Genius!!By Jo from Gloucestershire. , 08 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Cry baby is a fabulous film! a total delinquent, but inevitably misunderstood! johnny depp is gorgeous (as usual) in the title role, & ricky lake is great as his pregnant teenage sister. but 'hatchet face' steals the show as a complete grotesque. (i think she was one of the witches alongside sarah jessica parker & bette midler in hocus pocus) incredibly tongue in cheek, when cry baby tattoos a tear on his cheek as a sign that he loves the 'square' girl (i forget her name!) it's just class! gets my vote every time! marvelous!

AwesomeBy a customer from Paisley , 21 Oct 2008This is a childhood favourite of mine as a big Johnny Depp fan I love this but if you are not big on Johhny depp But Like Grease you will like this movie !!!
Hate Teen Musicals?By a customer from Wakefield, England , 23 Sep 2008Well this is one to watch!
Especially with all the teen musicals out at the moment - Hairspray, High School Musical - I can see a lot of people like me groaning at the lack of intelligent films to go to the cinema for. But, if you have a wyked side, don't fret, this is a teen musical that completely anihilates the genre despite it's being made last century, and for Johnny Depp fans there is a double blessing!
He is his usual kissable self, (which for me is never a bad thing!) but the lack of respect they show towards people who help to create such horrendous viewing is hilarious, and a complete roller coaster ride. If a serious musical followed their example, the writers' recreational substances would be called into question.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who thought perhaps Johnny had sold out and used his good looks the way young pretty boys are encouraged to now. Then again, if you think Johnny is only capable of being good but a bit weird, this could be one to avoid!
Besides it being a great Johnny fest, I do like this film for its content. It shows no mercy and takes no prisoners. Rent it and see what you think!
