Cry Baby (1990)

The Satire of John Waters and the heartthrob power of Johnny Depp are an IRRESISTIBLE combination.

Regan Humphrey

It is 1954 when prim and proper high school senior Allison Vernon-Williams (Amy Locane) takes a liking to juvenile delinquent Cry Baby Walker (Johnny Depp). It’s a simple case of opposites attract, until their burgeoning love and lust incite a class war in their small suburban town. Allison is a square, Cry Baby is a drape, and their community wants to keep them that way.

SUMMARY
An unofficial Grease (1978) spoof that tackles classicism and prejudice by means of satire and smoldering Johnny Depp. Surprising musical numbers punctuate this romp through suburban Baltimore.
