A strangely off-putting musical farce.

Basically the filmmaker reminds us of his affection for social misfits, but without much conviction. He's simply too hip to commit himself to his beliefs, and a relentless frivolity prevails.

Some of the musical numbers are fun and there are some good gags here and there, but for the most part this one is pretty weak.

Johnny Depp is extremely well cast in John Waters' sweet-natured fable about rebellious youth

If there is one constant in recent social history, it is that we feel nostalgia for yesterday's teenage badness even while we fear today's.

Everyone is clearly having a ball in Cry-Baby, and one can only imagine what the nightlife was like on the set

Pink Flamingos fans will find Cry-Baby decidedly tame, but it's one of my favorites.

John Waters' mischievous satire of the teen exploitation genre is entertaining as a rude joyride through another era, full of great clothes and hairdos.

Cheerfully camp, terrifically enjoyable teen parody that ranks among Waters' best moments. Oh, and world -- meet Johnny Depp!

It's worth a rental, if you're in the mood for something offbeat but less filling, but don't expect a revelation.
