From rottentomatoes.com: “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.” (Rated PG-13 | 1 hour, 25 minutes) Watch the original trailer.
