Allison is a "square" good girl who has decided she wants to be bad and falls hard for Cry-Baby Walker, a Greaser (or "Drape" in John Waters parlance).

I first saw this movie on TV and then just HAD to get it on video.

It's very funny and all the songs are great! Turn up the volume especially on 'Cry Baby'!
