This is the movie that convinced a generation that Johnny Depp and Ricki Lake were cool. (Well, for a while.)

Hey! That’s Iggy Pop!

But this movie is pretty odd in that it doesn’t seem to have any of Waters’ usual actors? I mean, not even Mink Stole?

Oh oh wait — Mink Stole plays Hatchet Face’s mother…

But that’s it?

Hm… Oh, there’s more, but it teeny tiny roles. And Patricia Hearst. OK, there’s more than a couple.

This was even better than I remembered!

The last fifteen minutes are simply glorious.

Cry-Baby. John Waters. 1990.
