He's a doll. He's a dreamboat. He's a delinquent.
Cry Baby finally makes it to DVD for the first time!
Cult director John Waters goes mainstream (well, sort of) in this send-up of 1950s teen melodramas. Heart-throb Johnny Depp stars in the title role as a glamorous delinquent who heads a gang of hoods known as the Drapes.
Wade 'Cry-Baby' Walker (Depp) is the coolest, toughest hood in his Baltimore high school. His ability to shed one single tear drives all the girls wild, especially Allison Vernon-Williams (Amy Locane). A beautiful, rich, "square", Allison finds herself drawn into the world of Cry-Baby and his "drape" pals. Their star-crossed romance sets off a rumble between the warring factions and Cry-Baby ends up doing time in reform school... Will Allison still be there for him when he gets out?
Cry Baby is chock-full of rock 'n roll and Waters' usual cavalcade of eccentric celebrities; including Patty Hearst, Iggy Pop and - former porn star - Traci Lords.
