You swapped me? For a Milk Maid?!!!
on 3 February 2006
This is a great film one of the best Johnny Depp has ever done.
Its kind of a skit of Grease but also of society being petty about stuff that doesn't matter (squares) and thinking teenage pregnancy is great (drapes).
The good girl decides she's fed up being good and catches the eye of Cry baby Walker, a "juvenile delinquent", he invites her to come see him sing and then impresses her Grandma by almost causing a car accident. After a slight fight which the squares started Cry Baby ends up in jail and because of a slight mis representation of the truth Alison thinks he's betrayed her. The film is cringe worthily funny but also gives important lessons in life, such as 'never follow a rat'.
I'm not much of a Depp fan but this film hits the all time favourites for all the girls in my family, definitely get this film. And its got Rickie Lake in it - its odd but she always seems to play poor people in films.
