This movie was hilarious, especially after watching the darker Batman Returns (1992).

You know its ridiculous when the opening scene has high school teenagers lined up for vaccination shots and they're all squirming ridiculously.

My friend Caroline said this movie was a spoof of Grease, and Wikipedia says its "a parody of teen musicals."

In any case, a portion of the plot didn't make sense, but being ridiculous just makes up for the plot holes. Filled with cheesy dialogue, the movie had several musical numbers, with a sound more akin to Elvis than to Grease. There's even a jail number!

Credits:
Lip sync instructor.
James Intveld was Cry-Baby's singing voice and Rachel Sweet was Allison's singing voice.
