5.0 out of 5 stars You swapped me? For a Milk Maid?!!!
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars 12 (PG) Version 10 MINUTES MISSING and F words BLEEPED!
This is a wonderful, hilarious film, this review is about the BLU-RAY RELEASE

While the "Director's Cut" is on DVD, for some reason they chose to use the EARLIER 1990's version of the film for Blu-Ray.
It's missing over 10 minutes of wonderful footage Waters put back in.

Either a political decision or a sloppy move, either way there's really no...

4.0 out of 5 stars Young Johnny Depp, 5 Nov 2005
By A Customer
I'm a huge Depp fan and have wanted to see this film for ages. I finally watched it a few months ago and was pleasently suprised.
It's not as fantastic as some of the more recent Depp work but its still up there. Depp gives a great performance as Wade 'Crybaby' Walker and Amy Locane is very convincing as the 'square' Allison Vernon-Williams.
This is a must see for any hardcore Depp fans as myself although others may not enjoy it as much.
If you loved Hairspray, you'll love this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Depp at his cutist, 26 Sep 2003
This review is from: Cry Baby [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is one of my favourite films with Johnny Depp in! He does all his own singing (not a voice over), and he is just sooooooo gorgeous in this film. My favourite song in the film is "Please Mr. Jailer". I just think this film shows that there is a bad side in even the best of us! A must see for any-one who likes Johnny Depp & musicals!

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing, 22 July 2010
By 
Kuma "kuma" (Reading, Berkshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is really a film in two halves. The first half is classic John Waters, funny, nicely paced, lots of great strange characters and great music. About half way it meets a wall and the film goes downhill pretty rapidly. As soon as Cry Baby ends up in jail the film sort of loses it, there are some weak musical interludes (the earlier half seems to use original music while the latter part has music written specially for the film, some of it will make you grimace, especially Allison's big set piece at the end that was truly painful to watch and even more so to listen to), badly choreographed and slightly irritating, the plot and pace of the film seems to just vanish, it becomes just another Hollywood movie and an irritating musical one at that. Since this was John's first big studio picture it may be that there was some interference in ensuring he finished it how they wanted but who knows? Its watchable but not of Multiple Maniacs or Pink Flamingos calibre...

More fun can be had watching the tacked on documentary with John and cast talking about the making of the movie - it cracked me up to learn that Amy Locane, as equally innocent as the character Allison that she plays asked Patty Hearst on set if she had ever been arrested! (It turns out that Amy has now been arrested herself in June 2010 for second degree vehicular homicide for a fatal accident after consuming "a few glasses of wine", I wonder what John and Patty would think now?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 1 July 2007
By 
This is a great movie.

The music is brilliant, I think that "Guitar girl" needs to wash her ears out.

Ignore her review, the reason I say that is because she doesn't even realise that this is meant to be a funny and corny movie.

And it is funny.
