Cry-Baby [DVD] [1990]

John Waters fans, prepare to shed a tear of joy as Focus Features brings the 1990 musical kitch-fest Cry-Baby to DVD as you've never seen it before. Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, the image looks near-pristine, with the accompanying Dolby Digital Stereo sound mix really bringing the music to life as our teen hero attempts show the town squares that even a lowly "drape" can have a heart of gold. Of course, what would a Waters DVD be without commentary, and true to form, the gleefully distasteful director does not disappoint, providing audio commentary that is nearly entertaining as the film itself. If that's not enough for Waters fans, viewers can take a closer look behind the scenes in the extended featurette entitled "It Came From Baltimore" before checking out some truly outrageous deleted scenes that didn't make the final cut.

Synopsis


Cry-Baby
John Waters does a quirky spin on '50s nostalgia in Cry-Baby, his musical homage to Rebel Without a Cause and Romeo and Juliet. Set in Baltimore in 1954 at the birth of rock & roll, the film features Johnny Depp as Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker. Depp is pure charisma as a juvenile delinquent with a permanent tear slithering down his cheek, a reminder of his state-executed parents. In the depths of his despair appears goody-goody girl Allison (Amy Locane), who has a sexual crush on Cry-Baby. But Allison's Pat Boone-like boyfriend, Baldwin (Stephen E. Miller), the leader of the squares, is dead set against Cry-Baby and the rest of the juvenile delinquents and leads a revolt against them. In the resultant riot, the juvenile delinquents are blamed for the chaos, and Cry-Baby finds himself dispatched to reform school. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

    If you are looking for something entertaining than this is the movie to buy. I fell in love with Johnny Depp when I first saw this movie. He reminded me so much of Elvis Presley. This is a movie that a family could watch more so than what we have in the theaters now. I was entertained from beginning to end. I searched for this movie for awhile and I'm glad I was able to find it at Best Buy. Thanks Best Buy for being a place where we can find items that are not easy to find.

    Cry Baby is a 1950"s camp style movie "introducing Johnny Depp". The musician Iggy Pop was classic and established as an actor. All the actors were really good. The 50's hair dos and that red motorcycle and the music and the exaggeration of the images and acting made this movie fun to watch!!!

    One of the best movies ever. I've always been an admirer of John Waters and even more of Johnny Depp. Great acting and great plot. Feel good movie. And people are now surprised to hear Johnny Depp sing in Sweeney Todd? He's always been a well rounded talent. "I love being bad 'cause so good."

    Cry Baby is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a while. It has sly humor and a witty play on the 50s teen life. Some of the scenes lack the finesse of a grade A movie but overall it had everything a movie should; humor, fights, catchy songs and Johnny Depp.

    Back when Johnny Depp was taking interesting roles and before he became tied at the hip to Tim Burton. Good flick, but not one of John Waters best.

    The audio was good, but was more impressed with the picture quality. Especially upconverted to 4k.
