From Back Cover:
Eisenhower is President. Rock n' Roll is king. And Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker is the baddes 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.
I hate musicals, but I thought I'd be able to get past my hatred of them in favor of my love of Johnny Depp. Well... I wasn't quite successful. It's not a bad movie and it is just weird enough for me to not hate it, but I don't like it either.
