany, wide-eyed, quintessential Waters havoc -- the "kinder, gentler" 1990s brand, perhaps. But the genuine article, nonetheless. Full Review
Seattle Times
Jan 21, 2015
Rating: 2/4 -- If Cry-Baby has a message, it's that Cry-Baby and Allison deserve each other because they're young and they're beautiful, which certainly runs counter to Waters' affection for the grotesque, the bad and the ugly. Full Review

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.

Cry baby Movie Lover: from BERKELEY, CA US -- August, 24, 2018

Movies from oldies are always great quality. If you like Johnny depp, and musicals, are campy like my family is, you'll love cry baby.
